Mojito Mocktini {Mocktail Monday}

Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day we’re serving up this refreshing minty-green mocktail.

The sober Sistas are back with something Word-of-Wisdom-worthy to sip while you tune into our most recent episode of SiZ Radio. We hollered at Betsy Schow, author of Finished being Fat and learned the importance of leading by example when it comes to weight loss support. Don’t eat pizza all up in somebody’s face while telling them they need to go on a diet…umm kay. We also chatted with Mark Abernathy from the band The Sabre Rattlers, about his upcoming hymns album and how he’d like to see us Latter-day Saints sing with our souls.

Mojito Mocktini

Ingredients (Yields 1 Mocktini)

  • 5oz Ginger Ale
  • 1/2oz Key Lime Juice
  • 16-20 Mint Leaves
  • 1 TBS Sugar
  • Ice for Cocktail Shaker
  • Green Sugar to Rim Martini Glass
  • Extra Mint to Garnish Rim
  • Green Food Coloring
Utensils
  • Cocktail Shaker
  • Measuring Cup
  • Measuring Spoons
  • Muddler
  • Martini Glass
Directions: Muddle mint leaves, sugar and key lime juice together. Fill cocktail shaker about 1/4 with ice, scrape muddled ingredients onto ice in shaker, pour ginger ale into shaker. Shake over sink (carbonation in ginger ale will cause top of shaker to lift). Pour drink into already rimmed and frosted martini glass (instructions below). For slightly greener color for St. Patrick’s Day, dip a toothpick or cocktail stirrer into green food coloring and stir into drink (very little food coloring is needed). Garnish with mint.

Rim and Frost Martini Glass: With clean finger coat rim of Martini glass with key lime juice. Place green sugar on plate. Dip or roll coated rim of glass into sugar. Place glass in freezer until ready to serve drink. (We like to frost our glasses for at least 30 minutes.)

Cheers and try not to get pinched! Do people really pinch folks if they’re not wearing green? (Cause we will fight you if you try to pinch us.) Doing anything festive for  St. Patty’s Day?

Love One Another,
Sista Beehive & Sista Laurel

    This one is really simple, it’s for when you are feeling for mojito flavors but don’t want the “salad” in your glass…lol. We’ve got a good summer mojito recipe coming soon too.
