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. 🙂

- 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
- 1/4 cup raspberry juice or can use cran-raspberry juice
- 2 tbsp fresh lime juice approx. 1/2 medium-large lime
- 1/2 cup club soda or sparkling mineral water
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 heat, stirring frequently, until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow to cool.
In a tall glass, add raspberries, mint leaves and the simple syrup.
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.
Fill glass with ice.
Add raspberry juice, then the lime juice, and then fill with soda.
Garnish with lime wedge or additional raspberries, if desired.

Huge hit!! Easy to make, so fresh & delicious!
Loved it! I had pomegranate seltzer and cran-raspberry juice and it was amazing. The tartness of the lime is what makes it not too sweet and oh-so-refresshing.
Absolutely amazing! I made it with geridine, instead of rasberry juice, definitely one of my favorites!
It’s really delicious!!!
I also tried it with blackberries, I loved it!
Please can this raspberry be found in Nigeria?
This was such a refreshing delicious drink.
I was so happy with the outcome 😊
Made this but never made syrup just used sugar to taste as I love the sharpness of raspberries and the raspberry juice I bought had sugar as main ingredient. I made this drink up as a last drink during an afternoon tea, folk did not stop talking about it! Of course they want your link!
Hi! I plan on making this for a baby shower! Do you by chance have the measurements for a 2 gallon serving? If not, I’ll just make it to taste but thought I would ask!
Did you end up making this for a baby shower? If so, can you share any tips for making it in large quantities? I am co-hosting a shower soon and this sounds fantastic.
Oh poop wat up!
I’m going to make this when my pregnant daughter visits this summer. Thanks!
Yay! I hope she enjoys it!! 🙂
This is so pretty and it looks soooo refreshing. I love the presentation! Looks like a crowd pleaser!
Thanks so much, Charissa!
