Recipes for Virgin cocktails prepared at home
1. Margarita Virgin cocktail
We all know about Margarita. The birds on the branch sing about her, that's how famous Margaritas are. It would be okay with everyone to drink this magnificent drink even in virgin style. Margarita is a drink that is drunk while lying somewhere on the beach or enjoying the sunset. If you want to prepare it now, you will need several ingredients:
- Lime juice
- Root - Lemon Zest
- Soda Water (Tonic water is the best)
- Sweet syrup
- Pickle juice
- mint leafs
It would be best to use a long thin glass to prepare virgin cocktails at home. Moisten the rim of the glass with a slice of lime and dip in salt. Take a shaker and put the ingredients inside. You will use ½ cup Lemon juice, ¼ cup lime juice, ¼ cup soda water, ¼ cup sweet syrup, ¼ cup pickle juice. Shake it all in a shaker and pour it into prepared glass. Add 3-4 ice cubes and sprinkle with finely chopped mint. Put one slice of lime on the edge of the glass and you’re ready! You can finally serve your virgin margarita cocktail prepared at home.
2. Mojito Virgin cocktail
Like Margarita, we all know what Mojito is. We drank it on warm summer nights... Let's get ready for the guests before they come! You will need (these are measures for about 4 to 5 people):
- About 20 mint leaves
- 2 dl lime juice or No.05 Pure Green Juice
- Lime rings
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1l tonic water
- Cucumber juice if desired
Add about 10 mint leaves to the jug and add lime juice. Crush it all together to let the mint release its aromas. Add the honey and mix again until the honey is completely incorporated. Pour tonic water over it all, add lime rings, and the rest of the mint leaves.
It would be best if you added crushed ice before serving. The effect of crushed ice can be achieved very easily. Leave the ice briefly at room temperature (about 5 minutes max.). Then gather the bag with your hands so that nothing falls out and push the bag against a strong surface several times. For example, it can be a floor or wall. If you are still not satisfied with the result, a good old blender will also serve.
Also, put a few drops of cucumber juice as in the previous recipe. Separate a glass of some Mojito and try it!
