pex cap on copper pipe

I am removing some cabinets for a remodel job and need to cap off some copper supply lines under the sink. Is there a method where I can use a pex fitting at the end of the copper pipe or do I need to solder a copper end cap?
I am not confident enough to solder any copper fitting.

Get a Sharkbite (or 1 of their kin) cap. It pushes on and is removable. Any plumbing supply, big box or decent hardware store carries them
