In my mocktail creation experimentation, I have been trying to create drinks that are not loaded with sugar. I love lime and mint, so a virgin mojito seemed the obvious choice. I love it! So here is my twist: Add blueberries for the wonderful health benefits and sugar-free red bull instead of club soda. The old “red bull gives you wings” tag line is what makes it a flying mojito. Please do not message me about the ways red bull is also not good for me. I am aware, but one vice at a time please 😊
If you want to try a flying blueberry mojito, start with an ounce of simple syrup and a little of the sugar-free red bull. Add some lime wedges, mint leaves, blueberries and muddle them in the syrup. Add a bit of lime juice, the rest of the sugar-free red bull, top it off with water and stir. You can stir in a few more blueberries if you want and garnish with a lime wedge and a pretty sprig of mint. The end result is a fun, pretty, relatively healthy drink that will leave you satisfied and happy. Muddle your mocktail, not your mind.
