Who is ready for picnics in the park? We are! As spring begins to rear its head, and we’ve had a few days of nice weather, we feel it’s time to start preparing for those long summer days. Here we will be taking a closer look at our flawless non-alcoholic Mojito and how we’ve perfected the recipe.
Why is an Alcohol-Free Mojito The Best Drink For Spring?
First of all, it’s refreshing. We are all looking forward to that warmer weather where we can have long days spent in the sun, and what better way to combat that heat than with an alcohol-free mojito. With some ice cubes and a sprig of mint, a mojito made with our refreshing Dry Dragon is the perfect revitalizing beverage.
Another reason our Mojito alternative is the perfect summer companion is that it is alcohol-free. We all love to sit in a beer garden during the hot months, but did you know that alcohol can actually dehydrate you? Yes, it’s true. Alcohol is a diuretic, which means that it causes your body to remove fluids from your blood, at a much quicker rate than other liquids. That’s why it’s always recommended that for every alcoholic beverage you have, you should drink a glass of water. However, with our no alcohol Mojito, you don’t have to worry about feeling dehydrated. You can happily drink a Dry Dragon mojito all day long in the knowledge that you will remain both hydrated and refreshed.
Our Mojito will also leave you hangover-free! In the summer, we typically become really busy. Our social calendars begin to book up and we may find ourselves spending a lot more time around friends and family than usual. You want to enjoy your time in the sun and not worry about the dreaded headaches and other, awful hangover symptoms after a night of having a few too many. Sit back, relax and sip on an alcohol-free Mojito instead.
The Perfect Non-Alcoholic Mojito Recipe
To make this sublime serve, you will need:
- 25ml lime juice
- 125ml REAL Dry Dragon
- 10ml sugar syrup (or 10ml mint syrup, if available)
- Fresh mint leaves
- Ice cubes
As for the method, follow the below:
- Firstly, mix the lime and the sugar (or mint) syrup.
- Then, pour over ice cubes into a balloon glass.
- Top up with the REAL Dry Dragon.
- Gently scrunch the mint leaves to bring the fragrance forward and garnish to taste.
Of course, we recommend serving this cocktail on a hot day to really get the full, refreshing effect. If like many of us, you are planning to spend your summer lounging around in the garden, or at your local park sunbathing with a couple of tasty beverages, then this drink has got you covered. With the small number of ingredients which can easily be thrown into a cool bag, this cocktail is easy to make on the move.
Food Pairings For a Kombucha Mojito
Now we have the serve sorted, what about the food? In our Kombucha Mojito, we recommend using the Dry Dragon variant of our teas. This is because our Dry Dragon pairs brilliantly with fresh summer salads and green vegetables and fruits, which are the ideal picnic foods if you ask us.
Although we realise this isn’t always possible when out and about, we recommend serving our Dry Dragon in this recipe when it’s cold as this allows the fresh aromas to circulate before you start sipping!
