Virgin Mango Mojito #Blogchatter#A2Z

One particular summer drink that is my favourite is the mojito and this is a Virgin Mango Mojito. A Mojito is basically a rum-based drink that has crushed mint leaves, lemon juice (citrus flavours) and sugar. Mojitos without alcohol are known as ‘virgin mojitos’ and are considered as mocktails. Mocktails are non-alcoholic drinks which consist of fruit juices, syrups or soft drinks. Mocktails can be enjoyed by all who relish flavourful drinks sans alcohol.

Recipe of a Mojito

If there is an epitome of a refreshing mocktail, the Mojito it is. The basic recipe of a Mojito has 5 essentials of lime, juice, sugar, sparkling water or soda water, and mint. Each of these ingredients is apparently precisely chosen to cure pangs of thirst due to the heat in summer; it is chilled, sweet, slightly acidic, very minty, and sparkling. Linked with summer the Mojito is customarily served over ice in a highball glass.

Virgin Mango Mojito

The recipe of a Mojito is pretty simple but while mixing a mojito follow a precise order to get the best results. First, the mint is added to the lime juice and sugar and then muddled in order to release the flavour from the mint leaves. Muddle gently with a stone or steel pestle until your kitchen smells minty. The juice comes next with the ice and soda water at the end.

Cocktail or Mocktail

If you normally enjoy flavoured drinks like me, there are many mojito versions and recipes; Lychee for one, Plum for another. What I sometimes do is make popsicles out of this fruity mocktails and they are awesome in summer.

The Virgin Mango Mojito is delicious and refreshing and can be enjoyed at any time of the year. You can make this Mojito into a cocktail or mocktail and it is an easy summer drink recipe with mangos, fresh mint, and lime juice. The golden colour in a tall glass looks amazing and can be part of your party menu.

Recipe for Virgin Mango Mojito

Ingredients

100 Gms mango chunks

200 ml Mango juice fresh

5 sprigs mint leaves

2 lemon

300 ml Sprite/ soda / Sparkling water

Ice cubes

Method

Virgin Mango Mojito Recipe

Puree the mango pieces and make a thick juice adding a little sugar depending on the taste of the mangoes.

In a blender add sugar and lemon juice. Do not shred Mint/pudina leaves but muddle them.

This was only for me so I took a Pilsner glass (which is the tallest )and poured the mango juice

Now gently add the crushed mint leaves and lemon juice.

Add lots of ice cubes and then the mango chunks., followed by soda/sprite/sparkling water. Stir well and garnish with a lemon slice, mint leaves and a mango bite.

This chilled homemade Virgin Mango Mojito is perfect for a summer day and beats any beverage from the best cafe or bistro.

My writing was limited to school essays and projects for my kids and out of the blue, my writing career began with writing articles for the magazine section of a reputed national newspaper. I rediscovered my best subject at school and began writing with gusto. I had a weekend column in the newspaper which was well appreciated. I started off writing about Interiors and Gardens and later diverse topics like Fashion, trends, food and events in the city. Juggling my time between various jobs down the years and my writing, I have written content for fliers, brochures for colleges, speeches, social media content and also website content. I love writing and I am open to writing on a plethora of topics. My blog has some interesting insights into my life and travels but now it is mainly a food blog as I am growing organic vegetables and cooking my own produce is very therapeutic. Read my blogs to know me better. I write from my heart and what I write is what I feel... I feel a feel, A funny feel A funny feel, feel I! If you feel the feel I feel You'll feel the same as I!!

    We just got some ripe mangoes at home last evening and made mango shake today. Had I seen your post earlier, this is what I could have made instead. But this goes on my list for the weekend treat at home.
