Spring is sprinting closer on the calendar. Time for a light, refreshing mocktail to rejuvenate the creative juices and shake the winter shack nasties.
It’s essentially a non-alcoholic mojito. The zippy mint and lime concoction can be modified to suit many occasions.
- Mint leaves
- Sprite, 7UP
- Lime or club soda
Start with a lime. Smoosh it lightly by rolling on a cutting board and then slice in half. Use half the lime to wet the top of your glass and dip the rim in sugar.
Muddle three mint leaves, two teaspoons of sugar and a dash of lime juice in the bottom of your glass.
Fill glass to rim with ice and add soda. Garnish with mint leaves and a slice of lime, insert straw and ta-da!
CUTE CUBES: Fill ice trays one-third full with water and freeze. Add edible candy sprinkles, Valentine hearts or another food gem. Add a bit more water and freeze. Top off with another layer of water and freeze to suspend the décor in the center of the cube.
