Mojito Mocktail Recipe

Did you know we’ve been sharing mocktail recipes for the last 9 years? They are one of our favorite recipes to share; we even have a book featuring them! I think a mojito mocktail might top the list for my all time favorite mocktail recipes. (Caitlin made pitchers of it for my 40th birthday party!) I just love the refreshing taste of lime and mint together! I was recently looking up mojito recipes on our blog and realized while we’ve shared lots of different kinds of mojito recipes, we’ve never shared just a plain old mojito mocktail!

Since I really love the flavor of lime and mint, I decided that instead of just sugar in this mocktail or a plain simple syrup, I would try a lime mint simple syrup to really enhance that flavor! It’s really good and can be added to lots of different drinks, sparkling water or lemonade! You can of course just use granulated sugar or even a plain simple syrup if you’re looking to keep things simple.

Besides for being delicious, I love how easy mojito mocktails are to throw together. Only a few ingredients are needed!
