Muddled Mojito Water

Weekly Recipe

Muddling is a technique bartenders use to help release the flavor of drink components, usually fruits, herbs and spices. Muddling is similar to using a mortar and pestle in cooking. It’s great for bringing out the flavor in something without the use of heat.


  • 1/2
    lime (cut into 2 pieces)
  • 2
    sprigs of mint (to your taste), reserve one for garnish
  • 2-4 Cups
    unsweetened black cherry sparkling water, or unflavored, if preferred


  1. In bottom of pitcher, place lime pieces and 1 sprig mint.

  2. Using a muddler or back of any spoon, smash the lime and mint together to release the lime juice and oils from the mint.

  3. Add 2-4 cups sparkling water (amount depends on how strong you want the flavor to be) and stir.

  4. Pour flavored water over ice, garnish with a mint sprig and serve.
