Mohito Slushy

Frosty, minty and super-refreshing. Make a batch and store in your freezer!

Mohito Slushy
Serves 4

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice (4 limes)
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves (firmly packed)
  • zest of 2 limes
  • 1/2 cup light rum
  • 8 cups ice (crushed)
  • mint springs and/or lime wedges for garnish


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar and water. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until the sugar is dissolved and the syrup is clear. Set aside to cool.
  2. Combine the sugar syrup, lime juice, mint leaves, lime zest, and rum into a blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Add the ice and blend until slushy. Spoon into glasses; garnish with a sprig of mint and a lime slice.

  2. Freeze the leftovers (if there are any). Remember the slushy recipes we used to make in ice cream buckets and have in the freezer all summer long? This one works!
