Virgin Pomegranate Mojito

A cool and refreshing summer drink

A mojito, traditionally, consists of five ingredients: sugar, rum, lime juice, soda water and mint. Here is my version of a mojito that is alcohol-free. It is deliciously refreshing, a perfect summer drink. 

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Total Time 15 minutes

Servings 2 persons

Collect it: 

· 2 sour limes

· 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves

· 5 tbsp simple sugar syrup

· 200 ml Sprite

· 1 cup crushed ice

· 1/2 cup pomegranate juice (fresh/packet)

Make it:

MUDDLE the mint leaves and lemon wedges in the mortar pestle (save a few leaves and lemon slices for garnish)

CRUSH the ice cubes in the blender but make sure it still has some ice chips / rough chunks in it

TAKE two the glasses of your choice. Add some crushed ice, pour half the muddled mixture. To this add:

2.5 tbsp. of sugar syrup in each glass,

1/4 cup of the pomegranate juice

100ml Sprite

GARNISH the glasses with mint leaves and lemon wedges.

Served chilled!

Helpful Tips:

  • I omitted the sugar completely. You can adjust the sweetness.

  • You could coat the rims of the serving glasses with some cayenne pepper or salt. I prefer Himalayan pink salt.
