Strawberry Lemon Passion Mojito Mocktail
As the days are getting longer and warmer, I am beginning to taste barbecues, beach days, and fruity drinks. While spring weather is not quite here yet, we were blessed to have some sunny, warm weather over this past weekend. For that reason, I couldn’t help but make a fruity mocktail for my family and I to enjoy! While I was at Shoprite, I was thinking of what would make a good mixer for the fruity mocktail — I saw Welch’s Passion Fruit Refrigerated Cocktails and had to grab it! This juice screams springtime with it’s tropical flavors and it makes a delicious mocktail mixer. I replaced the rum for club soda for a bubbly non-alcoholic version so my little brother could enjoy it as well (he is 16 years old)! I decided to do a clench thirsting twist on the typical mojito and use lemons instead of limes for a brighter, sweeter flavor. I made this fruity Strawberry Lemon Passion Mojito Mocktail in just under 5 minutes!
