Plum and Apple Mojito

Plum and Apple Mojito

The scarlet red plum, this cute globular fruit seduced me into making this Plum and Apple Mojito. Β It is a small ruby red orb, sweet and sour and packs a punch. A handful of plums a day give you carbs, protein, fibre, vitamins, minerals and proteins to keep you healthy. Plums are rich in vitamin K that is good for kids as it helps in building healthy bones and Vitamin-A which is great for a strong vision. Along with these benefits, it is good for the digestive system too.

Plum Mojito

While whizzing past the other day, I saw many cart vendors selling plums and I just stopped and grabbed a pound. I wondered what I could make with them and I struck upon the idea of a Juicy Plum Mojito. I have made mango and lychee Mojitos then why not with plums. I set out to make the Mojito wondering how it would taste and I was pleasantly surprised when it turned out just perfect.

Recipe for Plum and Apple Mojito

I love the taste of lemons but the distinctive flavour of the plums was very refreshing. The ripe plums were sweet and I had to add minimum sugar (choose the deep red ones if you want sweet plums). I added Indian spices like fresh mint, cumin powder and black salt and juice of one apple and lemon juice. The black salt and cumin powder give the mojito a really flavourful punch. The muddled fresh mint leaves from my garden gave out a heady aroma. You can add or remove whatever suits your palate.  It looked so exotic and rich and as I liked the colour I kept my drink thick but you can add more water if you would like to. Add some vodka and you will have a yummy cocktail Mojito.
