Since I always have so much of it, I try to incorporate it into as many things as possible. It is great in plain water, on salads and even grilled with veggies and freshly squeezed lemon juice.
I just had to share this great recipe because why not start the day off with one of my favorite drinks! A day could not go wrong with this tasty treat.
If you're ever in my neighborhood, I would love to share so you can make your own morning deliciousness.
The traditional mojito is created with a sweet syrup flavored with fresh lime juice and crushed fresh mint. This citrusy nonalcoholic version also includes orange and grapefruit juices.
1/2 cup dark honey
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/2 cup firmly packed fresh mint leaves
2 cups fresh grapefruit juice, chilled
2 cups fresh orange juice, chilled
2 teaspoons grated lime zest
1 lime, cut into 6 slices
In a small saucepan, combine the honey and lime juice. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Add the mint leaves and remove from the heat. Steep the honey mixture for 5 minutes, then pass the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve placed over a bowl, pressing down lightly on the leaves with the back of a wooden spoon. Refrigerate the syrup.
