How is it Wednesday already? Spending Monday driving back from NH has thrown off this whole week and generally we save the celebrating for Friday, but hey, why not celebrate a Wednesday?
Thanks to a little non-alcoholic bar in Provo I have a slight obsession with virgin mojitos and if you’ve ever been to Carabbas with Ben, it is quite evident he can put away Italian sodas faster than they can make them. I decided to use our new beverage of choice to create our two favorite specialty drinks to unwind tonight (yes, I literally took these pictures 20 minutes ago and we will be making many more to drink as the evening continues).
The combination of fruit, lime, and mint satisfies my taste buds like nothing else. I couldn’t find mango syrup so I tried grenadine for this mocktail and I loved it! I mixed it with lightly flavored sparkling lemon water but I wish their other flavor options had been in stock. Lime would have been perfect.
- 1 part Grenadine Syrup
- 3 parts Sparkling Water (I used this lightly flavored bottle for $1.08)
- juice of 1 lime wedge
- fresh mint leaves for garnish
**disclaimer: Ben didn’t love these nearly as much as I did until I added a little more lime – apparently grenadine isn’t for everyone.
- 1 part Vanilla Syrup
- 2 parts sparkling water (I used this cheap option)
- 1 part whipping cream
- whipped cream for top
- striped straw
**The striped straw is not optional on the ingredients list for this little drink. Everything tastes better out of a striped straw.
You can see the ingredients I used above (lime, mint, and cream not pictured)^^
