Fun With A Mojito Recipe
There is nothing better than drinking a mojito with the view of beautiful surroundings. This may be the reason why drinking mojitos outside is such an exhilarating feeling.
My experience drinking a mojito was not that, but I can dream, can I? I enjoyed the lemon-lime mojito to the point where I just had to perfect this mojito recipe.
The mojito recipe was alright at first when I used club soda, but when I switched that up into a lemon-lime soda, that changed everything.
Using real mint leaves also helped enhance the flavor of the recipe. A combination of lemon, lime, mint, and rum is incredible.
Is Mojito A Rum Or Vodka?
A mojito is not a rum or vodka, however, mojitos can have rum or vodka in them.
Typically, mojitos are full of rum, but if you want to use vodka instead, then be my guess. You can even get really crazy and add both liquors.
Can You Substitute Vodka For Rum As A Mojito Ingredient?
Yes, you can substitute vodka for rum in a mojito. In fact, most mojitos use rum instead of vodka.
Do You Have To Use White Rum As A Mojito Ingredient?
White rum would be recommended to use for a mojito, however, you can make a mojito without using white rum.
A good substitute for white rum can be coconut rum, and although mojitos are not known to traditionally have pineapples, I think a pineapple rum would go great in a mojito.
Can Mojito Get You Drunk?
Any beverage can get you drunk, depending on the amount you drink.
Most white rums are 40 percent alcohol and 80 proof, so a lightweight will need to be careful around it.
I am speaking on white rum specifically because mojitos usually have white rum as the main ingredient.
Additionally, if you were to use vodka or any other rum, the outcome will still be the same unless you use flavored alcohol.
The reason is that flavored alcohol is mostly 35 percent alcohol, and 70 proof. There are flavored rums that have less than 35 percent alcohol, the amount of alcohol percentage in the rum will vary based on the rum.
FYI, this lemon-lime mojito mint leaves recipe has enough alcohol to have you feeling good, but not too much to make you sloppy drunk.
If the drink isn’t strong enough for you, then add more alcohol to it.
What Is Considered Lemon Lime Soda?
Have you ever sat in a chair and thought to yourself, “what is considered lemon-lime soda?” Well, those sodas are usually beverages that consist of carbonated water, sweetener, and lemon-lime flavoring.
Sometimes the lemon-lime flavoring is natural, while other times the flavoring is artificial.
Either way, you will enjoy your lemon-lime soda, especially once you use that soda to make the lemon-lime mojito mint leaves recipe.
How Much Alcohol Is In A Mojito?
This will depend on how the mojito is made, and the mojito ingredients that are being used.
Be mindful that the more alcohol is in the beverage, the higher the chances of you tasting the alcohol in your beverage.
Additionally, mojito and other brunch cocktails can be served during the afternoon in bars, daytime parties, etc.
In these settings, the alcohol intake in the mojito will probably be on the low side.
