I love having a refreshing drink and I love the taste of lemons/limes. The first thing that pops into my head when I say 'lime/lemon' and 'refreshing drink' in one sentence, is a mojito. The sour taste of the fruit, the sweet taste of the alcohol.. one disadvantage: we can't sip our alcoholic beverages all day. That is why I wanted to share this 'Nojito' recipe with you: perfect for days in your garden, together with a good book.
WHAT YOU NEED
- Sparkling water (make sure it's extremely cold!)
- 1/2 lime. (I personally prefer the taste of a lemon but classic mojitos contain limes.)
- A little amount of sugar (if you don't think it's sweet enough)/ginger syrup
- Some mint leafs
- Crushed ice (you can throw some ice cubes in your blender)
Fill up your glass with the crushed ice, mint leafs and the lime/lemon. Pour the sparkling water over it, and add some sweet syrup/sugar/ginger syrup to the nojito if you do not like the taste, which might be quite sour. I love this drink if I don't have the opportunity to have an alcoholic mojito, which is almost all of the time.
I didn't actually crush my ice because the blender was being unfriendly, that's why you see ice cubes!
Let me know if you'll ever try this recipe, and if you liked it!
