Raspberry Mojito Mocktail
This Raspberry Mojito Mocktail is the perfect drink on hot summer days, when you feel like an extra fancy non-alcoholic beverage, or when you have fresh or frozen raspberries to use up. Made with raspberries, fresh mint, lime juice and Sprite, you’re going to love sipping on this fruity drink any time of year!
This delicious drink is on repeat at my house. It’s so dang good! I have a more delicious Easy Mocktail Recipes with Sprite that you’re going to love! Some of my favorite drinks are my Strawberry Mocktail and my Blueberry Mocktail! They are seriously so yummy!
Why This Recipe Works
- Nonalcoholic cocktail. This raspberry mocktail is made with Sprite (or 7-Up). It doesn’t have any alcohol in it.
- Perfect party drink. This is the perfect drink to serve at your next party because adults and kiddos can enjoy it! It’s such a refreshing drink, too. You’ll go back for glass after glass of this great recipe.
- Best raspberry mocktail. This raspberry mojito recipe is the best! This easy recipe uses simple ingredients, and the raspberries, mint, and lime come together in the perfect balance of flavors.
- Raspberries: If you use frozen raspberries, thaw them before using. If you use fresh berries to make this raspberry mocktail recipe, use at least 3 cups of fresh raspberries.
- Fresh Mint Leaves: You want to use fresh mint leaves so you can extract that fresh mint flavor into the raspberry mocktail mixture.
- Fresh Lime: Use a fresh, juicy lime! The flavor is so much better.
- Sprite or 7-Up: You can use any lemon-lime flavored soda.
- Muddle the raspberries and mint leaves. Add 2 cups thawed frozen raspberries (or fresh raspberries) and 8-10 mint leaves to a large pitcher. Use a muddle to smash the raspberries until they have released their juices and the mint leaves are wilted.
- Add the lime juice and soda. Add the juice of 1 lime and 4 cups Sprite or 7-Up. Stir to combine. Add ice if desired.
- Serve! Pour the virgin raspberry mojito mocktail into glasses and serve with a sprig of mint and lime wedges. Enjoy!
If using thawed (previously frozen) raspberries, the raspberries will most likely be juicy and not as plump. Muddling won’t be a necessary for the raspberries, but you will want to muddle mint leaves into the mixture.
Don’t make it a raspberry puree while muddling — you want some raspberry chunks.
I would wait to add the soda until just before serving, so the carbonation is fresh!
Make Ahead, Storing, and Freezing
You can make the muddled raspberries and mint mixture ahead of time and store than in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 day. Then add the lime juice and Sprite just before serving.
Store in the fridge in the pitcher — just know that the soda will gradually lose its carbonation so it won’t store long. I would drink it within 1 day of making it.
You can freeze the raspberry mint mixture and thaw that, add the lime and Sprite for a slushy raspberry mocktail recipe!
A mocktail is a nonalcoholic cocktail. This non-alcoholic raspberry mojito is made with Sprite instead of alcohol.
Use fresh ingredients! I highly recommend using fresh mint leaves and fresh limes for this raspberry mocktail.
Yes you can! Just be sure to thaw the raspberries before making the recipe. You can also use fresh raspberries.
I would stick to a lemon-lime soda. Ginger ale has a very strong ginger flavor, which I don’t think would pair too well with the mint and lime.

I love this, but could I use sparkling water rather than soda?
