Rose Mojito

Hello everyone! I hope you are doing well. So am I, thanks for asking. It’s almost weekend after all. So it’s time to think of a celebratory cocktail, right? :)

I know – I haven’t been sharing any cocktail ideas for three weeks (Way too long.) But I am finally back. And not just with any cocktail – with this wonderful Rose Mojito!

Indeed, it is not my first floral mojito. Previously, I shared this Lavender Mojito and Lilac Mojito. Since it’s the season of wild roses, you should not miss this one.

This mojito is absolutely easy to make. Rose aroma goes very well with mint and lime (and of course, rum), so this is a perfect marriage. For this recipe, you will need to make first either Rose Syrup or Rose Petal Jam. Don’t have fresh rose petals? You can use dried petals instead (About 1/3 cup of dried petals will be equal one cup of fresh.) No dried petals, either? You can make simple syrup by combining sugar with a little amount of rose water, then.

And you can also smash and stir a few fresh strawberries or raspberries. That will be such a terrific fruit and floral twist!

I hope you like this Rose Mojito, and you will try it next season! If you make it, let me know in this post or send me an Instagram message or share you photos adding the hashtag #havocinthekitchen.

Prep time



If you love a classic mojito and floral flavours, then you should try this Rose Mojito.


  • 2 oz. white rum

  • 7-8 large mint leaves

  • 3/4 to 1 oz. of lime juice

  • 1 to 1 and 1/2 oz. of either Rose Petal Jam or Rose Syrup

  • soda or sparkling water, optional and to taste

  • ice cubes, crushed

  • mint leaves and lime, for garnish


  • Lightly muddle the mint in a cocktail shaker until aromatic. If using blackberries for the colour, muddle them too. Add the rum, lime juice, rose syrup or rose jam and shake.
  • If desired, strain into a glass filled with ice. I prefer the pieces of muddled mint. Top with a splash of club soda and garnish with lime slices and more mint. Enjoy!

    What a gorgeous color. I had no idea you could make anything from dried rose petals. I actually have some, because I use them from time to time as decorations. I’ll have to try making a syrup from them.

    In addition to your sour cream and chive dip, we had these to start our special evening. I didn’t have rose jam or rose syrup so I made a simple syrup with rose extract and it worked beautifully. It is such a refreshing and beautiful cocktail – thanks! It will become a standard for our summer drinks!

    I’m sure just the smell of this mojito is lovely Ben! Rose is one of my favorite scents. You’ve presented the mojito beautifully. And I am so intrigued by Rose Petal Jam, and the rose/mint combo!
