Two Strawberry Mojito Mocktails with fresh mint and strawberry garnish

Be on trend with our Virgin Strawberry Mojito – it’s the perfect antidote to a warm summer’s day. Let’s unpack how to make a Strawberry Mojito mocktail that tastes just like the original, so no one misses the rum!

How to make a Strawberry Mojito mocktail

The Virgin Strawberry Mojito doesn’t differ too much from the regular alcoholic version except for the omission of white rum. Using rum typically gives this cocktail the thick viscosity and texture, as well as the ABV (alcohol by volume) warmth. To make a Strawberry Mojito mocktail taste just the same, you’ll need perfectly ripe sweet strawberries, in-season if possible, fresh mint, zesty lime juice, simple syrup for the all-important texture and viscosity and soda water to finish.

Make this easy Strawberry Mojito mocktail in a large glass or mason jar and use a muddler (or rolling pin) to muddle and mash the chopped berries with lime. Serve in a highball glass with a handful of ice and enjoy the refreshingly fruity flavours. Easy peasy!

How to muddle strawberries for this Virgin Strawberry Mojito

Muddling is all about extracting the juices from fruit and herbs. The two need to be treated slightly differently:

  • Muddling fruit: The best way to muddle fruit is to cut and de-stem them first before adding to glass or pitcher with your lime. Crush them with a muddler until smashed enough not to block a straw
  • Muddling herbs: Herbs need a delicate touch to release the aromatic oils. Don’t be too harsh or it could leave you with a bitter drink. Muddle your berries firmly first, before adding the mint gently

How to make this Strawberry Mojito mocktail for a crowd

We’ll show you how to make a Strawberry Mojito mocktail for a crowd to stay ahead of the game.

Prep in advance: Up your quantities and mix up your Virgin Strawberry Mojito in a pitcher omitting the soda water for now. Keep it in the fridge for up to 4 days and add the soda when serving.

Effortless entertaining: For large batches, mix your strawberry, mint and lime muddle and freeze into ice cube trays. When frozen, pop them out and tip into freezer bags for up to 3 months. Just thaw and add soda when the urge strikes!

The world famous Cuban Mojito cocktail includes a few of indigenous Cuban ingredients; white rum, mint, lime, sugar and soda water. A Virgin Mojito ditches the rum and gets a splash of simple syrup added for the all-important texture replacement along with club soda.

Cut strawberries and de stem before crushing them in a large glass or mason jar with a little lime. You’ll want to muddle them well, to all the strawberry flavours to blend into the mocktail and to stop the berries blocking up a straw when sipping.
