How To Make a Blackberry Mojito Mocktail

Step 1: In a cocktail shaker or a jug, muddle the fresh blackberries and mint leaves together until they release their juices and you can smell the mint and berries.

Step 2: Cut a lime in half and use a juicer or just squeeze by hand (careful not to drop any seeds) into the muddled blackberries and mint.

Step 3: Add the agave syrup and give it a good stir to combine all the ingredients. If using a shaker, you can also add some ice cubes and give it a good shake (this is my preference).

Step 4: Fill a glass with ice cubes and pour the blackberry mixture over the ice.

Step 5: Top off your glass with sparkling water. Stir gently to mix the ingredients together.

Love a mojito mocktail? I’ve got a few variations for you to check out!

Substitutions and Variations

  • Fruit Variations: Swap blackberries for other berries like raspberries, strawberries, or blueberries for a different berry flavor. For a tropical twist, try mango or pineapple.
  • Herb Substitutions: If you’re not a fan of mint or simply want to try something new, basil or cilantro can offer a unique flavor profile to your mocktail.
  • Citrus Options: While lime is classic in mojitos, lemon or even grapefruit juice can provide a refreshing alternative.
  • Sweetener Alternatives: If agave syrup isn’t available, you can use honey, simple syrup, or maple syrup. To reduce sugar, consider a sugar-free sweetener like stevia or monk fruit syrup.
  • Sparkling Water Varieties: Instead of plain sparkling water, consider flavored seltzer, club soda, or tonic water.
  • Non-Sparkling Substitutes: For a still version, use chilled filtered water or coconut water for a unique twist.
  • Adding Tea: For a caffeinated version, mix in cold brewed tea (like green tea or hibiscus tea) instead of sparkling water for a flavorful and energizing mocktail.
  • Frozen Mocktail: Blend the ingredients with ice to create a slushy version, perfect for hot summer days.
  • Seasonal Twists: Incorporate seasonal fruits or spices to adapt the mocktail to different times of the year, such as adding cinnamon or apple in the fall.
  • Garnish Variations: Experiment with different garnishes like fresh thyme, a cinnamon stick, or edible flowers for a decorative touch that adds to the flavor.
  • Layered Look: Create a layered effect by gently pouring the sparkling water over the back of a spoon to float it above the muddled blackberry and mint mixture for a visually stunning presentation.
