Blueberry Mojito Mocktail
Every bartender I interview says Mojito Mocktails are the most popular Virgin Drinks. I was in Healdsburg (CA) yesterday at Willys Seafood and Raw Bar and ordered a non-alcoholic Mojito. We love our wine here in Sonoma Wine Country, but I also like to moderate with mocktails. Also, whether you don’t drink, want to drink less, or are expecting a baby, Mocktails are having a ‘moment’! Over 50% of drinkers participate in ‘dry January,’ and many people choose to only have a cocktail or two on weekends. Mocktails are the ‘ultimate cocktail replacement’—no more sparkling water with a lime wedge. Now, there are delectable alternatives to almost every adult beverage.
Beautiful drinks are all over Instagram, and this non-alcoholic Blueberry Mojito Mocktail Recipe will soon become part of your recipe round-up. If you like this Mocktail, you might also enjoy our Lavender Mojito Mocktail.

How to Make Non-Alcoholic Blueberry Mojito Mocktail
Step 1 – Muddle the Fruit, Mint, and Limes
Place 2 quartered limes, 10 fresh Mint Leaves, and ¼ cup of fresh Blueberries in a tall glass.
Using a Cocktail Muddler or the end of a wooden spoon, crush or ‘muddle’ the limes and blueberries, releasing the juice and oils.
Muddling the blueberries is the best part; you can smell the mint as it’s crushed. Also, if you have never muddled it’s gently crushing the fruit and herbs at the bottom of the glass.
Step 2 – Add 2 Tablespoons of Lavender or Simple Syrup
Add two tablespoons of lavender or simple syrup to the glass with the juice of one fresh Lime. Give the ingredients a very gentle stir.
Step 3 – Add Ice Cubes and Sparkling Water
Add enough ice to fill the glass and pour sparkling water like Pellegrino.
Add a few blueberries as a garnish and place a lime wedge on the glass. You can also tuck a mint sprig into the glass.
Enjoy your first sip of this beautiful drink!
Your Questions Answered
Can I add alcohol to this Blueberry Mocktail and make it a Blueberry Mojito Cocktail?
By all means! You can offer vodka or rum to your guest to pour into the drink instead of sparkling water. Use approximately 1 ½ shots of alcohol per drink. You can of course, then leave out the sparkling water.
Can you use Frozen Blueberries in this Mocktail?
You can, but you need to defrost them before using them.
Can I make a pitcher of Blueberry Mojito Mocktails?
Of course! The recipe card offers instructions for tripling the recipe.
Is a Mocktail the same as a ZERO PROOF drink?
Yes! Sophisticated drinks with the same flavor and presentation as Cocktails but without alcohol are called Mocktails or ZERO PROOF Drinks. Many bars now offer all kinds of delicious non-alcoholic cocktails on their menu. Many have a signature Mocktail. These drinks are an excellent replacement for alcoholic beverages.
Can children drink Mocktails?
Yes! One of the best parts of making Mocktails is having a fun option for the entire family, including the kids.
Can you make a Mocktail without ‘Simple Syrup’?
This was my question also, and YES, you can! Instead of the Syrup, add the sparkling water with a 1/8 teaspoon of Stevia. Alternatively, you can use a tablespoon or two of Agave Nectar.
Can you use other kinds of fruits in Mocktails?
This drink would be tasty with raspberries, blackberries, or strawberries! If you want to make this without Blueberry, here is our Lavender Mojito Recipe!
What’s the best type of glass to serve this drink in?
If you are muddling in the serving glass, use a strong drink glass that won’t crack if you over-enthusiastically muddle the mint. I have some beautiful, tall glasses from France that are as strong as steel but lovely to serve mocktails. Mid-size glasses such as Collins Glass could also work very well. There are no rules, so have fun!
