This virgin Mojito recipe is a refreshing way to serve a non-alcoholic summer drink.
Prep Time 10minutes
Total Time 10minutes
7 or 8mint leaves
1 or 2limes
Add the mint leaves and honey to a tall glass.
Squeeze 2 Tablespoons of lime juice from the limes and add it to the glass.
Use a muddler or wooden spoon to gently crush the mint leaves while you mix the ingredients.
Add a couple of slices of lime into the mix and muddle them as well.
Fill the glass with ice.
Fill the glass with club soda.
Garnish with a lime slice and a couple of mint leaves. Because of the leaves, it is easiest to drink with a straw.
Note that this drink is not a sweet one...if you want a sweeter version, you can try using sprite instead of club soda, or substitute the honey or simple syrup.I actually prefer honey than sugar in this mocktail version (it seems to blend with the mint well), but you can use a sugar-based simple syrup if you prefer.To get the most mint flavor, use Spearmint or Mojito Mint (Mentha x villosa). If you are using standard garden mint, you will probably need to add more leaves to get the same taste.For an alcoholic version of this drink, add an ounce of white rum before putting in the club soda.
