Peach Mojito Mocktail
Mojito is a traditional Cuban high ball. The summer drink consists of white rum, sugar, lime juice, club soda/sparkling water and mint leaves. It's a combination of sweetness, citrus and minty flavors.
Mojito Mocktail or Virgin Mojito is a summer drink sans alcohol.
Peach Mojito Mocktail has peach puree added to the above ingredients. This minty sweet and citrusy drink with notes of peach can be highlight of any party.
With the Mercury hitting high, peaches are available in abundance. You can make peach puree ahead of time and then this drink can be assembled in a jiffy. You can add 60 ml of white rum to the recipe to create fabulous Peach Mojito.
Two medium sized peaches weighing 200 gms gave me a 150 gms pulp. This is enough for two glasses.
This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled.
