4 Ingredient Lemon Mojito Mocktail

Nothing says summer like lemon and mint! Am I right? This Lemon Mojito Mocktail is the perfect blend of citrus, mint, and bubbly sweetness. The simplicity of ingredients is out of this world and even better, it takes only minutes to stir together. Make it on your next warm day, bridal shower, or family barbecue.

Ingredients Needed (and a few notes):

  1. Mint Leaves. If mint is not in season or you cannot find any, try mint extract (no more than 1/4 teaspoon).
  2. Lemon Juice. I have recently discovered Santa Cruz lemon juice and love it. Alternatively, you can use freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1 lemon for this).
  3. Simple Syrup. Feel free to use homemade or store-bought. I like to make my own with cane sugar, I put details below if you also want to make your own.
  4. Tonic Water. 
  5. Lemon Slices. Because garnishing is a must with a cocktail this gorgeous!
Ingredients needed. Mint leaves, simple syrup, lemon juice, and tonic water.

5 Minute, No Fuss, Lemon Mojito Mocktail

To your glass add the mint leaves and simple syrup. Crush them together well with a muddler to release the mint’s oils. Fill your glass with ice and lemon juice, then top it with tonic water. Stir well and garnish with a slice of lemon. Now it’s ready to sip and enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What if I do not have a muddler tool? It is not a problem! You can use the butt of a wooden spoon or really anything that will allow you to crush the mint oils into the simple syrup.

What is a good alcohol option to add to this Lemon Mojito? Vodka or White Rum would taste great in this. Mojitos typically contain White Rum so if you want to keep it class, I would go with that.

How do I make my own simple syrup? Simple syrup is incredibly easy to make at home. All you need is one cup sugar (granular or cane) and one cup of water, heat it on the stove, and pour it into a glass container. This simple syrup will last up to three months in the refrigerator. The full directions are at the bottom of the recipe card below.
