This week, the #SundaySupper team is celebrating spices and/or spicy food. I am a big fan of spices in general, so I just had to contribute!
I think I have a rather interesting Mojito collection on the site already and this Cilantro Jalapeño Mojito is yet another fun addition to it! I think Mojito is easily my favourit cocktail, so I am always game for trying new flavour combinations. When I made this Cilantro Jalapeño Limeade a while ago, I kept on thinking that the cilantro (that I usually call coriander) and jalapeño syrup would work great for any drink… and it did! It is sweet, fruity and earthy, with just a hint of delicious spiciness. This is an amazing mojito, trust me! Try it and let me know what you think! Cheers!
Cilantro Jalapeno Mojito
Cilantro Jalapeno Mojito - a refreshing mojito that is sweet, fruity and earthy, with just a hint of spiciness.
- ½ lime cut in wedges
- ¼ cup fresh coriander/cilantro leaves
- 45 ml – 1 ½ oz. white rum
- 125 ml – ½ cup coriander and jalapeño syrup
- 1 cup ice cubes
Put the coriander/cilantro leaves and the lime wedges in a Mojito glass (or if your muddler does not fit the Mojito glass like mine, do this in a separate bowl). Crush the coriander/cilantro and lime together to release their juices.
Fill the glass (or transfer to a Mojito glass and then fill it) with the ice cubes.
Add the rum and fill the glass with the cold coriander and jalapeño syrup. Mix well.
Decorate with a lime slice. Serve immediately and enjoy!

Hhmm. Jalapeno syrup! That would be terrific in Margherita. This Mojito looks super delicious. You’re a very talented photographer. The photos are beautiful.
Now this would be fabulous on Cinco de Mayo, but I’d be happy to sip on it all summer long!
