Virgin Mojito

Fruity drinks like this are fantastic for a family event in the summer heat or at any celebration. We love our wine here in Sonoma Wine Country, but I also like to moderate with mocktails. Also, if you like Mocktails, you might enjoy our Lavender Mojito Mocktail. It’s one of the most popular non-alcoholic mojitos on the blog.

  • Refreshing summer cocktail

Ingredient Notes

  • Simple Syrup is 1 cup of white sugar and 1 cup of water simmered over low heat in a saucepan until the sugar dissolves. You can make simple syrup in less than 5 minutes. You can also make honey simple syrup or ginger honey simple syrup.
  • We live in Sonoma and source local Simple Syrups from Sonoma Syrups.
  • You can also sweeten this drink with Stevia.

How to Make A Non-Alcoholic Blueberry Mojito

  1. Muddle the fresh blueberries and mint leaves with a spoon or a muddler in a tall glass or jug. This will release the flavors and juices from the blueberries and mint.
  2. Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice from one half into the glass. Stir well to combine the blueberries, mint, and lime juice. Add the simple syrup.
  3. Fill the glass with ice cubes, leaving some space for the sparkling water at the top.
  4. Pour the sparkling water into the glass slowly and carefully to avoid overflowing. Stir gently to mix all the ingredients.
  5. Garnish the mocktail with lime slices and mint sprigs for an extra touch of freshness and presentation.

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.

FAQ’s About Blueberry Mocktails

Can you use frozen blueberries in this mocktail?

You can use ‘defrosted blueberries’ in this blueberry mocktail.

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 also my question, and YES, you can! Instead of the Syrup, add sparkling water with 1/8 teaspoon of Stevia. Alternatively, you can use a tablespoon or two of Agave Nectar. 

What’s the best type of glass to serve this drink in? 

Any type of barware is perfect for drinking Mocktails!

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.

Notes

You can also turn this mocktail into a Cocktail if you so desire. Replace the sparkling water with Vodka. 

How To Muddle – Using a Muddler or the end of a long wooden spoon, crush or ‘muddle’ the limes and blueberries, releasing the juice and oils. Muddling the blueberries and mint is the best part; you can smell the mint as it’s crushed. If you have never muddled it’s gently crushing the fruit and herbs at the bottom of the glass.
