MOJITO ON THE ROCKS (NON-ALCOHOLIC) MOCKTAIL
Mojito (read Mohito) is a traditional Cuban highball. Traditionally, a mojito is a cocktail that consists of five ingredients: white rum, sugar, lime juice, sparkling water and mint.
Main alcohol: Rum
But since I don’t consume alcohol I will share with you this wonderful non-alcoholic recipe which is very refreshing and has health benefits too.
Note the recipe of Mojito served on the rocks.
Mint leaves – 6-8 fresh mint leaves
Soda water – ½ glass Club soda
Lime juice – 2 tablespoons (freshly squeezed)
Sugar – 2 teaspoons
Ice cubes – As required (For one glass of Mojito you require one glass of ice)
In a tall glass, Add lime juice, sugar and about 6-8 mint leaves. With the help of a spoon or a cocktail muddler crush the mint leaves into the lime juice and sugar. This releases oils from the mint and helps the sugar dissolve into the lime juice. Stir well then pour into a glass filled with ice, leaving about an inch of room then top with club soda. Garnish with extra mint leaves and a lime slice.
Serve on the rocks; poured over ice with a straw
You can make this for a family of four with the quantity as below
Freshly squeezed lime juice - ½ cup
Sugar - 3 – 4 tablespoons
