Ingredients You’ll Need For Virgin Mojito Drink

  • 1 medium or 1/2 large lemon/lime (1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons juice)
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves (loosely packed)
  • Ice (as required)
  • 1 can soda (7UP/sprite)
  • 1 lemon or lime slice (presentation)

Tools You’ll Need

How To Make Virgin Mojito Drink?

In a large cup, squeeze the juice out of the lemon or lime use about 1 tablespoon to 1 1/2 tablespoons, depending on your citrus preference. For extra flavour put the squeezed lemon or lime peel into the cup as well.

Roughly tear up the mint leaves and add them into the cup. You can do this by blending it as well but to keep things quick and simple use your hands. Using a muddler or the back of a spoon press and mix the now added mint into the cup. This helps in releasing the flavour of the mint and combining it with the juices.

Next, add the desired amount of ice into the cup, for this, I would suggest using small-sized ice. Pour in the can of soda into the cup. It is recommended to use lemon flavoured soda for the best flavour, but you can go for other flavours as well.

Gently stir the mixture together with a straw or a spoon, this will further pierce the mint leaves giving a more minty flavour. Let it stand for a few minutes before serving to allow the flavours to blend. It’s best to serve with a straw. Enjoy!virgin mojito drink

Tips For Best Outcomes

Juicing limes

If you want to yield the maximum amount of juice from your limes, make sure they are at room temperature. Roll them in between your hands or on a bench firmly to release as much juice as possible before you cut it in half and start squeezing.

Preparing for a crowd??

If you are making this drink for a crowd, pulse the mint in a food processor or slice it thinly with a knife to save you time and energy.

Substitutes For Virgin Mojito Ingredients

Store Brought Lime Juice

You can substitute the fresh lime juice with store-bought lime juice or limeade if you don’t feel like squeezing limes, especially for a crowd. But if you’re only making it for yourself then it’s highly recommended that you squeeze your limes fresh.

Muddler-Meddler

If you don’t have a muddler you can use a mortar and pestle or even the back of a wooden spoon or fork.

Diet Soda

If you are concerned about the hundreds of calories associated with adding the club soda, you can add diet soda to your virgin mojito to make it ZERO calories. You can also add sparkling water as well if you prefer. virgin mojito drink

Variations For This Drink

Berries:

You can use a wide variety of berries such as blackberries, raspberries and strawberries to give it a nice tart fruity flavour whether they are frozen or fresh. Just take a handful of them and muddle them together with the mint and lime juice.

Peaches:

You can also use fresh or frozen peaches to amp-up the taste of your mojito. Canned can work just well. Same as before, muddle them together with the mint leaves and the lime juice to get a burst of that delicious peach flavour.

Grapefruit:

Grapefruit can add extra citrusy freshness to your virgin mojito drink.

Jalapeños:

Gather up some courage and spice things up by putting some sliced jalapeños to your virgin mojito.

Ginger Ale:

Ginger Ale can be used in place of soda or sparkling water as well. Basically, anything with carbonation is good to go. So if you prefer ginger ale use it!
