Virgin ginger & kiwi mojito

We are still in the festive mood, but realise that all the 'wining & dining' over December has taken it's toll on our waistlines... So we'll be the cutting calories with this refreshing and summery Virgin No-sugar Mojito ;)

Virgin ginger & kiwi mojito

Serves 2


10 cm fresh ginger, skin removed and sliced into coins
½ cup water
4 – 5 Canderel sticks
1 fresh lime
1 heaped tablespoon chopped fresh mint
1 kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced
500ml sparkling mineral water

How to make it

Combine the ginger, Canderel and water in a small pot.
Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
Cut the lime into small half wedges (16ths).
Using a mortar and pestle, bruise the lime wedges and mint. Divide between two glasses (along with the lime juice).
Pour half the Canderel and ginger mix (with the ginger slices) into one glass and the rest into the other.
Add three ice cubes and a few slices of kiwi fruit.
Top with sparkling water.
Garnish with a kiwi slice.

Serve immediately.
