Virgin mojito or mocktail with watermelon and Fanta.
Mojito is a traditional Cuban highball.
Traditionally mojito is a cocktail or alcohol based drink consist of mint leaves, lime juice, sugar sparkling water and white rum.
But virgin mojito has lime juice, mint leaves and sugar syrup.
And mocktail is a non alchoholic drink which consists of a mixture of fruit juices, syrups or soft drinks.
Call it virgin mojito or mocktal but taste is awesome.
Weather is too hot. And its a perfect drink to beat the heat.
I haven’t used sugar in it. I have a Fanta bottle so used it but you can use any orange flavored carbonated drink.
You can use sparkling water or soda water too but then you have to use sugar in it. You can make it with litchi too if you don’t like watermelon.
Watermelon cubes – 2 cup seedless
Lemon juice – 2 teaspoon
Mint leaves – 1/4 cup loosely packed
Fanta – 1/2 cup
Ice cubes – as require
Combine watermelon cubes, mint leaves and lemon juice. If you don’t like mint much add only few leaves. Blend till smooth.
Strain the mixture and add Fanta. You can use any orange flavored carbonated drink too.
If you are using sparkling water or soda water add sugar to taste before blending.
Keep the mixture in refrigerator for an hour to chilled.
Now place some ice cubes and few fresh mint leaves in a glass. Pour the mixture over it.
Garnish with mint spring, lemon and watermelon wedges.
Enjoy the heavenly taste.
