Mojito Mocktail

These minty mojito mocktails are ideal for a luncheon, brunch, baby shower, or pool party—or any other occasion where a cold, refreshing beverage is desired. 

INGREDIENTS

– ¾ cup fresh lime juice (from 6 limes) – ¾ cup simple syrup (see Tip) – ½ cup packed fresh mint leave – 2 (2-inch) strips lime zest – 4 cups ice cube – 2 cups sparkling water – Lime slices and mint sprigs, for garnish

PROCESS

In a pitcher, combine lime juice, simple syrup, mint leaves, and lime zest. Using the handle of a large wooden spoon, softly compress the mint and zest.   

STEP 1

Stir in the ice cubes and sparkling water until thoroughly combined. Divide between four glasses and garnish with lime slices and mint sprigs, if preferred.  

STEP 2

To make your own simple syrup, boil 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a medium pot, stirring regularly to dissolve the sugar. Allow it cool for 30 minutes before storing in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Simple syrup can be kept in the fridge, covered, for up to 6 months.
