For 1 Virgin Mojito
10freshlarge mint leaves
2tablespoonsfreshly squeezed lime juice
2tablespoonssimple syrup(Note 1)
1/2cupclub soda, ginger ale, or sparkling lime water(Sparkling lime water is my favorite!)
Plenty of ice
Optional garnish: lime wedge or slice of lime
Place the mint leaves in a glass; pour the fresh lime juice and simple syrup (See Note 1) right on top of the mint. Use a muddler to press down on the mint and release its flavor (see Note 2). Using your dominant hand, press down and twist lightly 3-4 times. Add in the club soda, ginger ale, or sparkling lime water. Fill up the glass with ice and then stir. Garnish, if desired, with a slice or wedge of lime and then serve immediately!
Note 1: Simple syrup is just equal parts water and white granulated sugar. Combine equal parts of both (I do 1/2 cup of each) in a small pot over medium-high heat. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved and then cool completely. Store leftovers in an airtight or sterile container in the fridge for up to a month. Note 2:Don't have a muddler? Use the handle of a sturdy wooden spoon or ladle.
