What Is a Virgin Mojito Mocktail?

Have you ever had a mojito? It’s an alcoholic cocktail made with fresh mint, lime juice, club soda, and rum. A virgin mojito is almost exactly the same drink, minus the rum. This is because a “virgin” drink is known as a mocktail— a cocktail that’s made without the alcoholic component.

So today’s recipe for a virgin mojito mocktail is made almost exactly like a mojito, except for the rum. The exact instructions are below!

How to Make a Virgin Mojito Mocktail

Surely there’s no such thing as a virgin mojito mocktail, right? Well, that’s actually wrong! Sometimes you need all the fun of a cocktail, but want to keep it alcohol-free, mocktail-style (aka virgin). So I’m gonna show you how to live it up with today’s mojito mocktail!

First, add fresh mint and simple syrup to a highball glass (or a mason jar, as I’ve done in these pics!).

Grab a muddler from a cocktail set like this one, and lightly muddle the mint and syrup. Be sure not to smash the heck out of the mint. Think of it as just lightly massaging the mint oils out of the leaves, not pulverizing it.

Now, add lime juice and ice. Gently stir these ingredients together to mix it.

Add ice to that glass.

Pour club soda to the top of the glass. Then, stir and scoop simultaneously to ensure fresh mint and simple syrup are spread evenly throughout the glass.

Garnish your mocktail with a mint sprig and a lime wheel. That’s it! Now, sip and enjoy your delicious virgin mojito recipe!
