How to make a mojito

Cuban cigars: I could happily live without them in my life. But mojitos are a different story. A glass of deliciously refreshing lime and mint, made a whole lot better by adding rum. It’s hard to beat.

As with all foods and drinks that I enjoy, I always look for ways to turn them into an ice cream. This cocktail was no exception.

This mojito ice cream recipe is simple, which is why it works so well as an ice cream. Rum, mint and lime: they’re all perfect for ice cream. The rum creates a creamier textured ice cream. The lime and mint provide flavour without overpowering the delicious, fresh dairy flavour.

I urge you to try this recipe. It’s good

Mojito Ice Cream Recipe

Prep Time: 15 mins
Yields: 1L


  • 2/3 cup lime juice
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup rum
  • 2 cups cream
  • 1 cup full cream milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • zest of a lime
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped very fine


  1. Add lime, sugar and rum to a saucepan and bring to boil. Allow to simmer for 15 minutes until reaches a syrupy consistency. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  2. Add cream and milk to a large saucepan on medium heat.
  3. Meanwhile, whisk egg yolks and lime zest until yolks are pale.
  4. As the milk starts to simmer, remove from heat and pour half a cup of the liquid into the yolks, all the while whisking.
  5. Pour the yolks back into the milk and whisk until combined.
  6. Continue stirring the milk on a medium heat until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  7. Remove from heat and stir in the lime syrup.
  8. Add chopped mint then add to fridge and allow to cool for at least 2 hours. If you leave it overnight it will allow the mint flavour to infuse better.
  9. Strain the custard base then add to your ice cream machine and churn as per the instructions. Scoop into an airtight container and freeze for at least 2 hours until hardened.
