Mojito Slushy with Rum Floater

This must be the best mojito slushy I've had.  You can also make most ahead when party planning.  It's a refreshing crowd pleaser.  

Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 13 minutes
Servings 4 servings


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves (a bunch)
  • 1/2 cup lime juice, fresh squeezed (about 6 limes)
  • 2 limes, zested
  • 1/2 cup Bacardi Superior Rum
  • 8 cups ice cubes
  • extra rum to float on top of slushy
  • garnish: mint springs and lime wedges


  1. In a sauce pan over medium heat, cook the water and sugar for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until the sugar has dissolved and the syrup is clear.   Set aside to cool to room temperature.  

  2. When the syrup has cooled, add it to a blender along with the mint leaves, lime juice and zest and Bacardi Rum.   Blend to combine.

  3. Add ice and pulverize into a slushy.  Float extra rum on top and garnish with mint and limes.  

  4. Tip:  If making ahead of time, blend all ingredients except the ice.   Store in a covered container in the refrigerator until you're ready to blend with the ice and serve.
