Herbal Mocktail - Mojito

Ingredients:

  • 4 limes
  • 1 cup fresh spearmint leaves
  • 4 tablespoons raw honey
  • A pinch of sea salt
  • 3 cups brewed spearmint tea, cooled
  • 2 cups sparkling water

Instructions:

1. Prepare the Ingredients:

  • Start by washing the limes and spearmint leaves thoroughly.
  • Cut the limes into quarters, and set aside a few spearmint leaves for garnishing later.
2. Muddle the Mint:
  • In a large pitcher, add the fresh spearmint leaves.
  • Using a muddler or the back of a wooden spoon, gently muddle the mint to release its essential oils.
3. Juice the Limes:
  • Juice the limes and add the juice to the pitcher with the muddled mint.
4. Sweeten the Mix:
  • Add the raw honey to the pitcher.
  • Whisk together the lime juice, muddled mint, and honey until well combined.
5. Add the Sea Salt:
  • Sprinkle in a pinch of sea salt and whisk again to ensure it's evenly distributed.
Brew and Add the Tea:
  • Brew the spearmint tea and let it cool completely.
  • Pour the cooled tea into the pitcher and stir the mixture well.
6. Top it Off:
  • Just before serving, add the sparkling water to the pitcher. This gives your mojito a delightful fizz.
  • Stir gently to combine.
7. Prepare the Glasses:
  • To serve, ensure no crushed mint gets into the drink by using a fine strainer if necessary.
  • Line the rim of each cup with a lime wedge and dip it into sea salt for a zesty touch.
8. Serve and Enjoy:
  • Fill your glasses with ice if desired and pour the herbal mojito over the top.
  • Garnish with a few reserved spearmint leaves and a slice of lime for a beautiful presentation.

Tips and Variations:

  • Make it Sweeter: Adjust the amount of honey to your taste. You can also experiment with other natural sweeteners like agave syrup or stevia.
  • Chill Your Ingredients: For an extra refreshing drink, make sure all your ingredients, including the tea and sparkling water, are well chilled before mixing.
