Finally we have a mint bush in our garden. It is a blast. What is even better is our fresh basil. Ah, gotta love the home-grown stuff :) When you know it's yours, it just tastes better! So if I have mint then why not make mojitos? I actually would have preferred the original - not virgin - version but virgin was requested so virgin it is. Maybe I will just sneak a bit of vodka into mine ;) It just tastes better with it....
On a summer day it is a lovely drinking treat. It's the best if we let it sit in the fridge so the flavors mix in together. And of course, the colder the better. :)
3 liter cold water or club soda
1 cup mint leaves
4-5 teaspoons raw brown sugar
3-4 limes (it depends on how big the limes are)
lots of ice
Put the limes, mint and sugar in a glass and try to blend it together.
Fill glass with the ice.
Top off with water or club soda.
Stir with a spoon.
