How to Make Blackberry Mocktails
Blackberry mocktails are a delicious way to serve a non-alcoholic drink with refreshing flavors and a nice presentation.
No matter why you chose to skip the alcohol, you deserve to have a drink that is delicious. That’s why instead of just replacing alcohol with extra soda, I’ve found an ingredient that is ideal in many fruity drink recipes to replace white rum, vodka or gin: coconut water!
Coconut water provides a slightly sweet flavor and creates a delicious drink without solely relying on soda to fill the glass.
If you prefer an all-soda mocktail recipe, that’s fine too, but I love the flavor coconut water brings to this blackberry mocktail recipe.
Blackberry Mojito (Adding Mint + Lime)
Mojitos are my absolute favorite drink because there’s no better combo than mint and lime in my opinion. Many people create fruity versions of mojitos, and I think it’s time for a non-alcoholic version of a blackberry mojito!
This is a simple recipe but requires you to muddle the blackberries and mint. I recommend crushing blackberries in the glass first, then adding mint and gently muddling to release that delicious and refreshing flavor.
Blackberry Mojito Mocktail Ingredients
To make this tasty drink, you’ll need:
- Fresh lime juice
- Frozen pink lemonade concentrate
- Fresh blackberries (frozen works too, just thaw them first)
- Fresh mint leaves
- Coconut water
- Club soda (or soda of choice; lemon-lime soda or tonic water works well)
- Ice cubes
Fresh or frozen blackberries work, but fresh lime juice and mint are essential for this recipe.
You may wonder what I mean by frozen pink lemonade concentrate; it’s the frozen drink concentrate found in tins in the freezer section. Let it thaw slightly before using in this recipe.
This ingredient is meant to add sweetness to the drink. If you use a sweet/ sugary soda, you may not need the extra sugar from the lemonade concentrate. It does, however, provide a nice flavor and I think it’s needed for a tasty drink if you use club soda or soda water.
