Plant a garden & make this Pineapple Mint Mojito recipe!

We have a great reason to whip up this Pineapple Mint Mojito recipe – it’s Gardening for Wildlife Month by the National Wildlife Federation. Okay, so I bet you’re wondering how the two go together. As part of the celebration, the NWF sent out gift boxes to different bloggers to whip up a herb-infused cocktail of their choice.

Garden for Wildlife is America’s largest, longest-running movement dedicated to helping local wildlife and wild spaces – it has seven million members. Run by the National Wildlife Federation, the point is to encourage homeowners, apartment dwellers, anyone – to create their own little thriving habitat for birds, bees, and other wildlife that may come through. This movement is 45-years strong!

I was excited to work on this post because we have our own little garden in our backyard, plus we’ve set up different bird feeders for all the beautiful winged creatures to eat and drink from while they visit.

How to join in! 

Garden for Wildlife is about teaching people to make a difference where they live by sharing the following:

As for me, I went for the cocktail!

Al the ingredients to make a mojito were included in the box, along with a variety of herbs to plant, and a fun recipe book.

I knew I would need more mint for my minty mojito adventure, so I went to my local nursery and bought a larger mint plant and repotted it in a jumbo planter.

After that, I unpacked the box and made my drink!

The perfect mojito recipe!

Ingredients for a Pineapple Mint Mojito:

12 leaves of fresh mint

Club soda

Cold pineapple juice

1/2 lime, juiced

1 teaspoon of brown sugar

1-1/2 ounces of white rum, optional


How to make the perfect mojito! #craftychica #mojitorecipe

  1. Rinse the mint leaves and put them in a small bowl, muddle them until they are smashed! Place them in a tall glass.
  2. Cut the lime in half and add the juice and pulp from one of the halves to the glass.
  3. Add a teaspoon of brown sugar and then add a bit of hot water so it all melts together. Let it sit for 3 minutes.
  4. Pour the rum into the glass, and then add the pineapple juice. Stir.
  5. Add ice until the liquid is about 1/4 from the top, then add club soda to give it a fizz!
  6. Tear off a large sprig of mint, rinse well and then use it as a garnish. You can also cut lime slices from the remaining half and slip it on the glass!
