Many of you have requested us soft drinks, so we decided to start with one of the most famous and refreshing drinks: Virgin Mojito :D! This is the non-alcoholic variant of mojito, the popular Cuban cocktail flavoured with fresh mint and lime. In this version, the white rum is replaced by ginger ale, which adds a touch of spicy ginger to the drink.
Take a look to the original version of the Mojito too, you will find some curiosities about the origins of this magic in glass 😉 .
If you try one of the recipes on the blog, take a photo and publish it on Instragam with the hashtag #fratelliaifornelli and tagging our profile @fratelliaifornelli.
- 1/2 lime
- mint leaves
- 2 spoons of brown sugar
- ginger ale
- crushed ice
Take a tumbler glass, add the half lime cut in 4 parts and the sugar. Use a muddler or a spoon to crush the lime.
Add a few mint leaves and gently bruise them.
Mix the ice in a food processor to achieve that fine consistancy that will turn your drink into pure magic. Now, fill up the tumbler with the ice.
Gently pour the ginger ale and stir from bottom to top with a long spoon.
Decorate with a lime slice, mint tips and enjoy your non-alcoholic mojito! 🙂
