Virgin Mojitos

The first time I had a Virgin Mojito was over 5 years ago in Jamaica. We were staying at an all-inclusive resort and they were so refreshing and delicious. I still can't believe it took me this long to recreate one. Lime and mint go perfectly together.
This drink is so simple but delicious! And if I were you I would buy a mint plant to always have some on hand. There are just so many possibilities with mint!


Virgin Mojitos
Serves 4
24 mint leaves
1 large lime, cut into eighths
ice cubes
24 oz. lemon-lime soda or club soda + simple syrup (depending on the sweetness you want)

1. Place 6 mint leaves and 2 small lime wedges in each glass. Using a muddler or handle of a wooden spoon, crush lime and mint to release all of the juice. 
2. Pour in ice cubes and either 6 oz. lemon-lime or club soda into glasses. (If using club soda, pour 3 Tbsp. of simple syrup into each glass.)
3. Stir to combine. Serve with a straw and drink immediately.
