- I have used Monin’s cocktail syrup in my recipe just to give them extra flavour, if you don’t have this syrup available, you can skip it and the drink will taste same without it as well.
- You can make its alcoholic version by replacing lemonade and adding Rum / Vodaka.
- You can adjust the tangy/sweet flavour of your drink by adding or lessen the amount of sugar syrup or lemon juice depending upon your choice.
- You can make other versions of Mojito by adding the corresponding flavour and fruits, e.g. Strawberry Mojito, Kiwi Mojito
