Time required: 1 hour+
1 liter cold sparkling water
1 lime cut into slices
1 lime juice
1 lemon juice
2-3 tbsp of fresh mint leaves
1-2 tbsp of agave syrup (or sweetener of choice)
- Make the blue ice using water and butterfly pea powder. Add 1 to 2 tsp of butterfly pea powder to the water and stir very well. Pour into ice molds and freeze.
- Throw slices of lime into a jug, add mint leaves and a splash of water (if you’re using sugar, add it now, too). Mash everything together- it helps to extract the flavor of mint and lime.
- Pour the sparkling water, add agave syrup and stir. You can chill your drink in the fridge before serving.
- Crush the ice cubes in a blender. Fill the glasses with crushed ice, pour your drink and watch the color-changing magic!
Prepping for a proper mojito?
