Cooling Virgin Mojitos
Makes 2 servings
1 can soda water (La Croix brand, for example; can use lime flavor)
-NO artificial ingredients, NO added sweeteners
1/2 - 1 lime (depends on how much citrus flavor you want)
12 mint leaves
1 full glass of ice
Stevia drops to taste
Start with 2 glasses. Place 6 mint leaves in the bottom of each glass and start mashing them with a straw or spoon (can be sliced too) to pull out all their flavor and essence.
Fill each glass half full with ice, cubed or crushed.
Squeeze lime juice from either 1/4 or 1/2 of a lime into each glass, then drop the lime pieces into the glass (can be cut up into smaller pieces). This step depends on your taste, whether you want to use 1/4 of a lime's juice or 1/2 for each glass.
Add 1/2 can of soda water to each glass.
Taste and add a couple of drops of stevia for more sweetness. Raw honey can be used also. While it will add sugar to the recipe, it will also add some probiotics and B vitamins if it's raw.
Stir and enjoy!
