Sparkling Mojito Mocktail Juice


A quick impromptu recipe today. I was going be sharing a rather stodgy desert but instead came up with a refreshing juice to match the wonderful sunshine. Of course it's important to stay hydrated in the heat and whilst I'm as partial to a summer cocktail or glass of Pimm's as the next person, folk start to talk if you have them for breakfast! As an alternative today I used my Optimum 600 Cold Press Juicer to make a Sparkling Mojito Mocktail. All the flavours of the real thing but none of the alcohol and definitely counts towards your 5 a day. Cheers!


Sparkling Mojito Mocktail Juice
1 Green Apple
1/2 Cucumber
1 Pear
1 Lime, peeled but leave the pith on
Small handful fresh Mint (use more or less to taste)
Sparkling water
Ice

Juice the apple, cucumber, pear, lime and mint.
Once done pour over ice, top up with sparkling mineral water, garnish and enjoy!

(If the sun is over the yardarm feel free to add a shot of white rum. Your boozy green juice secret is safe with me)

  1. Mmm, I'm glad you posted this instead of a stodgy dessert, especially as I'm right this second outside enjoying the sunshine!

    1. It just seemed totally wrong to post a hot pudding recipe on a scorching hot day. Something refreshing was definitely a better option. With the British weather I'm sure we'll be back on stodgy deserts before too long!

  2. This sounds just perfect for today. I do so much driving that I need to have a stock selection of mocktails to fall back on in the summer. Thanks for including my mocktail recipes too.

    1. It can get a wee bit boring when you are the designated driver. Mocktails make being alcohol free much more tempting.

  4. This looks yummy, I love cucumber and apple as a combo and my mum just asked me if I wanted her juicer so this will be something to try when I pick it up next week!

    1. Hope you manage to give it a try when you get your hand me down juicer. If you get smitten by the juicing bug I'd definitely recommend that you take a look at the Optimum 600 Cold Press Juicer.

    1. Muggy is such a good word. Describes the UK's version of humid heat perfectly.
