Yes you can get mojitos. I have them double the simple syrup to make it sweeter. But they do use fresh mint leaves.

The mojitos are pretty good. I will have to order one with extra simple syrup as Sinjan suggested.

On one ship (can't remember which one), I ordered one, and they said they did not have any mint leaves to make it. This was on the second day. Very disappointed that cruise.

Default Mojito recipe

What is a good recipe for good mojito? I like it crisp with a hint of mint. I ordered one for the first time last year on Princess and the mint was so heavy that is was like mouth wash. It was full of stems too and looked more like seaweed. I love the Barcardi Mojitos and since the one on the Princess I have been reluctant to order another one. So..how do you make yours?

I only order Mojitos on Carnival. They make an excellent one, served in a stemmed glass used for frozen drinks. Plenty of fresh mint. Only once (out of many) on this past cruise could have used a bit more simple syrup-but it was still just fine. If you enjoy a great Mojito, you will not be disappointed.

The best mojito recipe IMO is one that has a shot of rum, 5-6 mint leaves and simple syrup with a ratio of 1 part sugar, 2 parts water.

The trick is not to muddle the leaves, i.e., mash them into a gummy, pulpy mess. You just bruise them by rubbing the leaves between the palm of one hand and the thumb of the other. All you're doing is releasing the juices by breaking the cellulose walls of the mint leave, you are not trying to floss with the pulp you create.

When mixing the drink, put the bruised leaves in the glass first, then ice, rum and simple syrup. Feel free to stir with a straw or spoon, but try to keep the leaves on the bottom of the glass.

Most of all, enjoy!

Maybe now that they are returning the Splendor from cruise purgatory and she will be back in the Caribbean they will turn the El Mojito Wine Bar back to its original form - the El Mojito Mojito bar.

2 ounces cruzan black cherry rum
2 ounces mojito mix (like Dailys or your preferred brand)
2 mint sprigs
3 maraschino cherries
splash carbonated lemon-lime beverage (7-up, lemon-lime, or Club to taste)
ice

Directions:
1 In a large cocktail glass (like a pounder) add mint, Cruzan Black Cherry Rum and ice. (Mint may be muddled to your preferences).
2 Add cherries and mojito mix and stir.
3 Top with a splash of soda

I love mojitos. I will never order one on Carnival again, though. Perhaps I had a bad bartender but what I got was a mint leave and syrup salad-drink. It was so full of mint leaves and they were slimy. But they hadn't muddled the mint so no mint flavor. Any rum flavor was covered up by way too much sugar syrup and if there was lime in it, it was undectable. I tried to drink it but tossed it after only a few sips. I should've taken it back but ah well.

I think mojitos are becoming the new martinis. On the Freedom last month, they had a set-up outside the casino offering about a dozen flavors of mojitos.

We had a self proclaimed Mojito contest on the Miracle a year or so ago. I don't know if she is still there but we decided Vera in the Casino bar made the best ones. Also Mojitos are on the "classic cocktail" list. If you save your receipts and take them to the casino cashier they will give you $5 for each one in matching play in the casino at table games. Or at least they still did it in May on Paradise. Another reason our standard order is Dos Mojitos!
