This lavender mojito is made with a homemade lavender simple syrup, fresh lime juice, and mint leaves, and a delicious white rum. The drink has a slight lavender flavor with a beautiful lavender essence.

Lavender Mojito

  • 8 large mint leaves
  • 1 ounce simple syrup, lavender flavor, recipe below.
  • 1 1/2 ounce white rum
  • 3/4 ounce lime juice


Lavender Mojito Recipe

  • Muddle mint leaves and simple syrup together.
  • Add the rum, lime and lots of ice and shake.
  • Pour everything into a mason jar and top with club soda.
  • Stir again to mix it all together.


To make the lavender simple syrup add 1cup water, 1 cup sugar and 5 tablespoons dried lavender in a saucepan. 
Bring the water, sugar and lavender to aboil for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Then let it all simmer for another 15-20 minutes or longer if you prefer more lavender. The longer it simmers and sits, the more taste and smell you’ll get from the lavender.
Strain the liquid into a bowl to remove the bits of lavender. Pour into a  jar and refrigerate.
You can also make this recipe using a store bought lavender syrup too.

  3. Thanks girls! Amy, we actually just moved to a different apartment in the same building, ha!! We’ll be here for about another year or so while we house hunt and decide what area in LA we want to buy a house. That’s the hardest part now because we have to think about schools!! So we’re taking our time to decide 😉

  4. These mojito’s are the prettiest drinks ever! Love.
    Didn’t know that you moved! Congrats Eden! You’re so lucky to get to decorate a new place. I kinda wish I could do the same. LOL!
    Did you switch cities or just apartments within the same location?
