Virgin Strawberry Mojito


Mojito is a Cuban cocktail that is made using five key ingredients, rum, sugar, lime juice, mint leaves and sparkling water. This is a twist to the traditional Mojito where I have made it nonalcoholic by omitting the rum and adding a summer  flavouring to it with the use of strawberries.

  2. I've never been a fan of mojitos due to the rum but a non alcoholic version sounds amazing. This would be perfect for a warm, sunny day!
