Lemon and mint leaves have always been to our rescue for acidity (acid indigestion/pyrosis) or upset tummy. Now, when you face these, try this.
Juicy Lemon - 1 Pcs (Big)
Caster Sugar - 1.5 Teaspoon
Salt - 1 Pinch
Mint Leaves - 5 to 6 Leaves
Sprite - 1 Bottle (300ml)
Crushed Ice - 2.5 Cup or 1 GlassFul
Polo Peppermint - 1 Teaspoon
First Cut the lemon into triangular small pieces and extract some mint leaves. Take 2 Tablespoon caster sugar, if you don’t have that just grind the regular sugar. Additionally, take 3-4 Polo peppermint & grind them. Take a bit of salt in a small container. Once everything is ready. Take a tall glass. You can whatever you have but tall is better and looks awesome.
Tips: Lemon should be juicy and bigger one so that it is easy to squeeze. Mint leaves must be really fresh.
Add 5-6 lemon pieces in the empty glass. add 5-6 mint leaves. Use a muddler or a thick cocktail stirrer. Lemon juice must be properly extracted. According to me, this is the main part of making a mojito.
Add 1 teaspoon of crushed Polo peppermint and 1 teaspoon of caster sugar. Mix it well with a cocktail stirrer.
Fill half glass with crushed ice and add 2 small pieces of lemon and 2 mint leaves in between. Fill the rest half of the glass with ice and pour sprite in it.
Stir well with the straw. and you refreshing mojito is ready. Garnish it with some fresh mint leaves at the top that will give you a soothing aroma. Enjoy!!
