While I was pregnant with my three kiddos over the course of the past 7 years (yikes!), I have enjoyed putting together some tasty non-alcoholic, baby-friendly concoctions, such as this Non-Alcoholic Raspberry Mojito.

Or…Faux-jito, as I have endearingly called it.  Mocktail?

Cute, right?  Anyone?

Anyways, I have really enjoyed this tasty little drink and wanted to share it with you.  It’s perfect for a lazy day at the pool, a baby shower, a backyard BBQ with the kids or whatever your little heart desires.

No alcohol.  Just tasty goodness.

Mojitos are probably my favorite cocktail.  I love them because they are fruity, fresh and flavorful.  Really, what’s not to love about combining fresh raspberries, juicy lime and crisp mint in a drink?

If you’d like to enjoy this non-alcoholic raspberry mojito without any processed sugar, you can instead make a simple syrup using coconut sugar or turbinado sugar or just plain ol’ honey to sweeten your drink.  All will be delicious and clean.  :)

Author:
Recipe type: Easy
Serves: 1 drink
Ingredients
  • 3-4 fresh raspberries, plus more for garnish
  • 5-6 mint leaves
  • 2 tbsp. simple syrup (see directions below for how to make a simple syrup)
  • ice
  • ¼ cup raspberry juice (or can use cran-raspberry juice)
  • 2 tbsp. fresh lime juice (approx. ½ medium-large lime)
  • ½ cup club soda or sparkling mineral water
Instructions
  1. To make a simple syrup, combine 1 cup granulated sugar with 1 cup water (or just equal parts, if making more or less) in a medium sauce pan.
  2. Heat over medium heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool.
  3. In a tall glass, add raspberries, mint leaves and the simple syrup.
  4. Muddle (squish with the back of a wooden spoon) well until the mint, simple syrup and raspberries are well-combined. If possible, try not to break apart the mint leaves, as this (in my opinion) will make for a less pleasant drinking experience.
  5. Fill glass with ice.
  6. Add raspberry juice, then the lime juice, and then fill with soda.
  7. Garnish with lime wedge or additional raspberries, if desired.
