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 that 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.
Its tangy-sweet flavor is so refreshing that one glass will never be enough 😉 😉 And it is one drink that your kids will love too. Always a bonus. Right 😉
Virgin Mojito will give a blast of flavors in your mouth. This is also a perfect drink to serve and impress your guests. Cool flavorful drink on a hot summer day makes it bearable.
It has never disappointed me 😉

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.

Hope you enjoy this refreshing drink as much as my family does 🙂
