A Refreshing “No”-jito

A Refreshing “No”-jito

Recently we went to a Cuban restaurant and they are known for these amazing mojitos.  However, I was with my kiddies and wasn’t in the mood to imbibe.  Instead, I got a no-jito…which is essentially all the ingredients of a mojito with no rum.  It was so refreshing that I decided I would attempt to make my own version of this no-jito when I got home. I know there was fresh mint, limes, sugar and seltzer. Since I’m making a larger batch to keep in the fridge, I used cold water instead of seltzer. I’m real funny about flat seltzer :

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of fresh mint leavesIMG_2083.JPG
  • 3 limes
  • 6 cups of water
  • 3 Tbs of Organic Agave

Directions:

  • Cut the limes into quarters and squeezed the juice in to the blender
  • Tossed the wedges into the blender itself.  
  • Add the mint leaves and water into the blender.  
  • Pulse the blender 10times or till the ingredients looks like its been roughly chopped.  
  • Then strain the mixture out into a pitcher.  
  • Stir in the agave, you may add more or less to your taste.
  • Serve over ice (options garnish with mint and lime).

Makes 3 (2cups) servings.
