Icy Mojito Mocktail
An icy mojito mocktail is the perfect solution to a hot summer day. And I don’t know where you live, but it has been HOT in Utah. This drink really hits the spot!
Although I don’t drink alcohol, I am definitely a fancy drink person (as you can tell from this infusion recipe), so this mojito mocktail checks all the boxes for me. The sweet bubbles of Sprite perfectly balance the cool mint leaves and tangy lime. With this icy mojito mocktail, you’ll feel like you’re on vacation in no time.
One caveat about this recipe: I listed the ingredients by serving because this would be a perfect mocktail for two, but you could also make a bucket of it for your next barbecue. Feel free to play with the proportions; this is just what I found to be right if you’re making it by the glass.
Ingredients (per serving)
6 mint leaves
1 tablespoon lime juice (and zest, if using fresh limes)
1 cup Sprite
First, combine the mint leaves and lime juice in a small bowl. Muddle (which means to gently mash) the mint leaves to release extra flavor. If you don’t have a muddler, use a wooden spoon.
Next, add the mint and lime juice mixture to a pitcher of Sprite (or to each glass, if making individual servings).
To serve, fill a glass with ice and pour in the mojito mocktail on top. Garnish with mint leaves. Cheers!
