Homemade Lemon Mojito
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.
Mint leaves 5 to 10
Sugar 1/2 tsp
Cumin Powder- Pinch
Ice cubes as desired
200 ml Sprite
Chop mint leaves and lemon into small wedges, remove the seeds and keep aside.
In a tall glass add the mint, lemon, sugar, salt, cumin powder.
Using back of a wooden spoon crush lemons to release all their juice and to blend in the flavors.
Add ice cubes and top up with Sprite and mix well. Garnish with lemon slices and mint leaves. Serve chilled.
Voila!! Fancy mexican drink is ready 🙂
