Knowing how to make the base (aka virgin) recipe of classic cocktails is a skill that will earn you titles such as 'kid-friendly hostess' and 'cocktail king.' We've shared many so far, making sugar-free ginger ale, fruit spritzers, and even keto egg nog—all without the sugar and typical carbs (thanks to monk fruit).
Easy Sugar Free Virgin Mojito
The mojito base is pretty simple. Even simpler if your container garden has fresh mint on hand. We turned to a popular sparkling water brand for this recipe, but you can sub in any variation you like... flavored sparkling waters have seen an explosion recently, offering new flavor profiles and several new brands coming onto the scene. It's great to have a variety on hand, whether you just need a break from plain old aqua, or you want to be able to whip up an afternoon delight without a trip to the store.
2 sprigs fresh mint
3 wedges fresh lime
1 can of Lime Sparkling Water
Lakanto Original Liquid Sweetener to taste (or try our simple syrup)
squeeze 3 lime wedges into glass
add 5-6 drops of liquid monkfruit
muddle mint into lime and sweetener in glass
pour lime sparkling soda over top, then stir to meld the flavors
This recipe makes one mojito. We recommend prepping a full lime and a handful of mint sprigs at a time if you're hosting. It's quick to stir up this easy mojito.
