The peach mojito is fresh and sweet: the ideal summer drink! Grab a few ripe peaches and a handful of mint for this impressive cocktail.

Peach mojito

Here’s a cocktail recipe that’s summer in a tall, ice-cube-clinking glass…the Peach Mojito! Imagine: the juicy flavor of that ripe summer fruit, paired with hints of fresh mint, zingy lime, and white rum. It’s light, refreshing and altogether irresistible. We’ve tried over 300 homemade cocktails, but the Mojito is remains one of our favorite drinks of all time. It’s ideal for fruity riffs like this one!

What’s in a peach mojito?

This peach mojito is a fruity spin on the Mojito, a classic cocktail invented in Havana, Cuba. Some say the origins of this drink go all the way back to the 1500’s with an early combination of lime, sugar, and rum. The modern version of got popular in the 1930’s, when writer Ernest Hemingway fell in love with the drink.

It’s now on the list of International Bartender Association’s IBA official cocktails, which means it has an official definition. For the peach variation, you’ll simply add fresh ripe peaches. Here’s what you’ll need:

Peach mojito

Skip this drink if you don’t have ripe peaches!

Give those peaches a squeeze. Does the fruit feel soft and have quite a bit of give? Then you’ve got the peaches you need for a peach mojito! Don’t even attempt this drink if you don’t have the ripest of summer fruit.

Don’t worry: you can still make peach drinks when peaches aren’t in season. The answer? Peach schnapps. Head over to our favorite Peach Schnapps drinks, like the Peach Daiquiri, Peach Martini, and more.

Also try our Peach Cocktails: the Peach Margarita, Bellini, and more!

Muddle the fruit right into the drink

Here’s how to add that lovely peach flavor to this drink: by muddling the fruit right into it! Muddling is gently mashing herbs or fruits to release their juices, which helps their flavors to incorporate into the drink. Here’s what to know about muddling:

  • Use a cocktail muddler. It’s the right tool for the job! Here’s a cocktail muddler, or you can use an unfinished wooden spoon (it’s a little more clunky, but works!).
  • Gently mash the mint! The key to muddling herbs is to be gentle and use a light touch. Don’t mash it with a lot of force.
  • Add the peaches and muddle again. You’ll want to get the fruit mashed down into a juice here.
Peach mojito

Make a peach mojito pitcher (for 8!)

Mixing up this peach mojito for a crowd? Instead of making one drink at a time, try our Mojito Pitcher! All you have to do is muddle up the peaches in advance. You’ll also make a mint syrup to infuse the entire drink with freshness. Here’s what to do:

  • Slice up 8 small peaches or 4 large. Then muddle them into a juice, just like for the single drink.
  • Make the Mojito Pitcher recipe, adding the muddled peaches to the pitcher with the mint syrup.
  • Add additional sliced peaches to the pitcher as a garnish. That’s it!
