This refreshing virgin mojito recipe is so simple to make, and healthy too. The flavours remind me of summer by the pool.
A non-alcoholic mojito recipe is perfect for non-drinkers, pregnant women and drivers who have to limit their drinking.
This recipe is made within the serving glass so it’s one of my super easy mocktails, with very little washing up to do afterwards!
I used monk fruit sweetener in this virgin mojito recipe, which is a low carb sugar replacement. You could also use Stevia, coconut sugar, honey, or ay sweetener of your choice. If you like tangy flavours, you might omit the sweetener altogether.
If you want to make this for a crowd, just increase the quantities and muddle inside a jug. You can even ‘pre-muddle’ the lime, mint and sweetener, then pop it in the fridge. Then just top it with ice and sparkling water when your guests arrive.
A note on muddling: The idea is to ‘bruise’ the mint. This is what makes it release its lovely flavour. Then the lime needs to be ‘smooshed’ (thats the scientific term) so their juices are released. Muddling for about 1 minute is ideal.
Make some pretty lemon iceblocks to serve with this mocktail recipe, they will go down a treat! I highly recommend them if you want to make it just that little more special.
I hope you enjoy this virgin mojito recipe as much as I loved creating it.
