Mojito Spritzer Recipe
For me, there's nothing more summery than an ice cold Mojito Spritzer. When the weather is warm, the bbq's are grilling and the days are perfect to go to the pool or the lake (or the beach), then it's time to mix up a mojito spritzer and enjoy it with friends, family, and neighbors.
To keep this recipe family friendly I'm making it a Mocktail Mojito Spritzer, but trust me when I say this is even more delicious than the one boozed up + it's even more refreshing, making it even better for the hot summer days. I also really love how easy is to whip it up and prepare, I mean it looks like if it was made by a professional cocktail shaker!
The secret to making it taste super fresh is in muddling the mint. When you muddle the mint you are releasing all the oils that are the responsible for carrying the flavor. So this basically means you get even more mint flavor in your Mojito Spritzer. Then just squeeze some limes, add a generous splash of soda and you are all set.
To garnish it I used a sprig of mint and I have to say I'm in love with the result. It's a super easy way to decorate drinks and makes them look really polished up.
Another great tip is to make a couple of mint ice cubes chill your Mojito Spritzer. Just freeze up some mint leaves with water in ice cube trays and that's it. The result is really amazing and the mint releases more flavor while the ice starts to melt. This is a great idea especially if you have plans to make a DIY drink bar for a party since it really amps up the wow factor.
