This mojito cocktail is simple, which is why it works so well as ice cream. Rum, mint, and lime: they’re all perfect for frozen desserts. The alcohol creates a creamier textured ice cream. Lime and mint provide plenty of taste without overpowering the delicious, fresh dairy flavour.

Total Time: 3 hours 20 minutes


  • 2/3 cup lime juice
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup rum
  • 2 cups thickened cream
  • 1 cup full cream milk
  • 3 egg yolks
  • zest of a lime
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves chopped very fine


  • Add lime, sugar, and rum to a saucepan and bring to boil. Simmer for 15 minutes until the liquid reaches a syrupy consistency. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  • Add cream and milk to a large saucepan on medium heat.
  • Meanwhile, whisk egg yolks and lime zest until yolks are pale.
  • As the milk starts to simmer, remove from heat and pour half a cup of the liquid into the yolks, all the while whisking.
  • Pour the yolks back into the milk and whisk until combined.
  • Continue stirring the milk on a medium heat until it thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the lime syrup.
  • Add chopped mint then add to the fridge and allow to cool for at least 2 hours. If you leave it overnight it will allow the mint flavour to infuse better.
  • Strain the custard base then add to your ice cream machine and churn as per the instructions. Scoop into an airtight container and freeze for at least 2 hours until hardened.
