Mouthwatering Strawberry Mojito recipe (non-alcoholic)

Strawberry mojito non-alcoholic cocktail

Remember the great heatwave of 2018? When the UK shut down gasping for air, and no one could get off the M20 into a Eurotunnel carriage. Whatever your weather this weekend, this Strawberry Mojito mocktail is guaranteed to quench thirst, impress visitors, and give you one of your five a day. #WIN.

We’re never happy in Britain, are we? It’s too wet, it’s too cold, it’s too windy, and now it’s too hot. I for one am hoping that the heatwave is set to last (although I do have some wellies to photograph for work soon, so I may have to flood the paddling pool).

One way of keeping my kids cool is to provide them with plenty of refreshing drinks. I make them drink lots of water when it’s like this – kids dehydrate quickly, but occasionally on a hot day it’s wonderful to have something a little different.

This virgin strawberry mojito is the perfect blend of citrus tang with cool mint and luscious berry. I guarantee your kids will love it, and you could even add a tiny shot of rum for yourself!

Cocktail Muddler strawberries lime and mint mojito recipe

A cocktail muddler is basically a wooden tool for squashing the juice out of the ingredients, ready to use in the drink, but the end of a rolling pin would do the same job. And technically, you should leave the ‘muddled’ lime and mint in the drink, but for kids it’s probably better just to strain them out.

Put your feet up, and enjoy your summer!

  1. Ooh now this looks amazing. I love a mojito so at the BBQ we are having in a couple of weeks I’m going to be making this for everyone to try.

  2. 5 stars
    This recipe is delicious! I am using it as I am trying to cut down my alcohol intake and I don’t miss the alcohol when it is so tasty without. Definitely prefer leaving the muddled lime and mint in the glass. I am trying to cut down my sugar intake as well so I used 2 tsps of Agave syrup instead of sugar.

    • Oh that’s a great idea too – thanks for the tip. Glad you’re enjoying it! Hope we get the weather back to go with it soon 🙂
