Drink up - The Finest Virgin Mojito Recipe.

Ever since I got married, and I actually started cooking and experimenting with food, I wanted to do something new. With frequent house parties, I wanted to go past the fizzy drinks and soda cans on the table. I wanted to try something new.

Since we don't consume alcohol, I decided to dial it down a little notch and introduce virgin mojitos during dinner parties. With trial and error, this is my most perfected recipe. I can easily make it in a bunch and pour it in a glass jar. It is delicious and always a hit!

Things you will need:

  • A handful of mint leaves,
  • Sugar,
  • Half a lime, 
  • Sprite/7up (I prefer sprite),
  • Salt (optional)

I usually freeze a few mint leaves in ice cubes, they add a nice touch to the drink and enhance the flavour as well.

Take about 3-4 mint leaves in a mortar and pestle and add about two pinches of sugar. crush them and add add them in a glass. add a dash of lime juice some mint ice cubes and fill it the glass with sprite. taste it and add more lime juice to just the flavour.

If you are serving the mojito in a glass, you can decorate it with rubbing a little lime juice on the rim of the glass and dipping the glass rim in salt. And add a little slice of lime to give it an actual mojito touch.

There you go! Easy as anything and you don't even have to worry about getting it wrong! And I can assure you, it will be a hit amongst your guests during your parties.
