We are making healthy cocktails that are so mind-blowingly delicious, you’ll feel giddy without the liquor! Sweet, tart, and a little spicy, makes this refreshing mocktail something you and your guests will love.  Some jalapeños are spicier than others, some ginger is more fragrant than others, so become your own mixologist and make sure you season it to your delight!


  • 6 ounces pineapple juice (reduced to 2 tablespoons)
  • 2 limes, peeled            
  • 2 medium sized cucumbers (no need to peel)  
  • 2-inch piece of ginger, peeled        
  • ¼ jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced (or more to make it spicy)                    
  • 3 fresh mint leaves


  1. In a small saucepan, bring pineapple juice to a boil, then lower the heat to medium. Simmer for 6-7 minutes until the juice has reduced to a thick syrup, about 2 tablespoons.  Allow to cool. 
  2. Using a juicer, juice limes, cucumbers, and ginger. 
  3. Place the jalapeño and mint into a cocktail shaker, or other sturdy vessel container with a lid.  Muddle together to form a paste. Add in the juice, pineapple syrup and some ice.  Shake to combine. Taste and add more lime juice for tartness, pineapple syrup for sweetness, and ginger or jalapeño for more of a kick.  You are the “mixologist” so season to excite your taste buds and everyone will like it as well.
To Serve:

Pour the mocktail through the strainer, into martini glasses, drink, and have another! Your body will love it.
