Autumn Pear Mojito

People usually associate mojitos with vacation and the summertime, especially because the main ingredients are fresh lime juice and mint leaves. However, I found a way to make the recipe last well into fall for a sweet and refreshing adult beverage.

I love making new cocktails and drinks for my blog, and this has been one of my favorite creations to date! I had always been too intimidated to make mojitos, but after attempting – and succeeding! – I feel so silly; this drink was so refreshing, so tasty, and super easy. I’ve simplified a lot of the steps, so this can be a no-fuss, easy-to-make cocktail for you to make at home. The flavors are fresh and fun, and perfect for autumn!

It's a great drink to make for a fall cocktail party, housewarming or even as a pre-Thanksgiving dinner beverage. You have to try it for yourself and see just how delicious mojitos can be well into fall. This is the perfect drink for a truly pear-fect pairing when enjoyed with Harry & David's famous pears - your taste buds are sure to sing the song of fall flavors!



  • 2 cup peeled and chopped pears
  • 3/4 cup fresh mint leaves (about 5-7 mint leaves per drink)
  • 3-4 tablespoons agave nectar (You can also use simple syrup instead (equal parts sugar and water, heated on the stovetop)
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 5 ounces good quality white rum or vodka
  • 6 cups club soda

Place the chopped pears, mint leaves, agave nectar, and lime juice in the bottom of your pitcher and muddle the ingredients to combine the flavors.

Pour in liquor and club soda and stir slowly to combine.

Pour over ice and serve! Top with more fresh mint or lime wedges.

*You can also make this in individual glasses. This recipe is for four glasses, so just quarter the recipe for one glass

Makes: 4
