Virgin Mojitos

Virgin Mojito Recipe
Yield: Serves 4-6


1 liter Club Soda
2 cups water
2 cups sugar
6 limes
50-60 mint leaves


1. In a pot, heated to low-medium, add your 2 cups of water, 2 cups sugar, and 20-30 mint leaves. Zest two of your limes into the pot, half the limes, and squeeze the juice in the pot. Let it all simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Let mixture cool for at least 3-4 hours. This also can be made the day before and refrigerated. 
2. Slice up the remainder of your limes in quarters.
3. In your pitcher, muddle the remainder of your mint leaves.  Pour in the mixture you made in the pot. Gently squeeze your lime slices as you drop them in the pitcher. Top with the liter of Club Soda. Serve immediately and enjoy!

This is a delicious and has a nice light fizz that helps you forget you can't (or just aren't) drinking an alcoholic beverage. Yum Yum!!
