One of the world's most popular rum cocktails, the Mojito can be traced back to Cuba in the 16th century, although it didn't appear in a cocktail book until the 1930s. Since then it has spawned countless variations (including our own non-alcoholic Garden Mojito featuring Seedlip) but the classic formula of rum, mint, lime, and sugar remains in fashion for a reason.
Unfussy and delicious, the Mojito is an easy drinker that's hard to resist. And if you're looking for low-calorie cocktails? At 30 calories it's hard to beat this non-alcoholic Mojito. A couple of dashes of our Orange bitters put this mocktail recipe over the top.
Mojito (Non-Alcoholic Cocktail)
Non-Alcoholic Cocktail / Low-Alcohol / Zero Proof / Mocktail Recipes
2 ounces non-alcoholic white rum
8 mint leaves
½ ounce simple syrup
¾ ounce fresh lime juice
2 full droppers All The Bitter Orange bitters
3-4 ounces club soda (to top)
Gently muddle mint in a shaker with simple syrup.
Add rum, lime juice, and bitters, and shake with ice until chilled.
Double strain through a mesh sieve into a highball glass with fresh ice, and top with club soda.
Garnish with a fresh mint sprig and lime wheels.
Unaged, white rum is the classic choice for a mojito. For a non-alcoholic mojito, we love Lyre's White Cane Spirit.
MAKE IT MINDFULLY LOW ALCOHOL
Simply split the spirit portion with 1 ounce of alcoholic rum and 1 ounce of a non-alcoholic rum alternative for a bright, refreshing, low-ABV sipper you can enjoy all day long.
