Mojito Sounds Cooler

This is the recipe for the virgin mojito…or ‘minty lime ginger ale’ but mojito sounds cooler 😎

So, I personally do not drink alcohol so after I tried a virgin mojito in Switzerland and again (much later) in South Africa, I knew it was going to be a drink I would need to try replicating for the hot summer days πŸŒΏβ˜€οΈπŸΉπŸ“



Virgin Mojito – Serves two



2 medium sized glasses
20 large, fresh mint leaves
1 lime
1 can of chilled ginger ale



Cut the lime in half, using one half for each glass, reserving one small slice for decorative purposes πŸ˜‰

Take 8-10 mint leaves, cutting them into chunks before adding into the lime juice.
Using a spoon, crush the leaves to help release their flavour.

Fill the glass half way with ice, pour ginger ale over, mix.
Garnish with the leftover lime wedge and enjoy!






I know this is a really simple ‘recipe’ … but isn’t that kind of the beauty of it? πŸ˜‰

It’s an easy, refreshing, summer drink, easily adaptable to ones own preferences.
More lime, less mint etc. etc.

I’d love to hear if you try it out, or share a picture and tag Jemstory!! β˜ΊοΈπŸŒΏπŸΉπŸ’Ž

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
