Nojito Recipe

Treat yourself to a nojito- a non-alcoholic mojito! Use agave or make this sugar-free as well. Nojitos are a great alternative to lemonade in the summer and perfect for pregnant or nursing moms too. It’s always a good idea to have a quality mocktail on hand.

If you follow along with In Katrina’s Kitchen on Instagram you saw that I had the chance to go on a 7 day Eastern Caribbean Cruise on the Regal Princess. It was a wonderfully relaxing press trip and I cannot wait to tell you more about it. I tried not to Instagram ALL THE THINGS but man, everything is so so gorgeous down there!

Non-alcoholic Nojito Recipe with agave

My husband and I enjoyed a nojito (or three!) every afternoon so I knew I wanted to recreate them at home. Personally I love virgin cocktails so I can save calories for a delicious glass of wine (or three!) with dinner. With lots of fresh mint, lemon, and lime you’ll never miss the rum. Good seltzer water and a splash of agave (or sugar) takes these right over the top.

Non-alcoholic Nojito Recipe

Try swapping out lemonade for nojitos this summer when your mint crop is abundant. I know my husband and I will be sipping on these and day dreaming about our time in the Caribbean! That is, until I get hit in the face with a soccer ball or when my little guy hands me a jar full of bugs.

    Looooving these! They look so refreshing and would be perfect for a backyard party. Or a cruise ship, but I’ll have to settle for my backyard. 🙂

    Katrina, this Nojito looks positively mouthwatering! I love the idea of using lemonade in the warmer months, and I cannot get over the bright bursts of lime and mint. Pinning!

    This drink is so pretty and it does sound refreshing! Sometimes you did need to relax with a tall glass of something bubbly that isn’t alcohol. Love this.

    I love this idea, Katrina. I mean, I drink the Mojitos for the mint and lime anyway!
