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).

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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. Read More
