I love mojitos, but when I’m looking for a non-alcoholic beverage, this is great! With tons of mint in my garden, I love making these, especially on a hot day. A great alternative to fresh lemonade. I drank a lot of these when I was pregnant!

  1. Love these… I’ve made them like this (with mojito mix instead of muddling the mint and lime juice) and call it a fauxito!

  2. Gina, this is exactly what I need! I have followed your blog for years and just stumbled across this recipe today.  I am 5 months pregnant and can’t wait to try this to help beat the summer heat! 🙂

  3. I made a couple of these tonight for my boyfriend and I. They were so tasty!!! I wish I would have seen the last two comments here about adding strawberries to the mix. I will definitely try that next time!

  4. This is a great recipe! I've been making these every day since I first read about them. Today I added a big, red strawberry, muddled along with the mint. Great addition to original recipe. Try it!

  5. I LOVE your site!!! I've already made a few of your recipes and many more are on my list to make. My fav version of a mojito is to add 2 jumbo strawberries into the mix. Found recipe in Cosmo mag few years ago I think. Was called See you in September!

  6. I will be stocking up on limes this summer since I already have plenty of mint from the garden. This drink is light, refreshing and guilt-free.

  7. I LOVE Mojitos and can't wait to try this! I also tried something called a Cucumber Fizz while on vacation in Seattle… found a recipe for it… very fresh and great for a hot summer day! Just muddle 2 large basil leaves, 4 mint leaves, 3 small slices of cucumber, 1 tbsp of fresh lime juice and mix with sprite zero… mmmmm….
