Ingredient Notes

Strawberry Mocktail ingredients on a white background: limes, strawberries, mint, and Sprite or 7 UP.
  • Strawberries: Be sure to wash and de-stem the strawberries. If you are looking for a raspberry option, check out my raspberry mojito mocktail recipe
  • Limes: You are welcome to use store-bought lime juice. I like the freshly squeezed lime juice because I like a little bit of the pulp and because I feel like the flavor is a bit punchier. 
  • Mint Leaves: I highly, highly recommend fresh mint. You really don’t want dried herbs in drinks. Plus, the fresh mint leaves will penetrate the strawberry mojito mocktail better. 
  • Sprite or 7-UP: Feel free to use Sprite or 7-UP. If you use a different soda (like Ginger Ale), you may need to adjust the ratio of strawberries/limes. With sodas that are less sweet, it may help to add a bit of sugar as well.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Smash the strawberries and mint. Add the de-stemmed strawberries and mint leaves to a pitcher. Using a muddle, or the back of a wooden spoon, muddle the fruit and leaves. You want to smash those strawberries really well! Muddling is all about extracting the juices from the fruit and mint leaves.
  2. Add the lime juice. Once you get the strawberries and mint leaves muddled to perfection, add the lime juice. 
  3. Add the soda. Add the Sprite to the pitcher and stir everything together. Add crushed ice to your glasses and pour the virgin strawberry lime mojito into each glass.

Recipe Tips

When muddling the mint leaves, don’t be too aggressive. You want to extract their juices well, but you don’t want the mint leaves to tear and shred to pieces. It’s a balance.

If you don’t want to use Sprite, use Ginger Ale or 7 UP. I used Sprite because to me it tastes sweeter. If you use something besides Sprite, just note you might want to add a couple tablespoons of sugar to the pitcher. If you taste the drink as you go, you can easily adapt it to your taste buds.

I only added 2 1/2 cups of Sprite because it kept each of the flavors balanced. If you’d like to make the flavors more subtle, add 3-4 cups of Sprite. This will increase the number of strawberry mocktail servings you’ll get. 

If you don’t like tart drinks, add 1/8 cup of lime juice. If you like a tarter drink add 1/4 cup lime juice. I like tart drinks so I added 1/4 cup lime juice.

Make Ahead, Storing, and Freezing

Store any of the virgin strawberry mojito in the fridge for 3-4 days. The longer it’s in the fridge, the less fizzy the drink will be. 

If you want leftovers, I recommend making extra of the strawberry, mint, and lime muddled mixture and storing that in the fridge in an airtight container and adding the Sprite as you serve it.

You can freeze the strawberry, mint, and lime mixture in an airtight container for 2-3 months. Thaw and add soda. I do this with a lot of my drink recipes! It makes it much easier to prep for parties ahead of time. 

Recipe FAQs

Can I use any type of fruit in this mocktail recipe?

Technically, yes! However, I would use a fruit that would pair well with lime and mint. If you want to use peaches, I would recommend my peach drink recipe. I also have a delicious raspberry drink recipe you can try as well.  

What is a mocktail?

A mocktail is the nonalcoholic version of a cocktail. 

What soda is used in mocktails?

You can pretty much use your favorite neutral-flavored soda. These include Sprite, 7-UP, Ginger Ale, Fresca, etc. Clear sodas are the best option so the colors of the mocktail come through. 

Do mojitos have alcohol?

Yes. Mojitos are made with alcohol, but a mojito mocktail is a non alcoholic beverage.

Notes

*I only added 2 1/2 cups of Sprite because it kept each of the flavors balanced. If you’d like to make the flavors more subtle, add 3-4 cups of Sprite. This will increase the number of mojito servings as well. 
**feel free to add 1/4 cup of lime juice for a stronger lime flavor.
***I didn’t add sugar to this drink because I used Sprite, which is pretty sweet already. If using Ginger Ale you may want to add a few tablespoons of sugar to sweeten the drink. Taste as you go to adjust to your liking.
