Cherry Mocktail

July is here and cherry season is upon us. Woohoo! One of my favorite times of the year 🙂 That means that now is the time to make cherry pie, cherry jam, cherry muffins, and all of your favorite cherry recipes and cherry mocktails. Cherries are small stone fruits that come in several varieties all of which fall into either the tart or sweet category. 

Sparkling Cherry Mocktail

I know we all love cherries because they are delicious, but let’s talk about some of the health benefits of cherries. Cherries are full of vitamins and other important nutrients. Cherries have vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, and copper. 

Cherries also contain antioxidants and have anti-inflammatory properties. They are also known to help with exercise recovery after strenuous workouts, are a natural form of melatonin, and can relieve the painful symptoms of gout. There are lots of great reasons to add more cherries to your diet! 

Cherry Mojito Mocktail

What better way to include more cherries in your day than to make a delicious, and refreshing mocktail? Mocktails are drinks that are combinations of fruit juices and soft drinks or sparkling water, and are often combined with fresh fruits. They are non-alcoholic so they are perfect for serving at summer picnics or around the pool.

Best Cherry Mocktail

To make our Cherry Mojito Mocktail you will need just a few simple ingredients. You will need some lemon, lime or lemon-lime sparkling water, limes, fresh mint sprigs, and of course…the star of the show… cherries.  We used dark sweet cherries in this simply sweet cherry mocktail recipe.

Finding fresh cherries at the grocery store shouldn’t be a problem during the summer months, but you can also use frozen cherries if that’s all you have.

How To Make A Cherry Mojito Mocktail

Cut your cherries up and put them in your glass. Use your muddler to break down your cherries a little bit.

You don’t need to completely pulverize the cherries, but you do want to try and break them down so that they can fit through a straw. Squeeze some fresh lime juice into your glass. Rub the mint leaves in your hands to release the oils and put them in your glass. Fill your glass with ice, and then top with your favorite sparkling water. Garnish with a lime slice and put a cherry on top. 

You could make a variation of this cherry mocktail by using non-alcoholic sparkling wine, kombucha, or sugar-free lemonade. 

Tasty Cherry Mocktail

This cherry mojito cocktail is perfect for summer BBQs, but you could also serve it during the holidays. The red and green colors are perfect for the season and the flavors are amazing year round! If you can’t find fresh cherries during the holiday season grab some frozen ones.

Just because there is no alcohol in your mocktails that doesn’t mean you can’t use a cocktail glass to serve them in. Margarita glasses and other cocktail glasses can still be used to serve your mocktails in. They will look more festive and taste even better when served in a fancy glass!

You can also use colorful seasonal straws for sipping, and making your mocktails look even more fun. Garnish your drinks with fresh fruit or mint sprigs, and pop a paper umbrella in! Mocktails don’t have to be boring 😉
