virgin mojitos in glasses

Lime-Mint Spritzers


This virgin mojito is tart and sweet. Lime and mint come together in a sparkly beverage perfect for special occasions or warm summer afternoons.


810 large mint leaves

1/2 cup sugar (you can add more if necessary)

3/4 cup fresh lime juice (about 7 small, juicy limes)

1 24-ounce bottle of sparkling water (like Perrier)


  1. Finely chop the mint leaves. Place the chopped mint leaves in a pitcher and press them with the back of a spoon to release the oils. Add the sugar and press the mint leaves and sugar together with the back of a spoon- or the handle of a large wooden spoon. Add the lime juice and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved and no longer grainy.
  2. Right before serving, add the sparkling water and serve immediately over ice. Garnish with lime slices and mint leaves.


Not a fan of mint? Leaving it out of this recipe will give you a nice sparkling limeade!
