Mojitos are a bartender's nightmare (oh, the muddling). But these frozen versions achieve the sweet mint flavor of the rum cocktail without the elbow grease, thanks to a whirl in the blender.


  • ½ tablespoon finely grated lime zest, plus 1 ½ cups fresh lime juice (from 9 limes)

  • 1 ½ cups water

  • 1 ½ cups sugar

  • 1 cup chopped fresh mint

  • ¼ cup light rum

  • Mint sprigs, for garnish


  1. Puree lime zest and juice, water, sugar, and mint in a blender. Strain mixture through a fine sieve into a bowl; discard solids. Stir in rum. Divide among twelve 3-ounce paper cups. Freeze on a rimmed baking sheet for at least 5 hours. Garnish with mint sprigs.

Cook's Notes

Ices can be frozen, covered with plastic wrap, for up to 2 weeks.
