Strawberry Lime Mojito Mocktail
Strawberry, mint, lime, and Sprite make this virgin Strawberry Mojito recipe one worth repeating!
Servings: 4 mojitos
- 12-14 Strawberries, stems removed
- 8 Large mint leaves, - if they are on the small size add12 mint leaves
- 2 1/2 cups Sprite*
- 1/8 cup Fresh lime juice*
Add strawberries and mint leaves to a pitcher. Using a muddle (or a wooden spoon), muddle the strawberries and mint leaves. You're basically crushing then strawberries and mint leaves to extract the juices. Be careful as you don't want to tear the mint leaves to pieces.
Add the lime juice and Sprite to the pitcher. Stir.
Fill glasses with crushed ice (optional). Pour the virgin mojito mixture over the ice. Garnish with extra mint and lime slices. Serve immediately.
*I only added 2 1/2 cups of Sprite because it kept each of the flavors balanced. If you'd like to make the flavors more subtle, add 3-4 cups of Sprite. This will increase the number of mojito servings as well.
**feel free to add 1/4 cup of lime juice for a stronger lime flavor.
***I didn't add sugar to this drink because I used Sprite, which is pretty sweet already. If using Ginger Ale you may want to add a few tablespoons of sugar to sweeten the drink. Taste as you go to adjust to your liking.
