Mojito cocktails are very refreshing any time of year but especially when the temperatures rises because they’re minty and refreshing.
White rum is traditionally used in a classic Mojito.
But in this recipe we are going to make this drink without the rum.
This Mojito is a perfect combination of honey with lime which makes the perfect match of sweet & citrus.
It’s just as good as the one with rum if not better.
The difference is that you don’t have a hangover nor do you feel guilty the next day.
- 15 mint or peppermint leaves (fresh)
- 1 tablespoon honey.
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 2 lime
- 1/2 cup Soda
- 1/2 cup ice cubes
- Garnish: more fresh mint or peppermint leaves.
- Cut one lime into 4 wedges.
- Place 10 mint or peppermint leaves, 2 lime wedges honey and sugar into a sturdy glass.
- Muddle everything with a pestle. You have to crush the mint and lime to release the mint oils and lime juice
- Fill the glass almost to the top with ice.
- Add 2 more lime wedges, 2 tablespoon lime juice (from the other lime) and other 5 mint or peppermint leaves.
- Fill the glass with soda.
- Stir, taste, and add more honey if needed for you.
This recipe makes 1 mojito, but the recipe can easily be doubled or tripled by muddling the mint in a larger container and dividing it among the glasses.
