Pineapple No-jito Mocktail

Seeing as I don’t drink anymore, I love concocting fun beverages that I can still enjoy at a party.  Through my Latin dinner party series, I was inspired by the mojito, but of course nixed the rum and swapped in fresh pineapple for a fresh and easy mojito mocktail.

Pineapple No-jitos – Mojito Mocktail

Mojito Mocktail

It’s an easy recipe that calls for fresh pineapple, mint, lime and sparkling water.  I opted for Perrier Lime, just to really drive home the lime flavor in these.

You’ll see in the video that I use a hand blender for pureeing the pineapple.  Certainly, if you don’t have one, any standard blender will do.

Pineapple Mojito Mocktail

This is not a super sweet drink.  I don’t like to start my dinner with a sugar rush.  It’s simple, light, refreshing, but just festive enough to make you feel a little bit special when kicking back with a glass in hand.  Seriously, garnish anything with mint and you’ll be stylin’.
