Virgin Mojito


Last week we went to a party where they were serving Virgin Mojitos. Virgin Mojito is a great summer drink. It is a mocktail which is made with lemon, mint and soda/sprite. I am not much of a mocktail person but this drink was so refreshing with its minty flavor that I had 2-3 glasses before I knew it. You could guess all the ingredients even with one sip- mint, lemon, sugar and soda for fizz yet all the flavors were blended really well. A perfect drink for all mint flavor lovers.


How to make Virgin Mojito
Preparation time: 5 minutes
No cooking required
makes 1 glass Virgin Mojito

ingredients:
10 fresh mint leaves
2 tbsp sugar
1 lemon
Ice cubes as desired
200 ml Sprite
Fresh mint leaves to garnish

To make Virgin Mojito
Chop the mint leaves. Cut lemon into small wedges and remove the seeds carefully. Keep one aside for garnish.

Crush mint leaves, sugar and lemon wedges in a tall glass using a wooden spoon for lemons to release all their juice and to blend in the flavors. Crushing of mint and lemon is referred to as muddling and is generally done with a muddler.

Add ice and top up with Sprite and mix well. Garnish with lemon slices and mint leaves. Serve chilled.

    hi…i tried the mojito and it turned out excellent. I substituted the sugar crystals with sugar syrup which made it faster and easier to make.

    • Nidhi says:

      sugar syrup is a great idea especially if we are making more than one glass. I am glad mojito turned out good.
