If there is something that I absolutely loathe ordering from restaurants, it has to be the drinks. Most of them are just filled with ice and cost a bomb, so much that they make up half the bill when they hardly fill you up. Am I the only one who thinks like that? I am not trying to be stingy, but just practical… 😀 So as the last post for this week’s theme of “Restaurant Specials” for the Blogging Marathon #140, I had to choose a drink, and what apt that the notorious Mojito? The Indian pronunciation is in actual terms while the rest of the world reads it as “mo-hi-tho”. Indeed, English is a funny language… 😉

 

A Mojito is a lemon juice and mint based drink, topped up with a fizzy drink and usually shots of some form of alcohol. Nowadays, of course, it is sans the alcohol and in various colors and flavors, the most popular ones being the Blue Curacao and the Berry – at least in the eyes of my children. 😉 But my favorite has to be the passion fruit. I have used passion fruit concentrate, that is readily available in supermarkets. It is already sweet enough, so there is no need to add any extra sugar. The other ingredients you need are just lemon juice, some muddled mint leaves, lots of ice and usually a fizzy drink like 7-up to top up. If you are trying to be a little calorie conscious, then you can use sparkling water. Not much of a recipe, but always a best-selling restaurant menu option, so why not? 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 lemon
  • 5-6 mint leaves
  • 2-4 tbsp passion fruit concentrate depending upon sweetness
  • 5-6 cubes ice
  • Carbonated drink - 7up or soda as needed

Instructions

  • In a tall glass, squeeze out as much as juice from the lemon.
  • Chop the mint finely and add into the glass.
  • Add the passion fruit concentrate and ice and give it a good mix.
  • Top with soda (for less sweet) or 7-up (for more sweet) or a mix of both as you like.
  • Garnish with a mint sprig and a peice of lemon and enjoy immediately.

Notes

If using actual passion fruit, scoop out the fruit from one passion fruit. Combine with 2-3 tbsp of sugar syrup and repeat the rest of the process.
You can use any carbonated/ sparkling drink for a mojito. I have used only 7up in mine, but if you want less sweet, soda or sparkling water is a good option.
