I Quit Sugar recipe: No-Booze Blueberry Mojito

Here at IQS, we’re not adverse to a bit of alcohol consumed responsibly. A glass of red or a frosty beer with dinner, for example.

But cocktails are a whole nother story. With syrups, juice and sweet liqueurs in the mix, most mixed drinks we’ve come across are, well, cocktails of sugar.

These mocktails, on the other hand, are as close to virtuous as a festive tipple can be. Sweetened with a little fruit or rice malt syrup, take these out for a spin at your next party!

Oh, and by the way, if you want to make these alcoholic, just click the titles for instructions.
