Strawberry Mojito Mocktail
I would throw a story in or more details but I think what I said above really covers it all. Let’s make it!
What is a Mocktail?
A mocktail is short for mock cocktail. Basically they mimic alcoholic cocktails without the alcohol. They are a super fun option and I prefer them over alcoholic cocktails anyways. Not to mention, they are something everyone can enjoy.
To get the similar sensation alcohol gives, I like to use tonic water, bubbly sodas, or mineral water in it’s place. They definitely give a warm tummy tingling feeling!
- Fresh Strawberries. If the strawberries are out of season and not as sweet you may want to add more. You can also add more simple syrup
- Mint Leaves. If mint is not in season or you cannot find it try mint extract (no more than 1/4 teaspoon)
- Simple Syrup. Feel free to use homemade or store-bought, whichever you prefer.
- Sparking Water. My absolute favorite is mint lime from Walmart. I think a second and third best choice would be a lime sparking water and then strawberry.
- Lime Slices. Because garnishing is a must with a cocktail this gorgeous!
Tips for the BEST Strawberry Mojito Mocktail
- Wash Your Strawberries and Mint Leaves. I cannot stress this enough, you do not want little bugs and dirt in your mocktail.
- Don’t skip muddling. The strawberries and mint need to be smooshed together to release all the flavor and fragrance from them. I have a cocktail muddler but the end of a spoon does the trick!
- Choose your level of sweet. I like this Mojito to be a little on the sweeter side but feel free to add more or less simple syrup.
- Experiment with the sparkling water. This will be the dominant flavor in your mojito so you want to love it. I use lime sparking water but you could use strawberry sparkling water, club soda, mineral waters, etc.

Mixing It Up For A Crowd
This Strawberry Mojito Mocktail is the perfect drink to mix up for crowds because it is effortless. You can use either a large pitcher or a punch bowl depending on how much you are making.
For 8-10 servings use 2 pounds of strawberries, 1 large bunch of mint leaves, 1/2 cup simple syrup, 2 liters sparkling water, and 3-4 limes. A few tips: (1) use a food processor to muddle together the strawberries and mint leaves, and (2) freeze ice cubes of sparkling water so you do not add water to your drink with regular ice cubes.
Can I Make This Strawberry Mojito Mocktail Boozy?
Of course! A classic mojito has rum so feel free to add a splash or two. I prefer white rum over spiced rum, but you do you.
