Recipe of the Quarter: The Mara Mojito



"Dawa" means medicine in Swahili but also refers to a celebratory tipple in East Africa. Created by waiter Ken at Mara Expedition Camp in Kenya, the Mara Mojito is a dawa made with the refreshing ingredients of pineapple, lime, mint and a dash of ginger beer. It is a favorite enjoyed after an exciting game drive, during cocktail hour (sundowners) and around the campfire.





  • ¼ cup rum (or try Seedlip for a non-alcoholic version)
  • a "splash" (approximately 2T) fresh pineapple juice + cut 1 pineapple wedge for decoration
  • 1 lime cut into chunks 
  • 6 mint leaves - fresh from the garden are best!
  • Ginger beer 
  • 1 mint sprig


  1. Place lime chunks in a glass
  2. Muddle just enough to release the lime juice but not so much as to mash the pith 
  3. Add in slightly slapped fresh mint leaves and stir
  4. Add Rum, then pack the glass with ice 
  5. Add fresh pineapple juice and stir 
  6. Top with ginger beer 
  7. Garnish with a mint twig & pineapple wedge
