PersiMon® Mojito with PersiMon® Bites

This fun festive cocktail is a new take on the classic mojito. Serve it with little PersiMon® nibbles for the perfect accompaniment.

Serves 2



  • 1 PersiMon®
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 2tsp demerara sugar
  • Handful of mint leaves
  • 120ml coconut rum
  • Soda water, to top up

PersiMon® Bites

  • 50g full fat soft cheese
  • A few toasted flaked almonds or pine nuts
  • 2-3 cocktail cherries, chopped


  1. Cut the leafy top from the PersiMon® and cut off a few thin slices for the drinks. Cut the rest into thicker slices and set to one side.
  2. Put the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves into a small jug and ‘muddle’ them together, crushing the mint leaves (you could use the end of a rolling pin for this). Pour into two tall glasses, add a few thin slices of PersiMon® and top up with ice cubes and soda. Decorate with PersiMon® slices and extra mint.
  3. Spread the reserved PersiMon® slices with soft cheese, then sprinkle with toasted flaked almonds or pine nuts and chopped cocktail cherries. Serve with the mojitos.


Cook’s tip: These are best made just before you want to enjoy them!
