Like I said before…
This is less of a Non-alcoholic Mojito and more of a Mint Limeade. I just feel so much cooler saying the first one. 😉
Whatever the case, this is delicious and super refreshing!
2 tbsp sugar
1 can sprite
4 c. Water
Quarter the lime, squeeze the juice into a pitcher and drop each quarter into a glass. (Yes, it’s just for looks. 😉 )
Add the sugar, sprite, and water. Stir. (You could also eliminate the sprite and water and just use club soda. This is just what we had on hand.)
Add a sprig of crushed mint into each glass along with the limes. As to the crushed mint… Ideally you’d use a mortar and pestle I suppose, but we didn’t have one. We just used a cutting board and a rolling pin. Anything to get it crushed to get the flavor out. Word to the wise: Don’t chop it into little pieces. Tried that. Once. 😉 )
Add ice to glasses and fill with drinks.
For best results, serve with a striped straw. ENJOY!
This goes good with the Creamy Tomato Basil Sauce on pasta. I happen to know that first-hand. 😉
