Raspberry and Passion Fruit Virgin Mojito

This fun and fruity mocktail recipe is a twist on the classic mojito. It is perfect for long summer days.

Mocktails

A few things you should know about me: I have a sweet tooth, I love fizzy drinks and I am partial to a cocktail when the sun comes out. But, I don’t deal particularly well in the heat. Unless, I’m wearing something floaty, sat next to a swimming pool and sipping on a mojito.

We’ve been having a heatwave now for well over two weeks and it doesn’t look like it is going anywhere. The problem is I can’t keep coming home, sticking my feet in my paddling pool and making yet another cocktail. So instead, I’ve started turning my hand to virgin cocktails – or “mocktails”.


Mocktails are just cocktails without the booze. They have all of the flavour but none of the side effects of alcohol! Leaving out the booze also makes them lighter in terms of calories if that’s something you’re also worried about.

Feeling fruity

Fruity cocktails have always been my favourite. Luckily for me, I have berries that grow in my back garden and so in the summer there’s always fruit on hand. Raspberries were the starting point for this particular mocktail. We also grow mint in our kitchen garden, mainly for classic mojitos but it was the obvious choice for this recipe too.

A fruity mojito seemed like the best idea. Instead of using sweet rum I have used passion fruit! I scooped out the bright yellow pulp and muddled it with the fresh raspberries. This is definitely served best as a long drink so muddle it in a tall glass. Add a good handful of ice cubes and some fresh mint was added to the glass. Then top it off with some soda water. Last but not least, garnish with a few mint leaves and a few more raspberries.

The result? A Raspberry and Passion Fruit virgin Mojito, which tasted like sunshine and cooled me down perfectly.

Make it boozy

Of course if you wanted to make this boozy you could just add 25mls (1 shot) of Barcadi! Alternatively, a fruity vodka or gin would also work well.
