Non-Alcoholic Mojito

Ingredients

1 lime

1-ounce honey syrup, more to taste

10 to 15 mint leaves

4 to 6 ounces of sparkling water or club soda

1 mint sprig for garnish

Instructions

  1. Cut the lime into wedges(about 4 or 5), reserving one for garnish. Add the remaining wedges along with the honey syrup to a tumbler. Muddle well to release all of the lime juice (use wooden spoon if you don’t have a muddler).
  2. Add the mint, tearing each leaf into smaller pieces, and muddle gently to release the herb’s essence.
  3. Fill the glass with ice then sparkling water or soda. Add more honey syrup, if desired. Stir well to incorporate the lime and mint into the ice.
  4. Garnish with the reserved lime wedge and a sprig of mint. Serve and enjoy.
