Non-Alcoholic Virgin Mojito Cocktail

When I say Cuba, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? Sun-soaked beaches? Dancing? Cigars?

 

How about Mojitos?

 

One of the world’s oldest and most popular cocktails, the Mojito is as Cuban as it gets. While the origins are a bit fuzzy, legend has it that a variation of the Mojito goes all the way back to a 16th Century cocktail called El Draque, which was named after legendary English explorer Sir Francis Drake. El Draque was a mix of cane spirit, lime, mint, and sugar, and was originally consumed for medicinal purposes. However, as Cubans perfected their white rums, El Draque’s original crude cane spirit was swapped for rum, and the name was eventually changed to Mojito.

 

Today, the Mojito ranks as one of the most popular cocktails around the globe. And why wouldn’t it? With a near perfect blend of fresh mint, sugar, citrus, and bold rum, the Mojito is as flavorful as it is refreshing. Of course, this cocktail is all about balance, which has traditionally created a challenge when trying to craft a Non-Alcoholic Mojito. But that’s all changed thanks to the complex bite offered by Lyre’s Non-Alcoholic White Cane Spirit. A perfect replacement for the traditional Cuban white rum, Lyre’s White Cane Spirit helps recreate that blend of oak, sugar, and coconut flavors, but without the alcohol. The result is a near perfect alcohol-free Mojito that sips just like the original!
