Tangerine mojitos are really refreshing and delicious. Learn how to make two tangerine mojito recipes to cool off and clench your thirst in our article!

A tangerine mojito is a nice little treat that you can make at any time to cool off. It’s so delicious and refreshing.

These characteristics make it the perfect summer drink to avoid fatigue while you’re doing many other fun summer activities. In other words, it’s a very light alcoholic beverage inspired by the Cuban mojito recipe, but with a few interesting twists.

It’s worth mentioning that you can make this cocktail with tangerine concentrate or tangerine juice.

If you make it with tangerine concentrate, the flavor will be even more intense and you’ll obviously get more nutrients out of it. On the other hand, if you make it with tangerine juice, the flavor will be a bit milder because a certain amount of water is incorporated.

Here are some tangerine mojito recipes that are really easy to make.

If you can’t drink alcohol, just replace the rum with sparkling water or lemonade. This way, you’ll get a bubbly cocktail.

Preparation

  1. First, take a glass and add as many ice cubes as you want. Then, add 2 or 3 mint leaves.
  2. Squeeze the juice of 2 or 3 tangerines into the glass and add brown sugar. We don’t recommend adding water because the ice will melt and then your cocktail will be watered-down.
  3. Mix the tangerine juice with the rum or sparkling water (whatever you like best). Then, pour the mixture into the glass.
  4. As a decoration, you can either place a tangerine slice on the glass or ½ a teaspoon of grated lemon or tangerine zest.
  5. Serve right away.

You can add more mint leaves upon serving to make this drink even more refreshing. You can also blend 10 to 12 mint leaves with the tangerine juice before mixing it with the rum.

You can choose to do whatever you like, also depending on where you’re serving the drink. For example, if you’re on the beach, it’s advisable to add more mint to the drink.

Another interesting way to prepare this cocktail consists of squeezing the tangerine juice and putting in the freezer so it freezes. This way, you’ll only need to crush the ice, add the mint and rum, stir, and serve.
