Virgin Plum Mojito

Virgin Plum Mojito

Refreshing, bright, and sweet, this plum mojito is best enjoyed on a hot summer day to cool off!  Easy on the stomach and good for digestion, this virgin drink would also make a great appetizer before any dinner 😊

Serves: 1

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cooking time: 0 minutes

What (your ingredients):

½ plum

6-8 sprigs of mint

Juice of ½ lime

½ teaspoon agave

2 cups sparkling water

Ice

How (your directions):

Slice ½ of a plum into 2 pieces and place in tall glass.  Add mint, lime juice, and agave. 

Using a muddler or the end of a wooden spoon or spatula, muddle the plum and mint until the plum’s juices are released and mint is slight broken apart (~30 seconds).

Add 3-4 cubes of ice and top with sparking water.

Enjoy your refreshing drink immediately!

Why (the science):  Fresh mint is great for digestion, as it fights inflammation in the stomach.  Don’t be afraid to chew on the mint leaves once you’ve sipped all of your mojito!
