Happy Thursday Urbanites!
Today I have a short post about a yummy, fun drink: Family friendly (Virgin) Mojitos.

Here are the receipes:

#1) Quick and Simple:
(This is a glass by glass receipe, nice for when you're in the mood at home and don't need to make a big batch, or so that everyone can "customize" their own drink.)


  • 3-4 fresh mint leaves
  • crushed ice
  • ginger ale
  • 1-2 Tbs of course, dry (when possible) brown sugar

Fill glass about half full with crushed ice.  Add mint leaves, ginger ale, and sugar.  Stir and enjoy!

-Pretty easy, right?

#2) Strawberry Mojito:

  • 12 large limes, quartered
  • 20 large mint leaves
  • 7-8 medium strawberries
  • 3/4 cup to 1 cup sugar
  • Ice
  • 1 liter club soda
Add limes, mint leaves, strawberries and sugar to a sturdy pitcher. Use a long-handled muddler, French rolling pin or wooden spoon to muddle the ingredients until mint leaves and strawberries are pulverized and limes have released all their juices.
Add ice and club soda and serve immediately.
You can do everything ahead of time except the addition of ice and soda--do this just before serving. 

#3) Sherbet Mojito


Original recipe makes 14 cups:
  •  2 cups of Water
  • 1 1/2 cups of white sugar
  • 2 cups of mint leaves, chopped
  • 2 cups of lime sherbet, softened
  • 1 cup of lime juice
  • 1 cup of water
  • 8 cups of club soda
  • lime slices for garnish


  1. Combine 2 cups water and the sugar in a microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave on High for 5 minutes. Stir the mint into the water; let stand for 5 minutes. Strain and discard the mint leaves from the syrup; set aside.
  2. Stir the lime sherbet, lime juice, and 1 cup water together in a large pitcher until well combined. Pour the mint-infused syrup into the mixture. Add club soda and stir. Serve over ice. Garnish with lime slices.
Enjoy your refreshing mojitos this summer!
