Non-Alcoholic Tangerine Mojito

A quick recipe for a refreshing, delicious, and eye-pleasing mojito mocktail

I saw some beautiful "honey tangerines" at the grocery store and thought they'd be the perfect ingredient in this bright and fresh mock-jito (sorry). You could easily substitute an orange or other variety of mandarin. I googled what the difference between mandarins, tangerines, and clementines are... I still barely understand. All I know is that any of them would be delicious in a mojito.

Even I Can Grow My Own Mint

I will admit that I have a black thumb... or whatever the opposite of a green thumb is. I cannot seem to grow anything except invasive species like blackberry bushes, ivy, and... MINT. I planted one mint starter last year and I literally can't kill it. It's the easiest herb to grow and I highly recommend throwing one in a pot if you're going to be crafting some homemade drinks this spring and summer.

Mint pairs great with most citrus and juices, so it's my go-to herb in many mocktail recipes and low-alcohol drinks. Rosemary is my second go-to herb and also pretty dummy-proof to grow year-round.

  • 1 tangerine (or mandarin orange)

  • 5-6 mint leaves

  2. Muddle 30 seconds.

  3. Add ice and shake another 30 seconds.

  4. Fill glass with fresh ice. Top with orange bitters.
