Non Alcoholic Mojito

Non Alcoholic Mojito - Fab Fod 4 All

When thebar asked me if I’d like to re-create one of their many awesome cocktail ideas to celebrate Valentine’s Day, I made a beeline for this Non Alcoholic Mojito. Nothing says “I love you” more than making the effort to create something special. So if your loved one is driving over or is teetotal then I think this is the perfect special drink to start the evening. With a mixture of mint leaves, apple juice, lime juice, elderflower cordial and soda water this Non Alcoholic Mojito is totally delicious and oh so elegant!

Non Alcoholic Mojito - Fab Fod 4 AllIf you’ve never made a cocktail before there are a few pieces of equipment that will come in really handy:
– A muddler, looks a bit like a mini truncheon and used for gently crushing the mint leaves.
– A jigger – a very small double ended measuring beaker.
– A cocktail spoon – a long spoon needed to stir your cocktail.
– A powerful blender/ice crushing attachment for stick blender needed for making your own crushed ice.

I do hope you give this simple but effective Non Alcoholic Mojito a go this Valentine’s Day and if one of you is able to have a drink well then you could always make an actual Mojito to go alongside and neither of you will feel left out as you’ll both be drinking 2 very sophisticated looking drinks:-)

    Sounds like the cocktail for me – cool and smooth.

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Maya:-)

  2. AG

    Do you think this would freeze to make an ice lolly? I’ll be trying it at our next barbecue 🙂

    1. Camilla

      I’ve never frozen soda water before so not sure I’m afraid!

  3. Margot

    That sounds very good to me. We often crave mojito but don’t want really to drink alcohol… and this is perfect solution!

    1. Camilla

      It really is Margot, hope you give it a go:-)

  4. Debra @ Bowl Me Over

    looks so bright and refreshing!

  7. Charlie @ The Kitchen Shed

    We are big non alcoholic mojito fans, they always make an appearance at Christmas (and for the eurovision song contest!) but we cheat and use a pre make mix with ginger beer…. SUGAR OVERLOAD! I shall definitely have to give this a go.

    1. Camilla

      Great Charlie – glad to meet another Eurovision fan too:-)

  8. Nayna Kanabar (@citrusspiceuk)

    1. Camilla

      Thank Nayna, it really is lush:-)

  9. Patty Haxton Anderson

    Is elderflower something only sold in the UK? Your photos are gorgeous by the way.

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Patty:-) That’s a good question, which I’m afraid I can’t answer but I do know we have elderflower trees over here and people often make their own cordial. I’ve never seen an elderflower tree though unfortunately:-(

  10. Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy

    I do love a good mojito. It’s my favourite cocktail on a nice sunny day sitting outside in the garden.

    1. Camilla

      I’d never had one but I’m hooked now:-)

  13. Michele

    I happen to have The elderflower cordial that I wasn’t sure what to make with it? (I’m not even sure where it came from?). Now I need to go get the apple juice. This looks so refreshing!

    1. Camilla

      Great Michele, enjoy:-)

  14. Simon

    Good alternative! I’ve never seen it with apple juice but I’m sure it will be delicious! Thanks for sharing

    1. Camilla

      Thanks Jenn:-)

  18. Boastful Food

    I love mojitos and this one sounds great! Where can I find Elderflower cordial? I’ve heard of people making elderflower tinctures for drinks. Is this similar? Thanks for sharing such a refreshing and non-alcoholic recipe!

    1. Camilla

      Just look in the squash aisle of your supermarket and it should be there;-)

    Oh that looks refreshing!

    1. Camilla

      Thank you Dorothy:-)

  20. Helen at Casa Costello

    This looks and sounds incredible – I bet we wouldn’t even miss the alcohol. I’m driving so much at the moment that I rarely get chance to drink so this sounds perfect. Thanks so much for sharing my mocktail too.

    1. Camilla

      I know Helen, I’m usually driving so would love to be served this:-)

  24. Becca @ Amuse Your Bouche

    I love the idea of making something special, even if it doesn’t contain alcohol – I usually just grab a glass of water, but it’s nice to try something different every now and then 🙂 This looks so yummy!
