A tasty riff on the mojito, this gorgeous cocktail adds tropical flavors to the traditional rum-based drink. Puréed mango brings a lush texture and rounded fruit flavor, while store-bought passionfruit juice introduces a clean and refreshing tartness; a sprinkle of specialty coconut-sea salt over the ice cubes adds crunch and balance.


  • 20 fresh mint leaves, plus sprigs for serving

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and chopped (1 cup)

  • ½ cup passion-fruit juice, such as Ceres

  • ¼ cup simple syrup

  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice

  • ½ cup dark rum, preferably Sparrow's

  • ½ cup white rum, preferably SLR

  • 2 cups ice

  • Passion-fruit seeds, for serving (optional)

  • Grenadine Sea Salt Bequia Blend coconut sea salt (optional, see cook's note), for serving


  1. In each of 4 sturdy glasses, muddle 5 mint leaves until they start to break down, a few seconds. In a blender, purée mango, passion-fruit juice, simple syrup, lime juice, and 1/2 cup water. Stir in both rums.

  2. Fill glasses with ice; top with cocktail. Garnish each glass with passion-fruit seeds (if using) and a mint sprig. Sprinkle ice cubes with a pinch of sea salt; serve.
