Mojito is a famous cocktail with a fresh and punchy taste. This was originated in Havana, Cuba. This Cuban highball is generally prepared with white rum, sugar, lime juice, sparkling water and mint. There are several variations of this traditional cocktail. This includes use of tequila, vodka or flavoured drinks like apple flavoured drinks.

Virgin mojito is a non-alcoholic version based on this famous highball where the alcoholic drink is replaced with soda water, ginger ale or sparkling water. A variation of virgin mojito is strawberry mojito.

How to make Strawberry Mojito:

At first slice the strawberries and muddle the mint leaves. Be careful when muddling the mint leaves. It should be bruised enough to release the essential oils and flavor but not over muddled or smashed as the mint can get bitter and this will ruin the drink. Now take all the ingredients except ice cube in a mixing jug and blend well. If you have a blender, just 1-2 seconds enough, else take it in a container with lid and shake well. Pour it on a glass and put the ice cube. Garnish with strawberry slices, mint leaves or lemon wedges.

Enjoy the punchy freshness and kick without alcohol. Cheers!!!
