Here’s an easy Virgin Mojito recipe just because I happen to know one! Enjoy 🙂
- 15 mint leaves
- 1 oz/30ml freshly squeezed lime juice
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1⁄2 oz/15ml simple syrup (optional)
- 4 oz/120ml chilled ginger ale or sparkling water
Start by muddling the mint leaves, sugar, lime juice and syrup in a glass. Add some ice and pour in the ginger ale or sparking water. Add a slice of lime for decoration & voila.
