How to make non-alcoholic mojito

- Pound all the ingredients using a mortar pestle , and once they are well crushed and the mint has released its aromas, put the ice in the glass.
- At this point, add the tonic water and lemonsoda, making sure to distribute them in equal parts. Pour everything well and decorate as desired with the lime slices and mint. Good drink!
Non-alcoholic mojito: the variants
If you don’t like tonic water, due to its bitter taste, you can replace it with sparkling water, even if the final result may be too light. In this case you can use the soda instead.
And for another more delicious variant , try crushing fresh fruit together with mint! You will make a truly original non-alcoholic fruit drink! In fact, you just need to enrich the preparation with some crushed strawberries, pineapples, or with peaches or any other juicy and seasonal fruit. This preparation of Nojito, in fact, is very neutral so you can really indulge yourself in the combinations of this non-alcoholic but not at all obvious cocktail .

Of course, the cocktail, accompanied by ice and fresh fruit, should be consumed at the moment and as soon as it is ready. You can mix the liquid part in advance, leave it in the fridge for a few hours and complete the drink only when serving at the table or for an aperitif outdoors.
