Yes, my first recipe post.
Inspired by the summer coming, I've created a virgin "mojito"-type recipe that's light and refreshing.
This makes one drink.
I used spearmint from my garden...
Step 1: Gather Materials. Needed are pineapple chunks, a lime slice, some mint leaves, seltzer water, sweetener and ice.
Step 2: Place everything but the water and ice into a glass.
I only used one chunk of pineapple, use more for stronger flavor. There are no "exact" measurements here!
Muddle together with a wooden spoon, nothing fancy needed here! Muddle everything 'till the pineapple is completely mashed with the mint and lime. Now, pour in 6 oz. of seltzer water.
Strain over a fine sieve into a measuring cup.... (I don't like to have things floating in my drinks! :) )
And pour the liquid from the measuring cup back into your original glass (you can quickly rinse out the original glass after straining to make sure it's completely clean, yes I am a little OCD!)
You will have a pale mint green drink. Now, add your sweetener; I used only a teaspoon of raw cane sugar. If you like it sweeter, just sweeten to taste. Again, no exact measurements here!
Top with ice. And maybe a skewer of mint, pineapple, and a lime slice to top it off!
