Savyll is a London-based company that creates non-alcoholic alternatives to classic cocktails. A few months I reviewed my first Savyll cocktail, the Bellini which scored pretty well, and this time round I am trying their alcohol-free Mojito.
The Mojito originally surfaced in Cuba during the 1920’s and features the key ingredients of white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and mint. Certainly one of the most refreshing and tropical drinks around.
So was Savyll’s Mojito a small slice of Central American sunshine? Well, you’ll just need to read my review below.
Is this alcohol-free Mojito any good?
Just like their Bellini Savyll’s Mojito is a fantastic replica of an alcoholic Mojito. You do get all the flavours associatred with this iconic cocktail, especially the lime juice which is quite prevalent. For me though it was rather too sweet. I know Mojito’s have quite a bit of sugar in them but normally the lime juice and rum cut through the sugar but this is lacking in that extra ‘bite’. That said it is still very tasty but (like with the example of the Bellini) I could only really drink one can.
Aroma & Appearance
Close your eyes and take a whiff and you could easily be fooled you were about to drink a full streghth Mojito. You get all the expected aromas associated with the cocktail. When poured into the glass the drink has a pale yellowish look to it.
When it comes to healthy cocktails they don’t get much healthier than Savyll’s cocktails. This Mojto has 0% ABV is low in sugar and suitable for vegans and gluten-free drinkers. Availability-wise you can find these on online specialist sites or on Savyll’s site itself.
