Virgin Clementine Mojito

Christmas and New Year’s Eve are traditionally two days where a lot of alcohol is consumed. So when my friend suggested I make some mocktail recipes, I was immediately sold on the idea. I created 5 mocktail recipes, 4 very easy ones and one requiring a bit more effort. This Virgin Clementine Mojito is such a lovely twist on the original mojito. We are keeping the mint, sugar and lime but we’re also adding some clementine juice and little bits of clementine. I absolutely love clementines in Winter so they just had to be part of this Christmas mocktail. Make sure to stock up on crushed ice & clementines cause everyone will want more after drinking their first glass!
