For date night a couple weeks ago, we ate at Communal in downtown Provo. The food was delicious (who knew brussels sprouts were so good when roasted?!), and we also had the yummiest drink. It was imported Sprite (from Mexico), mixed with mint and lime. So crisp and delicious! I don’t remember what they called it, but my husband and I joked that they were Mo-jitos (“Mo” as in Mormon, haha). Real Mojitos are made with mint, lime, simple syrup, club soda and rum. So these are definitely an easier, non-alcoholic version.
We made them for my family to have with Thanksgiving dinner, and they were a huge hit.
They’re not complicated at all, just 3 ingredients over ice: mint, lime, and Sprite. I would suggest using the imported Sprite, it just has a slightly different taste. Sweeter and less fizzy, I think. I was able to buy it at Walmart, no problem.
I used about 8 leaves of mint, and crushed them up a bit in the bottom of the glass with the handle of a butter knife, then squeezed in a quarter of a lime (dropping it in the glass as well), topped with ice and Sprite and stirred a bit.
These virgin mojitos are great for parties and holidays, or to make a meal a bit more special.
