The tang of the lime. The freshness of the mint. Just the right amount of sweetness. The tingling sensation of the sparkling water on the palate. The subtle scents tantalizing the nostrils. The green sprigs soothing the tired eyes. And one is in mocktail heaven. This caramelized lime alcohol-free mojito has everything that will spice up your summer evening together with minimum effort !
Yield / Serves
handful of mint leaves
4-5 tbsp sugar syrup ( or as per taste )
2 tsp sugar for caramelizing lime
salt to taste
Cut 2 of the lemons into two halves. Dip the flat side in the sugar and place on a non stick skillet .
Switch on the flame and keep it low. Cook till they caramelize . Take care not to burn.
Remove and keep aside till they cool down. Squeeze the juice into serving glasses.
Add a few mint sprigs to each glass.
Pour 1 tbsp sugar syrup into each glass. Add a pinch of salt.
Muddle the contents with the help of a muddler. Pack the glass with ice.
Top with chilled water taking care not to stir/move the contents else the ombre effect will be lost !
