Why I love peach mojitos

  • Fresh peaches are delicious in cocktails when they’re in season, and when they’re not, frozen peaches work just as well.
  • Peach and mint pair really well together and they make a super flavorful fruity mojito.
  • Make your peach purée ahead of time to make entertaining super easy. Keep it in the fridge for 2 days or freeze it to have fresh peach flavor on demand.

How to make peach mojitos

FAQs and tips for making peach mojitos

What is the best alcohol to use for mojitos?

While it is traditionally made with silver rums, if you want to try different version you could use gin or vodka. I would keep with a clear liquor, but a dark rum would work, too.

Is Malibu a rum?

Malibu is a rum. It is sweetened and coconut flavored but yes it is a rum. If you use a flavored rum in this recipe it will possibly make it even sweeter. Adding a flavored rum will definitely change the overall flavor of this recipe.

What cheeses go well with peaches?

Peaches can go well with cheese like brie, gouda, or a bleu cheese can go great with peaches. Keep that it mind if you are having company and serving these peach mojitos!
