Eversince I started Wholesome Cook,  I’ve had friends ask me to come up with ways to create certain foods or special treats in a more wholesome way. While cocktails are rarely synonymous with wholesome goodness, I’ve recently been asked to create a handful of alcohol free cocktail  (mocktail) recipes that would taste like the real thing, but wouldn’t leave you feeling ‘dusty’ the next morning.

With the mercury hitting the low 30s last weekend and myself in dire need of non-alcoholic refreshment I jumped at the opportunity:  it was time to experiment with a few seasonal ingredients to create some exciting mocktail flavour combinations. Or combination rather, as I never got to make anything else aside from the lychee mojito; just kept topping up my glass with this irresistible combination of [no added sugar] sweet and sour taste sensation.

To make a cocktail, simply add a nip of white rum, mix and enjoy.

Makes 2

Delicious lychee mojitos [including an alcohol free version]

  • 1 lime, quartered
  • 4 lychees
  • 12 mint leaves
  • 1 cup of lychee juice (Dewlands)
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp hot water
  • 1/2 cup soda water
  • Crushed ice to serve
  • (30ml white rum)

Peel and pit lychees, cut into halves. Mix honey with hot water to make syrup. Into a cocktail shaker squeeze and drop in lime wedges, lychees and mint leaves. Muddle (mash) with a wooden spoon. Add ice, (rum), juice and honey syrup. Stir and divide the contents between two glasses. Add more crushed ice to the glass and top with 1/4 cup soda water each.

    Crushing the mint leaves really is the trick to delicious mojitos! :)

  2. These look awesome! I must make them, my man is obsessed with lychees. I love them too – so refreshing! Bring on more of that warmer weather and I’ll be able to enjoy these in the evenings – perfection! I would use the rum too – I love an evening cocktail :)
