Kiwi is one of the prettiest fruits according to me….so making summery delights using them was on my mind…and Virgin Mojitos happen to me my favorite drink. Hence, I combined the two and made these really delicious Popsicles! They are healthy and absolutely irresistible ๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜‰ lets get started with the easy peasy recipe…

Minty Pomegranate Mock Mojito

So…it’s getting hotter here in Mumbai for the last couple of days..and my lemony, minty, zingy pomegranate mock Mojitos are perfect to beat the heat! ๐Ÿธ ๐Ÿน They are super easy to make and total party pleasers!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

I first made these last year coz I absolutely love Virgin Mojitos served at most cafes / lounges… Reason being am I teetotaller! And so is Mr. Polkapuffs โค๏ธ (match made in heaven, right) I wanted to make them at home in the summers and thought why not add some fresh fruit juice and make pretty and healthy. So squeezed some fresh pomegranate juice and got going…

We don’t consume alcohol by choice and it works for us! Some people have hinted that’s it’s boring, well if drinking yummy, pretty, healthy stuff is boring…them God help me! I want to be boring all my life! ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜œ LOL!

Anyways, so made these again yesterday evening for the two of us..it looked nice so got clicking and planned to share it here today. It’s really simple …just mixing a few ingredients and you’re good to go.

So here goes the recipe … โ˜บ๏ธ

Yield: 2 servings (short glasses)

Equipments: a mortar pestle, a juicer (if using freshly squeezed pomegranate juice) a blender (to crush the ice)

Ingredients:

2 lemons wedged into 4 pcs each

1/2 cup fresh mint leaves

5 tbsp sugar syrup (same as the one used in Indian sweets)

200ml Sprite

1 cup crushed ice cubes

1/2 cup pomegranate juice (fresh or canned)

Method:

Muddle the mint leaves and lemon wedges in the mortar pestle (save some leaves n lemon slices for garnish). Crush the ice cubes in the blender but make sure it still has some ice chips / rough chunks in it.

Choose the glasses you want to use for serving these babies… Add some crushed ice, top it up with half the muddled mixture (serves 2 hence using half the quantity). Add 2.5 tbsp of sugar syrup in each glass, add 1/4 cup of the pomegranate juice and top it up with approx 100ml Sprite! Add the garnish and some more ice chips.. Served chilled! ย ๐Ÿน๐Ÿ‘Œ ๐Ÿ˜‹

Hope you will enjoy these as much as me and my hubby did! ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
