We have a cherry tree in our front yard that grows 4 different types and cherries and I’ve tried this mojito recipe with all of them. For the sake of research of course. So, with that said you can use any type of cherries and this mojito will turn out good. Also, sometimes instead of club soda I substitute Sprite Zero.
