What’s in a Virgin Mojito?
Our Mojito mocktail recipe is super easy to make, it pretty much calls for the same ingredients as our classic Mojito but without the rum. The main difference you’ll see is our Virgin Mojito ingredients swaps out sugar for a simple syrup. Follow our easy recipe, or use a store-bought simple syrup for this top mocktail hack. It gives our Mojito mocktail recipe the thick viscosity that mimics rum. Then all your need is fresh mint and limes, some ice and soda water or ginger ale to top up. Choose spearmint over peppermint, it’s easier to muddle being softer and sweeter. For the limes, pick bright green plump limes for that tangy tart sweetness a mocktail Mojito needs. Yellow limes are riper and maybe just a little too sweet.
