Why This Recipe Works
- Well-balanced- There is an art to crafting a really good mocktail. It is not merely the cocktail sans alcohol, this one has the perfect balance of flavors.
- Fancy- Everyone loves a fun drink in a fun glass.
- Easy to Make-Simple to prepare, but they look like they take real effort!
- Pineapple- Fresh pineapple offers the best flavor!
- Strawberries- Freshly picked or from the local farmers' market is my preference (when in season, of course). You can substitute with frozen strawberries if there are no fresh berries insight. Just be sure to thaw them first.
- Mint Leaves- You can find bunches of mint leaves in the produce section. Or, if you grow it, it multiplies like crazy.
- Lime- Fresh squeezed is best, I don't recommend bottled.
- Sugar- You can substitute honey, simple syrup, or a sugar substitute like Truvia, or Swerve if you prefer. Make sure to check a conversion chart if subbing.
- Rum Extract- optional, but adds a little rum flavor.
- Sparkling Water- I make my own with a Sodastream, but store-bought sparkling water is fine too. Use unflavored water.
How to Make Strawberry Pineapple Mojitos
This is an overview of the instructions, be sure to see the recipe card for all the details.
- Place chunks of pineapple, sliced strawberries, and mint leaves in the glass. Squeeze the fresh lime wedge and toss the lime in the glass. Add sugar.
- Muddle use a muddler to press on the fruit in the glass until it is broken down and have released juices. If you don't have a muddle, use the handle end of a wooden spoon.
- Add the ice and the rum extract if using. Top the glass off with sparkling water.
- Finally, garnish the glasses with mint leaves, lime wedges, strawberries, or a pineapple wedge for each.
Could you get any fancier? I think not!
- Instead of single servings, you can easily batch this drink to serve at a gathering of friends and family. In the recipe card, change the number of servings (slider bar) and make it in a pitcher instead.
- If you're not partial to the rum flavor of the mocktail, you can leave the rum extract out.
- To make it a cocktail, use 1 ½ ounces of white rum in place of the rum extract.
- If you don't have a muddler, the handle of a wooden spoon works just as well.
- Fresh fruit works best, but you can use frozen if needed. Thaw them first. After thawing they are a softer consistency and a little more watery. Still tasty!
Frequently Asked Questions
A mocktail is a cocktail without alcohol-- but it requires a delicate balance. Recipes contain delicious flavors such as fruit juice, tea, kombucha, sodas, or infused waters.
That is a hard question. My Easy Mocktail Recipes are all so tasty! So, I suppose it depends on the season. I adore mojitos in the summertime. And when the weather cools, I crave a Gingersnap Steamer. But honestly, I like them all!
If you are the designated driver for a fun evening out, this is a great way to stay involved and stay sober. Then "fancy drinks" are fun for the whole family- no one feels left out. And of course, there are those that prefer not to drink. Easy mocktails are good for anyone.
Sure you can, but it will make a sweeter drink. You may want to leave the sugar out.
Storing and Freezing the Mojito Mocktail Recipe
This recipe is best served fresh and immediately. But here is an idea if you simply must make it ahead.
Make-ahead idea: Make the muddled mixture and place servings in an ice cube tray and freeze. Then the next time you want a cool and fruity beverage, you can take out a cube, place it in the glass and add the sparkling water! As it melts the flavor is released.
