Mango Mojito Mocktail | Simple Summer Recipe

I live in Southwest Florida, so the summer heat can be extra balmy on my side of the world. It’s mocktail season year-round for me, but I especially love a fizzy, cool combination when the months are intolerably hot.

Enter the mango mojito mocktail, a variation of the traditional mojito mocktail perfect for all this heat!

Because I can’t be bothered with a bunch of complicated ingredients, this one is as simple as you want it to be.

What’s Great About This Mango Mojito Mocktail?

This bad boy is made from four simple ingredients, is the perfect mix of sweet and tangy, and can be thrown together in under five minutes.

Plus it’s versatile and customizable (more on that in a minute), so you can truly make it your own.

Mango Mojito Mocktail Ingredients:

The basic ingredients you’ll need for this one are the following:

  • Mango nectar (can or carton)
  • Club soda
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Fresh limes

That’s it. Four basic ingredients.

A few notes here. You want mango nectar and not juice. Nectar is thicker and more concentrated in flavor. Mango juice will likely give you a more diluted drink.

You can also fresh mango and puree it in a blender with a little water or coconut water (if you’re feeling fancy) until it is the consistency of a thin smoothie.

If club soda is not your thing, you can substitute it with anything fizzy. The primary purpose of the club soda is to give your mocktail a little punch so it’s not flat like juice.

How To Make a Mango Mojito Mocktail

In a tall glass, add 6-8 fresh mint leaves and the juice of one lime. Use a muddler or the back of a spoon to lightly muddle these ingredients together.

Next, add ice cubes to the glass and fill 3/4 of the cup.

Finally, add your mango nectar. Fill until the cup is about halfway full. Then, top it off with the clubs soda.

Use a long bar spoon (or whatever you have) to mix it together gently. Garnish with a lime wedge and additional fresh mint leaves (if you want).

Voila!

That’s it.

Now, what if you want to mix it up a little bit? I got you!

Alternative Sweeteners

If you’re looking to add a touch more sweetness to your mocktail, consider adding another sweetener to your mocktail.

A friendly warning, though – mango is very sweet, so don’t go overboard with the added sweeteners.

Honey, agave syrup, or simple syrup can each bring their unique flavor profiles and sweetness levels to the drink.

Honey adds a rich, floral note, while agave syrup offers a lighter, slightly caramel-like sweetness. Simple syrup, which is just sugar dissolved in water, will sweeten the drink without altering its flavor.

Additionally, you can muddle a teaspoon of sugar into the bottom of the glass with the mint and lime, like they do in traditional mocktails. It gives the drink a little grittiness which some people like.

Different Fruits

Mango is one of many fruits that work well in a drink like this. Feel free to swap out or add your favorite!

Pineapple or peach make excellent substitutes or additions to the mango, each bringing its own distinct flavor. Pineapple adds a tangy, tropical zing, while peach offers a delicate, sweet softness.

You can either blend these fruits into a puree or use their juices to mix with the existing ingredients. It honestly depends on how thick you like your mojito mocktail. If you like a thicker consistency, go with a puree. If you like a thinner consistency, use juice.

Switch Up The Herbs

Mint is a classic choice for mojitos, but don’t be afraid to experiment with other herbs to give your mocktail a unique spin.

You can experiment with basil or cilantro as well.

Add Some Spice

For those who enjoy a bit of heat, adding some spice can elevate your mocktail to a new level.

Add a few chopped jalapenos (fresh, not jarred), or rim your glass with some Tajín.

Start with a small amount and adjust to your taste so you don’t overpower the flavors of your mojito. If you quit drinking and miss the burn of alcohol, this is an excellent way to make a drink with a kick to it.
