Cocktails with MINTA Naturally Flavored Sodas


I love entertaining and having people in our home. We always serve wine or beer if our guests drink, but there are times I would love to offer cocktails. I do have a beautiful bar cart after all! But when it comes to making cocktails, it can be a little intimidating. And, if you don’t make cocktails all the time, you don’t want to have a gazillion liquors and cocktail making supplies. You want it simple. You want to be able to create a drink that’s beautiful and tastes amazing.

Well my cocktail loving friends, let me introduce you to MINTA, a naturally flavored soda.

Minta Mojito

What is MINTA? It’s a naturally flavored soda that combines a mint blend, fruit juice, carbonation, and pure cane sugar to create this amazing fresh, delicious tasting beverage. It’s perfect as a treat for your soda-loving kids (it’s been approved by my 11-year-old) or as a mixer to add sparkle and minty taste to your cocktails.

It comes in  MINTA Original, MINTA Strawberry, and the new MINTA Lemon.

I put my cocktail making skills to the test and used MINTA Original for all three. How did they turn out? Absolutely delicious and something I would be proud to serve to guests. Plus, they’re fun to make and they look fantastic.

The one pictured above is the MINTA Mojito. It was super easy to make:

  • In a glass muddle together mint leaves and a lime wedge
  • Add the rum (1 1/2 oz) and top with MINTA Original (4 oz.)
  • Stir and add ice cubes
  • Garnish with mint leaves and lime wedge

Up next, I made a Winter Chill cocktail.

It’s a gorgeous white drink that when you add the raspberries and mint, the drink just pops.

To make the Winter Chill cocktail:

  • Pour in a glass 1 1/2 oz of orange vodka, 1/2 oz of orange liqueur and stir
  • Pour over 5 oz of MINTA Original
  • Add ice, plus mint and raspberries for garnish

Last up, and one that was my favorite is the MINTA Pomegranate Mojito.

To make this cocktail:

  • Pour in a glass 4 oz. of white rum, 3 oz of pure pomegranate juice and 5 oz of MINTA Original, stir
  • Add in a squeeze of lime juice, ice, mint leaves and lime wedge for garnish

To give the kids a little something special to drink, you could pour them a glass of MINTA Strawberry with ice, garnish with mint leaves, strawberries and of course, a striped straw.

Now, who’s ready to come over for a cocktail party? 🙂 To find out more about MINTA and where to purchase, visit
