Easy Blueberry Mojito Mocktail

Back in my drinking days, I really loved mojitos. The minty, sugary, citrusy notes always hit the spot. Something I enjoy doing is recreating the flavors I used to enjoy about alcoholic drinks, but without the unwanted buzz and drama.

I’ve already talked about how easy it is to create a lemon mojito mocktail. This blueberry mojito mocktail is a modified version that includes berries!

And like so many mocktails, the customization and personalization options are plentiful. Whatever your vibe or preferences, you can adjust this recipe accordingly.

How To Make A Blueberry Mojito Mocktail

Step 1: In a tall glass or jug, muddle the fresh blueberries and mint leaves together using a muddler or the back of a spoon. This will release the flavors and juices from the blueberries and mint.

Step 2: Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice from one half into the glass. Stir well to combine the blueberries, mint, and lime juice. Add honey.

Step 3: Fill the glass with ice cubes, leaving some space at the top for the sparkling water.

Step 4: Pour the sparkling water into the glass, slowly and carefully, to avoid overflowing. Stir gently to mix all the ingredients together.

Step 5: Garnish the mocktail with lime slices and mint sprigs for an extra touch of freshness and presentation.

Variations and Substitutions:

  • Different Berries or Fruits: Substitute blueberries with other berries like raspberries, strawberries, or blackberries for a different flavor profile. You can also try a mix of berries. For a tropical twist, consider adding pineapple or mango.
  • Herb Variations: While mint is a classic choice, you can experiment with other fresh herbs like basil for a unique twist. A combination of mint and basil can also be yummy.
  • Citrus Substitutions: Instead of lime, try using lemon or a mix of lemon and lime for a different citrus note. Orange juice could also be an interesting addition for a sweeter, less tart flavor.
  • Sparkling Water Alternatives: Replace sparkling water with soda water, club soda, or even a flavored sparkling water (like lemon, lime, or berry flavored) for extra zest without added sugar.
  • Sweetener Options: If honey isn’t your preferred sweetener, you can use agave syrup, maple syrup, or a sugar-free alternative like stevia. Adjust the amount to suit your taste.
  • Try Blueberry Syrup: If you’ve made my Blueberry Lemon Mocktail, you may have some blueberry syrup on hand. Try using this instead of honey for extra blueberry flavor.
  • Cucumber for Freshness: Add thin slices of cucumber for a refreshing and hydrating twist.
  • Add Non-Alcoholic Rum: For an extra punch, try adding 2 oz of non-alcoholic rum.
  • Frozen Take: Use frozen blueberries instead of fresh ones for a slushy-like texture, especially great for hot days.
  • Make it Sparkly: For an extra festive touch, rim the glass with sugar or a mix of sugar and lime zest before pouring the drink.
