Virgin Mojito is a classic and refreshing non-alcoholic drink made from mint leaves, lemon juice and sweetened to taste. It is great for parties and entertaining since everyone can enjoy it plus is super simple to make.
Club sodasprite , sparkling water or ginger ale (as required)
MuddlerOr large wooden spoon and glass of choice
In a tall serving glass add the lime juice, simple syrup, half of the lime slices and mint leaves and muddle/crush using the muddler (or use back of the large wooden spoon).
Muddle only for 10 seconds or so such that the mint releases its essential oils.
Don't over do it as it will make the mint taste bitter and your drink may taste unpleasant.
Now fill your glass with ice and top with your choice of bubbling drink like club soda, sparkling water, sprite or ginger ale.
Garnish with lemon slices and mint leaves and serve immediately.
Adjust the sweetness and tartness to your liking.
The choice of drink (Club soda, sprite , sparkling water or ginger ale) you use will change the way your Mojito tastes. But all these are great combinations and finally comes down to what you like and have available.
