Homemade Lemon Mojito

(Non Alchoholic)

I know it’s rainy season right now, but it’s sooo00 sunny these days in Hyderabad. Especially these 5 min rains are making the whether more sultry! Yesterday was one of those sunny days and I had pretty busy day. Though I am not much of a mock-tail person, last night I was craving for some refreshing drink!

I have long admired the mojito from afar. At a friends party they served these virgin mojitos and I was totally in love with it,  two of my favorite things together lime and mint. I saw this recipe on a food channel and was totally addicted!! And its  easy and simple to make, you’ll have a glass made in 5 mins flat!

So last night was a movie marathon night at home and I made this drink and some french fries for hubby dearest and me. It was amazingly refreshing and I wanted to share this recipe with everyone.

Technically you need a muddler (See pic below) to make mock-tails like these at home, but back of a big wooden spoon would do the needful.
