Mojito Mocktails

These minty mojito mocktails would be great at a luncheon, a brunch, a baby shower, a pool party—basically whenever you find that a cool, refreshing beverage would be welcome. Be sure to add the ice cubes and sparkling water just before serving to avoid diluting this pitcher cocktail (which is easily doubled to serve a crowd, by the way).

  • ¾ cup fresh lime juice (from 6 limes)
  • ¾ cup simple syrup (see Tip)
  • ½ cup packed fresh mint leaves
  • 2 (2-inch) strips lime zest
  • 4 cups ice cubes
  • 2 cups sparkling water
  • Lime slices and mint sprigs, for garnish

Preparation

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Combine lime juice, simple syrup, mint leaves and lime zest in a pitcher; using the handle of a long wooden spoon, lightly crush the mint and zest. Add ice cubes and sparkling water; stir to mix well. Divide among 4 glasses; garnish with lime slices and mint sprigs, if desired.
  • Tip: To make your own simple syrup, bring 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water to a boil in a medium saucepan, stirring frequently to dissolve the sugar. Let cool for 30 minutes and then refrigerate until cold, at least 1 hour. Simple syrup can be stored in the refrigerator, covered, for up to 6 months.

When I was pregnant, I drank mojito mocktails whenever I would long for an alcoholic beverage. This recipe is excellent, but substituting some ginger beer for the sparkling water enhances the flavor.
