Without the rum, a mojito is still a fantastic beverage—a delicious a combination of sweet, tangy and herby flavors. We made this one especially for nonalcoholic consumption. The agave syrup gives the drink a little of the viscosity and amber flavor you might miss from the rum.



  1. Add the mint leaves and lime quarters to a cocktail shaker and muddle with a muddler or the handle of a wooden spoon until the mint has released its oils, about 20 seconds. Add the lime juice, nonalcoholic rum, if using, agave and ice and shake vigorously until the strainer starts to develop a frost on the outside, about 30 seconds. Divide the contents equally between 2 large rocks or high ball glasses. Fill the glasses with seltzer and serve with a fresh sprig of mint.

Cook’s Note

If you ever have limes or lemons that are about to go bad (or you just have a lot of extras), juice them and freeze the juice in an ice cube tray. A standard ice cube is about 2 tablespoons (1 ounce), so they're easy to add to a frozen or shaken cocktail. It’s a great way to prep ahead and keep from wasting precious juice.
