Summer has (unofficially) begun! And if you’re looking for an easy, delicious and beautiful cocktail to share with friends, check out one of my very favorite beverages, the Malibu Island Spiced Mojito. I garnish this cocktail with mint sprigs from my own herb garden for a delicious and refreshing twist.

Malibu Island Spiced is a low-calorie spiced rum that’s perfect for summer entertaining and cocktail parties.

Lovely Libations: My Perfect Summer Mojito

Perfect Summer Mojito


  • 1 ½ parts Malibu Island Spiced
  • 2 packets of sweetener (optional)

Muddle lime, mint, and optional sweetener in the bottom of a Collins glass. (I usually opt to make mine without the sweetener.) Add Malibu Island Spiced. Top with soda water. Garnish with mint leaves.
