Virgin Mojito

virgin mojito

Made with mint, lime juice, and sparkling water, this mocktail is perfect for baby showers, wedding showers, and other types of gatherings, or anytime you want a delicious non-alcoholic beverage.

Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • Handful mint leaves
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons simple syrup
  • 2 shots of non-alcoholic rum (optional)
  • Ice cubes
  • Sparkling water or club soda
  • Lime slices, wedges, or mint sprigs, for garnish

Instructions

  1. Add the sugar and mint leaves to a pestle and mortar and muddle the mint to release their juices. If you don’t have a pestle and mortar you can use a bowl and a muddler or a wooden spoon to muddle the leaves.
  2. Divide the lime juice, simple syrup, muddled leaves and sugar among 2 glasses, and stir.
  3. Add the non-alcoholic rum, if you are using some, and stir.
  4. Top with a few ice cubes and some sparkling water.
  5. Garnish with a slice of lime or a sprig of mint and serve.

Notes

For a low-sugar virgin mojito, use sugar-free alternatives such as stevia or monk fruit.

To prevent the mint leaves from turning brown, muddle them with lime juice instead of sugar. This is a good trick if you want to do the prepping early and enjoy the mocktail later.
