It’s definitely lazy-by-the-pool time of the year, and what better to celebrate summer vacation than a collection of jewel-toned mojitos! Well, only made better if served by cute cabana boy, right? We went searching online for creative mojito recipes and came up with several beauties to share with you. You’ll have to source the cabana boy yourself, though.

Raspberry, mint, white rum: Icy-Cold Raspberry Mojito from A La Carte Kitchen is one of the prettiest mojitos I’ve ever laid eyes on.

Watermelon & Mint from Amy of Adventures of a Messy Chef. I made this recipe the other day and my guests thought I was the best host ever. See, dinner parties are easy with good booze!

In case it’s not 5 o’clock where you are, how about a Virgin Pom Mojito (pomegranate juice, mint and sparkling water) from blogger Mango and Tomato.

I’ve never had ice-envy before, but I do now. See this girly-pink Passionfruit Mojito below? The glass is made of ice! Yes, I want! Is it my birthday yet?

I found a satsuma orange mojito from Chow.comCochon’s Satsuma (Mandarin Orange) Mojito Recipe (you can substitute with a tangerine).

We’re having a summer cocktail contest at the Forbes booze blog – there are a few hours left to show your mojito love by voting for it as the ultimate warm-weather drink: http://bit.ly/dgwtYV.

Mojitos are so refreshing! I love how you can make them so many different flavors. I read this article about how to make the perfect mojito and thought i’d share! http://www.sweetspot.ca/SweetHome/expert_bartending/8842/making_mojitos/

The Ginger-Mint mojito looks fantastic! Wonder if I have any ginger in the fridge?

These look wonderful & refreshing, but wishing they were non-alcoholic. Maybe a future post could be non-alcoholic versions for those of us who don’t drink!
