Non Alcoholic Raspberry Mojito

I admit I’m extremely looking forward to enjoying a nice chilled glass of Riesling for dessert or even a cold beer while I watch a baseball game.

After the baby comes, of course (hint, hint, baby Savannah!).

But, in the meantime, 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.  Or Mocktail.  Cute, right?  Anyone?

Anyways, I thoroughly 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.

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?

Try this delicious non alcoholic Raspberry Mojito which combines fresh raspberries, juicy lime and crisp mint.
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 cran-raspberry juice (or just raspberry juice if you can find it)
  • 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. Heat over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until it begins to boil and sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool.
  2. In a tall glass, add raspberries, mint leaves and the simple syrup.
  3. 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.
  4. Fill glass with ice.
  5. Add cran-raspberry juice, then lime juice and then fill with soda.
  6. Garnish with lime wedge or additional raspberries, if desired.
