Non-alcoholic cocktail recipe: Pineapple Mint Splash


  • Makes4 to 4 servings

This refreshing, all-ages drink is inspired by the Cuban mojito cocktail. Use fresh-pressed pineapple juice (from the refrigerator aisle) if you can find it, as it has a much better flavour than canned juice. You can make up the juice-and-mint mixture hours ahead, and add the soda water (and a splash of rum for the grown-ups) as close to serving time as possible


  • 3 cups pineapple juice

  • 2 tbsp lime juice

  • 1/2 cup mint leaves

  • 1 cup soda water, or sparkling mineral water

  • mint sprigs, for garnish


  • Combine pineapple juice, lime juice and mint leaves in a pitcher, and use a wooden spoon to crush the mint slightly to release its flavour. Add soda water and stir just to combine. Serve garnished with fresh mint sprigs.
