Mocktail- Cranberry Mojito- non alcoholic cocktail

A simple mocktail for the holiday season, it’s Cranberry Mojito’s for all. Non-alcoholic mojito cocktails that is.

Non-alcoholic and incredibly simple to make by gathering quality ingredients- organic cranberries, organic limes, organic mint-lucky for me I still have a vibrant plant outside.
Combining these with a bit of organic Cane Sugar syrup from Hey Shuga! to stand in for the rum,
and a big splash of sparkling mineral water.
This is one of my favorites, so light and clear.
The cranberries give just enough tartness and a bit of color too.

Mocktail- Cranberry Mojito
 
Author: 
For all those times when you want a mock cocktail with flair
Ingredients
  • ¼ organic lime
  • 10 mint leaves
  • 10 cranberries whole
  • 1 tablespoon Hey Shuga cane syrup or 2 teaspoons organic cane sugar and 1 teaspoon water (boiled together)
  • ice cubes to fill the glass
  • sparkling mineral water
Instructions
  1. Muddle the cranberries, mint and lime in a cup or cocktail shaker.
  2. Pour over ice in the glass.
  3. Fill glass with sparkling mineral water.
Notes
Muddle is a funny term for smushing the fruit and herbs, allowing their essential oils to be released. If you have a cocktail shaker, then feel free to use that. I used a coffee cup with the back end of a butter knife to do this one. The all organic cane sugar syrup from Hey Shuga! gives this mocktail a round full flavor. You could make your own of course but it is a lovely addition to a home bar.

    You’ve just reminded me how good mock mojitos are! I was on a kick, drinking them for a while last year before I was pregnant. Now with the holidays here, and a baby on board, I will definitely have to try some cranberry ones :)
