Mojito Mocktail

Mojito Mocktail

Inspired by novelty drinks and the challenge of reworking a classic cocktail to make it non-alcoholic I experimented with strawberries mint and green tea replacing the rum with our favourite non-alcoholic gin. Minty and refreshing this will make a perfect summer mocktail.  In this recipe you have total control over how this drink tastes and looks. Add more berries for a deeper red mojito. Add more mint. Double strain to remove all the fruit or if you want a thicker drink let some of the macerated berries pass through the cocktail strainer lid into the glass. There is no end to how you can vary this mojito from berries to watermelon the choice of summer fruit flavour is yours. Enjoy your berry delicious mojito!
