Phewww… HOT, HOT, Burning HOT…Its 100 degrees out here n soaring, Summer at its peak…!! And my search for a non-alcoholic thirst quencher lands me to this perfect blend of fresh blueberries, lime, & mint leaves … my Blueberry Virgin Mojito…!!
Now, mojitos are alcoholic drinks and basically a mix of white rum, lemon juice, sugar and mint leaves. Well, then why Virgin? Just thought to cater my non-alcoholic friends out here too, still giving you a hit from the sparkling soda, with an added twist of flavours from the berries…
And if you prefer being authentic, just replace the water in this recipe with white rum, and you are all good..!!
Berries are a wonderful variant to experiment on with different drinks. And if you are in need for a great tip to fix a quick drink for your guest? I recommend muddling a few berries n mixing with lime juice and mint – that’s an all-time winner drink…!!!
