mojito with a can of Q ginger beer next to it. with lime wedges and mint all around

After the great success of Cocktail Week earlier this year, I’ve been on a mission to share with you all of my favorite summer cocktails and up next on my list is this Ginger Beer Mojito! It’s basically a regular mojito but using ginger beer instead of club soda and I’m pretty sure that I like this version even better than the original.

I’m partnering up today with Q Mixers and using their Q Ginger Beer to make these drinks. I picked these up at my local Safeway store and love to keep them on hand in our bar cart for easy Mojito making (amongst other cocktails)! Save $1 now on your Q Mixers purchase at your local Safeway!

Why I love this ginger beer:

  • It’s less sweet than others that I’ve tried- I don’t like my cocktails to be overly sweet, so this particular ginger beer has been perfect for me!
  • HIGH Carbonation- I LOVE super bubbly drinks and this ginger beer really delivers with the carbonation! It’s overall fizzier and more refreshing than many others that I’ve tried and I LOVE it for that!
  • Real & simple ingredients- The ingredients in this ginger beer are all natural and sourced from around the world for the boldest flavor.
  • Perfect for last minute cocktail-ing- As I mentioned before, I like to keep these cans in my bar cart at all times. One can ends up being perfect for about 2 cocktails. I hate opening a large bottle of club soda for a few cocktails and then end up having the bottle sitting in my fridge unused.

Making the mojito is super simple! Muddle together the lime and mint in a cocktail shaker or tall glass. Then add in the remaining ingredients and top with the ginger beer and a sprig of mint! Legit my favorite summer drink. I grow mint in my garden every year largely just for these drinks :D

While I like to do this in a cocktail shaker, you can also muddle the lime and mint directly in the glass that you’re serving the drink in and then leave them at the bottom of the glass.
