Mojito Punch

Servings: 24

  • 2 cups mint leaves
  • 2 cans frozen margarita mix
  • 3-1/2 cups soda water
  • 1 bottle (750 ml) white rum
  • 3 limes, sliced
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • 4 cups ice cubes plus more for each glass

Method 1
Create a Self-Service Mojito Table

Set out all of the ingredients for a mojito along with a laminated copy of the recipe. Your guests will have fun making their own mojitos throughout the evening.

  1. 1
    Set out the ingredients for the mojitos on your table in a line from left to right. You will need sugar, lime juice, mint sprigs, sparkling water, rum and ice.
  2. 2
    Provide utensils. Set out teaspoons for sugar, lime juice squeezers for limes (if you’re not going to squeeze the limes beforehand), muddlers for the mint, 1-ounce (30 milliliters) shot glasses for measuring the sparkling water and rum and a scoop or tongs for the ice.
  3. 3
    Set out glasses. You can provide old-fashioned glasses or any other type of cylindrical glass.
  4. 4
    Add additional fruit. You can provide a dish of strawberries that people can muddle with their mint leaves to make strawberry mojitos. You can also place mango puree or watermelon puree on your table to allow your guests to create other variations on the traditional mojito.
  5. 5
    Print out the mojito recipe on a large piece of paper.
  6. 6
    Laminate the paper or place it inside a plastic sleeve and display it on your mojito table.
  7. 7
    Print out supplemental mojito recipes if guests want to add additional fruit to their mojitos. For instance, let guests know how many strawberries to muddle if they want to make strawberry mojitos.
  8. 8
    Restock the table. Throughout the party, you will need to ensure that your guests have the ingredients that they need to continue making mojitos. Be sure that you purchase enough ingredients before the party. Estimate about 1 mojito per person for each hour of your party and multiply the ingredients accordingly.

Method 2
Make Mojito Punch

This easy punch will be sure to satisfy your guests. The punch combines margarita mix, white rum and fresh mint puree.

  1. 1
    Pour the mint, margarita mix and 1 cup of soda water into a blender.
  2. 2
    Puree the ingredients.
  3. 3
    Pour the puree through a sieve into a punch bowl.
  4. 4
    Add the remaining soda water and rum to the punch bowl.
  5. 5
    Add the limes and fresh mint leaves to garnish the punch bowl.
  6. 6
    Add the 4 cups of ice cubes to the bowl.
  7. 7
    Fill punch glasses full of ice.
  8. 8
    Ladle 1/2 cup of mojito punch into each guest’s glass.

Method 3
Plan the Rest of Your Party

Food, decorations, invitations and music are just some of the additional considerations that you will need to make when planning your mojito party.

  1. 1
    Decide on food.
    • Latin American cuisine makes the perfect complement for a mojito party. Serve tacos, quesadillas or other Latin American finger foods.
    • You can also create a buffet table for the food so that guests can serve themselves.
    • Plan on 2 or 3 servings per guest.
  2. 2
    Decide on the look for your party.
    • Choose the room(s) of your home that you will open to guests.
    • Arrange your furniture so that guests can move around easily.
    • Place trays on tables or trash cans in convenient locations to make cleanup easier.
    • If you want to hang streamers, paper lanterns or strings of lights, then choose the design that works for your space.
  3. 3
    Send your invitations about 3 weeks before the date of the party.
    • Choose paper invitations to mail or to hand out.
    • You can also send email invitations or create invitations via social media. Digital invitations make keeping track of RSVPs much easier.
  4. 4
    Purchase your utensils. Guests will need plates, plastic silverware and napkins in addition to glasses for the mojitos. You can also use real silverware and china if you prefer.
  5. 5
    Choose appropriate music. Create a playlist on your mp3 player or iPod or use a streaming service like Spotify or Pandora.
  6. 6
    Clean your house.
    • Hide all of your personal papers, and polish surfaces, like the tops of coffee tables and end tables.
    • Thoroughly clean your bathroom since many guests will travel in and out of this room throughout the duration of the party.


  • Make a checklist for the day of the party that includes any tasks that you need to accomplish on party day. Whether that includes purchasing ice or purchasing additional perishable food items, make sure that you jot down the things that you will need to do.


  • The worst-case scenario for a party is to run out of food. Make sure to plan to serve at least 60 to 75 percent of the guests that you invite.
