Mint & Lime

You can’t go wrong with the classic Virgin Mojito when craving something refreshing and hydrating during the hot summer days. It’s full of zesty lime juice, refreshing mint leaves, and fizzy bubbles that are perfect for the whole family to enjoy.

The key to this recipe is the freshly squeezed lime juice. It adds a bright pop of citrus flavor you can’t get from store-bought juices. It’s also essential to use a sweetener that suits your diet. For example, if you’re trying to reduce your sugar intake, try using a dissolving sweetener like monk fruit, stevia, or honey instead of the traditional granulated sugar.

To prepare this tasty mocktail:

  1. Mash the strawberries, mint leaves, and lime juice together in a glass.

We recommend using small cubed ice instead of crushed ice for a fresh flavor. It will prevent dilution and keep the drink nice and cold.

Many mojito recipes call for muddling the mint leaves, but this can be messy and may result in mint chunks stuck in your teeth later on (not fun). To avoid this, try our unique trick for muddled mint: stack the mint leaves in your palm and gently clap them together. It will release their aromatic oils and eliminate the need for a muddler.
