Blueberry Mojito Mocktail: Ingredient Options
There are several ingredient options to use in your blue mojito mocktails.
First, the recipe calls for frozen blueberries because they provide a stronger purple color compared to fresh blueberries. Fresh blueberries can be used if you like, but the final drink may not be as colorful!
Also, I use a frozen pink lemonade concentrate in these blueberry mocktails. This ingredient adds sweetness and flavor! There’s an option to substitute for 1-2 teaspoons of a liquid sweetener (like agave syrup), but I love the flavor pink lemonade brings.
Fresh lime juice and fresh mint are a must for me as they’re the two main flavors needed to create a mojito.
Lastly, I use a special ingredient, coconut water, to replace alcohol in mocktail recipes.
Coconut water brings a nice, simple but sweet flavor and is a great replacement for white rum, gin or vodka if you want to create a mocktail. Most non-alcoholic blueberry mojito recipes simply replace the alcohol with extra soda, but I prefer coconut water!
How to Make a Blue Mojito Mocktail
As noted above, most of the beautiful blue-purple color comes from the frozen blueberries. To maximize color, let the frozen blueberries thaw for a few minutes before making this drink!
To make a blue mojito mocktail you need:
- Fresh lime juice
- Fresh mint leaves
- Frozen blueberries
- Frozen pink lemonade concentrate (or other liquid sweetener)
- Coconut water
- Club soda (or soda of choice; tonic water or lemon-lime soda work well)
- Ice cubes
Simply muddle the first 4 ingredients together by gently pressing mint leaves while stirring. Be careful to try and not tear the mint leaves apart.
You can use any soda you like! Keep in mind that if you use a sweet soda, you may want less of the pink lemonade concentrate.
Frozen pink lemonade concentrate is literally the tin of drink mix in the freezer section that you’d normally add water to when making pink lemonade! This is a tasty ingredient for lots of different mocktail recipes and one that kids (and adults) tend to like.
