What do you need to make Strawberry Lime Mojito Mocktails
- You need strawberries
- mint leaves
If you have those 4 ingredients, you’re in business!
How to make a Strawberry Mocktail
First, grab a pitcher. It doesn’t need to be fancy. Place the strawberries (stems removed) and mint leaves into the pitcher.
Using a muddle, or the back of a wooden spoon, muddle the fruit and leaves.
You want to smash those strawberries really well! Muddling is all about extracting the juices from the fruit and mint leaves.
When muddling the mint leaves, don’t be too aggressive. You want to extract their juices as well, but you don’t want the mint leaves to tear and shred to pieces. It’s a balance. Isn’t everything
Once you get the strawberries and mint leaves muddled to perfection, add the lime juice. If you don’t like tart drinks, add 1/8 cup of lime juice. If you like a tarter drink add 1/4 cup lime juice. I like tart drinks so I added 1/4 cup lime juice.
After adding the lime juice, add Sprite to the pitcher.
If you don’t want to use Sprite, use Ginger ale. I used Sprite because to me it tastes sweeter. If you use something besides Sprite, just note you might want to add a couple tablespoons of sugar to the pitcher. If you taste the drink as you go, you can easily adapt it to your taste buds.
Once the Sprite has been added, stir everything together.
Add crushed ice to your glasses and pour the virgin strawberry lime mojito into each glass.
Whether you serve this at a summer barbecue, or at a holiday party to ring in the New Year your guests will surely love it!
