4. Lime – if possible, use fresh lime and squeeze the juice out. The pulp from the lime makes the difference and gives a fresh tangy taste to the drink. However, if you are stretched for time, store-bought lime juice (ready-made in a bottle) is fine too.

5. Sprite or 7 up – Keep it in the fridge before using it for a more chilled drink. 

Step-by-Step Instructions

1. First, destem the strawberries. Once destemmed, wash the strawberries and start cutting them. If the strawberries are small, cut them into half, otherwise cut the bigger ones into quarters.

2. Put the cut strawberries and blueberries (optional) at the bottom of the glass (or a pitcher/jug).

3. Add in the fresh mint leaves.

4. Next, is the muddling process. Use the muddler (or the back of a spoon if you don’t have a muddler) and gently start crushing the berries and mint leaves by pressing and twisting. The muddling process helps to release the flavor of the strawberries and mint.

Notes

  • If you would like to make the virgin strawberry mojito drink in a bigger batch, use the pitcher/jug instead of a glass.
  • Add the ice in the glass instead of the pitcher when serving to avoid diluting the entire drink. Then, pour the mixture prepared in the pitcher into the glass.

Tips And Tricks For Virgin Strawberry Mojito Recipe

  • Be gentle during the muddling process to avoid leaves tearing and ending up in small pieces when you drink it. The shredded piece would not leave a good taste in the mouth.
  • If you don’t own a muddler, fret not! You can also use the back of a wooden spoon.
  • For serving, you may use any normal glass but if you want to spice it up, pour the drink into a highball glass for the extra “class”.
  • To prepare early, you can make the muddled ingredient (strawberry, mint and lime) and store it in an airtight container about 2-3 days earlier in the fridge before your party. Refrain from adding Sprite as that would make the drink less fizzy as the days go by.
  • For longer-lasting mixtures, you may also freeze it as the mixture can last for about 2 months. Just remember to thaw the mixture, followed by the sprite and garnishing of fresh mint leaves and sliced limes. 
  • Lime juice slows down the oxidation process therefore mixing lime juice with mint together when muddling helps to slow down the mint leaves from turning brown.
  • To serve a chilled virgin mojito strawberry, keep the Sprite or any fizzy drink being used for this mocktail in the fridge.
  • Add Sprite when you are ready to drink/ ready to serve to avoid losing the fizz and bubbles.  
  • Use fresh blocks of ice to avoid your drink from being diluted too easily. 
  • Do thaw the frozen strawberries (if any) by running them through water.

Substitutes For The Virgin Strawberry Mojito Recipe

  • Ran out of Sprite? Opt for other substitutes such as club soda, diet lemonade, Seltzer or Italian sparkling water. These are options that are less sweeter therefore you may also want to add a little bit of sugar syrup or maple syrup otherwise you can skip this step.
  • No more fresh limes? Just buy the ready-made lime juice from the store. 
  • Replace fresh mint leaves with fresh basil leaves. 
  • The ingredients influence the tangy and sweet mocktail taste. If you want a more subtle taste, you may want to adjust the lime and strawberry quantity
  • If you can’t get hold of fresh strawberries, the frozen ones work well too. 

Variations To The Virgin Strawberry Mojito Recipe

  • Variety of fruits  – Instead of using strawberries, you can also use fresh or frozen blueberries or raspberries for this mojito drink. Alternatively, you may also use them all together in the drink. It is up to your liking.
  • More refreshing – Cucumbers are amazing for our health.  Add the cucumber to the mixture and muddle it together. The best part, cucumbers go well with lime and mint.
