Poor Man’s Mojito

This is my favorite non-alcoholic drink recipe, which is a healthy rendition of a mojito – basically a mojito without the alcohol and sugar. I know, I know…..but you can drink it anytime, anywhere and it’s easy on your body and wallet.

Carbonated waterpoor man's mojito
lime, cut in half
a few mint leaves

1) Crush the lime leaves with a mortar and pestle, or just tear them before placing them in a fancy glass
2) Pour carbonated water over mint leaves
3) Squeeze lime juice into glass until desired limeyness is achieved

Tip: If you are used to drinking sugary soft drinks this might seem a bit tart to you, so feel free to add a little agave nectar or honey, at least until you can handle it straight up!
