How to make a Virgin Mojito Mocktail :

  1. In the mocktail shaker, gently muddle the mint leaves to release their flavour.
  2. Add lime juice, syrup and your preferred amount of ice. Shake to combine.
  3. Fill your bottle with cold fresh water and insert it into your SodaStream sparkling water maker. Push the button once (light fizz), twice (medium fizz) or thrice (strong fizz) based on your preferred carbonation level.
  4. Decant into a mocktail shaker.
  5. Pour, unstrained, into a highball glass. Dress the glass rim with a lime wheel and some mint leaves.

Additional Notes:

  • Get creative!
    Variants of a virgin mojito are just as easy to concoct: introduce muddled cherries, raspberries, lychees or mango that take just seconds to chop up. Each will add a layer of flavour and a burst of colour to your glass.
  • Make it a ‘kosong’
    Keep this drink 100% healthy by omitting sugar syrup in your glass. If you like, you may also use alternative natural sweeteners such as honey or agave nectar.
  • Fizz it your way
    Club soda, tonic water or Sprite can also be used instead of sparkling water. All three options will help you achieve that same bubbly taste.
