This blackberry mojito is another great way to eat blackberries. It is a non-alcoholic healthy drink that is prepared using fresh fruits. It is also naturally sweetened and a low-calorie drink to enjoy summer.
These days I am on a spree of trying different non-alcoholic drinks. If you are not new to this blog, you can see that in the past few weeks I have shared several drinks recipes. And, I am very happy to tell you that this pineapple strawberry sangria went viral on Yummly last week that brought our blog more than 3000 hits in a single day. It made my day :).
Let’s get back to this mojito recipe.
How to prepare Non-Alcoholic Blackberry Mojito?
I find having drinks prepared using fresh fruits more interesting than eating them alone. You can put your favorite fruits in a drink and enjoy its sip. Making this blackberry mojito is super easy. Just muddle a few blackberries with fresh mint leaves and then combine with fresh orange juice and plain soda. It hardly takes five min. to prepare.
And this refreshing drink is ready that is also ….
- low calorie
How this Blackberry Mojito is healthy?
This blackberry mojito is healthy because
- it is prepared using fresh blackberries. Blackberries are rich in antioxidants, bioflavonoids, and Vitamin C
- it contains fresh orange juice. Oranges are rich in Vitamin C. They also contain diverse phytochemicals such as carotenoids, flavonoids, etc.
- it is naturally sweetened

Non Alcoholic Blackberry Mojito
- 5-6 blackberries
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 4-5 leaves fresh mint
- ½ cup fresh orange juice (preferably chilled)
- 1 cup chilled sparkling water or soda (plain with no sugar)
- 1 teaspoon agave or honey (more or less according to taste)
- ice cubes (for serving)
- In a small bowl muddle blackberries and mint leaves for a few seconds. Transfer the muddled blackberries into a serving glass
- Add a few ice cubes, lime juice, orange juice and sparkling water or soda. Give it a gentle mix and adjust sweetener according to your taste.
- If you do not have muddler use the back of a wooden spatula to muddle the blackberries and mint leaves
- You can also use grape juice instead of orange juice which equally tastes good
- If you want to make an alcoholic version then feel free to use your favorite wine instead of orange juice
The cocktail looks amazing! I already pinned it to my board and now I am sharing it on StumbleUpon as I love it and will definitely make it one day.
