A light and delightful vodka mojito made with fresh mint, lime, simple syrup, soda water, and vodka, excellent for sipping by the pool or on the patio.


  • a quartered lime
  • 5 leaves of mint
  • glass filled to the brim with ice
  • 1 1/2 oz. bourbon
  • 2 tsp. simple syrup
  • to taste 1/2 cup club soda or sparkling water


  1. In a mojito glass, muddle lime and mint.
  2. Pour in the vodka.
  3. Fill the glass halfway with ice.
  4. Pour in the simple syrup.
  5. Finish with a splash of club soda.
  6. Stir in a lime slice and a sprig of mint.



  • Vodka: Use your favourite vodka to make this cocktail. Ketel One, Grey Goose, Absolut, and Tito make excellent choices.
  • Limes: Fresh is always preferable, but if you don’t have any, 100 per cent Lime Juice from your grocer’s produce aisle will suffice.
  • Simple Syrup: Purchased or made-at-home simple syrup. Combine equal parts sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat to make your own.
  • If you like, sparkling water can be used instead of soda water.


  • Use your favourite vodka flavour: Deep Eddy Peach, Smirnoff Infusions Watermelon and Mint, or anything citrus flavoured is some faves.
  • Add a fruit purée – strawberries and raspberries work well in this summer cocktail.
  • Reduce the calories without sacrificing flavour by using Sprite Zero instead of simple syrup and club soda.
