happy weekend everyone!
it’s time for a pomegranate mojito- sans rum. why? today is a beautiful winter day on the east coast, my site had a make over + now it’s time to celebrate! also, every Friday through December i’ll be featuring a “mocktail” to celebrate the holiday season. remember any recipe can be easily altered to the “real thing”…i’m going to trust that you guys will be able to figure that out.
i loveeee a good mojito. ok, i love the idea of a mojito. lime + mint are two of my favorite flavors. booze? not so much. i’ve never been a drinker, and i steer away because i want my mental + physical health to be the best it can be.
but, it doesn’t mean i don’t love to have a fancy beverage on occasion.
mojitos are generally a summer drink with sweet flavor. but this pomegranate version is still sweet, but a gorgeous color that is much more festive.
1. put juice of half a lime, 1 tsp. of agave nectar (rather than simple syrup), a few pomegranate seeds, + 2-3 mint leaves in bottom of glass. gentle “muddle” i use a wooden spoon.
2. fill glass with ice.
3. add 6 oz. fresh pomegranate juice.
4. top with seltzer (if not adding rum) – i use a lime flavored seltzer.
5. garnish with more mint, lime wedge + a few more pomegranate seeds.
cheers! let me know what you all think of the kaleinit.com’s new look in the comments below.
