Other alcoholic beverages for a raspberry mojito

This cocktail is made with Barcardi white rum but can be made with any brand of white rum. However if you do not have rum or do not like the taste of rum feel free to substitute it with:

  • Vodka – is a bright, colorless and a odorless spirit with a fairly neutral taste
  • Gin – is also a bright and colorless alcoholic drink. Due to the juniper it has a very dry taste and that is why it is used main in a cocktail like a mojito but off course also the gin and tonic
  • Champagne – you can also use Cava or Champagne in this recipe. When you use Champagne you get a royal mojito
  • Tequila – when you use Tequila in a mojito you get a Mexican mojito
  • Licor 43 – this drink is very sweet by itself so you hardly need any additional sweetener. Just like with this Licor 43 balon recipe.

What ever alcoholic beverage you decide to use this raspberry mojito is an absolute favorite for summer.
