Ingredients & Substitutions
- Passionfruit Juice: Not all grocery stores will carry passionfruit juice, but likely a store close to you will. If you can’t find passionfruit juice in a store, you can easily order some online.
- Mint: Use fresh mint leaves. There are many types of mint leaves. Any type of mint will work, but for the most authentic mojito flavor, use mojito mint. Dried mint will not work for this recipe.
- Lime: Use freshly squeezed lime juice. This adds the brightest and freshest lime flavor. If you don’t have a choice, you can use bottled lime juice instead.
- Simple Syrup: Make your own simple syrup by heating equal portions of water and granulated sugar on a saucepan until the sugar has completely dissolved. Or, use a premade storebought simple syrup. As a substitute, you can use agave syrup.
- Club Soda: Club soda adds a bit of fizz without overpowering the passionfruit flavor. You can use sparkling water instead. Tonic water and Sprite also work, but they will both slightly alter the taste since neither of them have a neutral flavor.
Here is the equipment you will need to make the passionfruit mojito mocktail:
- A muddler to muddle the mint and lime together.
- A highball glass to serve the mocktail in. Or, a large pitcher if you are making a batch for a group.
Step By Step Instructions
Step 1: Using a muddler, gently muddle the mint leaves, lime and simple syrup, pressing to release the mint oils.
Step 2: Add in a handful of ice. Top with the passionfruit juice and the club soda.
