Welcome warmer days with this Rhubarb Mint Mojito, made with a simple rhubarb syrup, fresh mint and lime. Easy to make it non-alcoholic, too!
I’m not a fan of sugary cocktails, so this Rhubarb Mint Mojito is an ideal drink for me! It’s a little sweet, but not too sweet, and a little tart, but not overly so. And in fact, I really don’t care if it has rum in it at all! This recipe makes a great mocktail, or non-alcoholic drink that kids like, too.
Mint and lime add a refreshing twist to this springtime cocktail. Imagine how welcome an icy glass of like this would be on a hot sunny day!
I make this Organic Ginger Mint Cooler often, both with and without alcohol. My grandchildren love the non-alcoholic version. Today I wanted to try something a little different, and with rhubarb ready in the garden, this Mojito mocktail seemed like a good choice.
Rhubarb Mint Mojitos for a Crowd!
You can make this Mojito for a crowd by doubling the recipe for the Rhubarb Simple Syrup. Make a batch of the syrup ahead of time and store in the fridge. It will keep for up to two weeks.
How to Make a Rhubarb Mint Mojito
When ready to serve this Rhubarb Mint Mojito, muddle some fresh mint leaves with ice in a cocktail shaker, then add the rhubarb simple syrup, lime juice, and rum and shake until well chilled. Strain into a glass, top with sparkling water or ginger ale, garnish with a sprig of mint and/or a slice of lime and serve to your appreciative friends!
Here’s an even easier option, (or for those who don’t like mint.) Make a refreshing non-alcoholic drink by adding two ounces of this rhubarb simple syrup to a glass with ice. Top with natural artisan ginger ale or sparkling water. Add a squeeze of lime juice and a slice of lime and serve!
