Mojitos used to be my all time favourite cocktail around my late teens or early twenties, when I could afford them anyway, that is until one time when I overdosed on them once at a friends 21st birthday party (there was a free bar). I wasn’t ill or anything, just slightly tipsy and absolutely buzzing off all the sugar, and since then whenever I’ve tried them they’ve just tasted way too sweet.
I still love the combination though of tangy lime and refreshing mint, with just a hint of sweetness, so I’ve created a little mojito juice that is just as tasty and refreshing as the original, but with much less sugar and no alcohol (although you’re welcome to add that back in if you like).
It’s so easy to make and if you don’t have a juicer you can make it in your blender too – just add 1 1/2 cups of water and pour the juice through a nut bag or strainer to get rid of all the pulp.
- 2 apples
- 2 limes
- A small bunch of mint
If you’re using a juicer, just pop the apples and limes in, turn it on and pour into glasses to serve. If you’re using a blender, blend the apples and limes with 1 1/2 cups water for about a minute and pour through a small sieve or cheesecloth into glasses. Garnish with a small sprig of mint.
