Mojito is a famous Cuban drink that is primarily made using white rum, lime juice, soda, mint, and sugar. Though, when I make Mojito, I avoid using white rum as my kiddo drinks it as well. Yesterday, we had a small meet up with my BFFs and I served them some fresh, chilled Virgin Pineapple Mojito. My BFFs definitely liked it, but to my surprise, it was liked by the kids as well. Made simply by using pineapple juice, mint leaves, club soda, sugar, and lemon wedges, Virgin Pineapple Mojito is an absolute refresher! We mostly tend to believe that Mojito can be relished only in pubs, clubs, or restaurants. However, it is a misconception because despite thinking otherwise, I could easily prepare Virgin Pineapple Mojito at home and it turned out to be exceptionally good. If you are a big time fan of coolers, then you would most certainly like sipping Virgin Pineapple Mojito at the end of the day!
