This mocktail is a perfect balance of sweet, from the satsuma juice, and sour from the grapefruit juice. The fresh mint crushed into it will remind you of a mojito but the citrus flavors will be a bit more nuanced and subtle.

  • 8-10 satsumas or clementines (about 2 cups juice total)
  • 2 small grapefruit
  • 1 lemon
  • A large handful of mint leaves
  • Maple syrup, to taste
  • Sparkling water


  1. Remove the peel and pulp from the citrus and juice all of it together.
  2. In the bottom of your glass, add several mint leaves (about 10 or so), a tiny drizzle of maple syrup, and a splash of juice.
  3. Muddle the mint until it is bruised and very fragrant.
  4. Shake the juice really well, then pour it over the mint. Add around 3/4 cup of juice to each glass. Top the juice off with 2-4 tablespoons or so of sparkling water and ice as needed.

  1. LOVE how quick this is and healthy too! I have featured it (the link) today on my site called "Super Quick Plant-Based Recipes" – where I feature daily recipes that take 20 min. or less to prepare (and many take only 5-10 min.). Thanks for this great idea!
