Mojito Mojo

mojito-flavored water

A couple of weeks ago, the lovely and awesome Thalita of The Learner Observer posted a whole bunch of delicious recipes for creating flavor-infused water. I’ve always loved a bit of lemon or lime in my water, but why not try some herbs?

Well, that got me thinking about citrus + herb combinations. And my favorite one? Mint + Lime in a classic Mojito.

Boom! Mojito-Flavored Water!

And it doesn’t get much simpler than:


Add these to a pitcher, glass, drink dispenser, etc, with water. The longer you let the ingredients steep, the more robust the flavors become.

Now you’ve got a delicious, refreshing beverage to sip on warm summer days, nights, or whenever you can’t enjoy a real-deal mojito!

What’s your favorite natural way to infuse your daily 64-oz with flavor?

      That’s a great idea! I was wondering if I’d be able to replicate the flavors of other popular cocktails with fruits and herbs steeped in water. I’ll have to think on this some more 😉 I hope you got your G&T after your babies were born!!

        Great idea! There are loads of mocktail recipes around, but they’re often too sweet, or very high in calories (plus fruit juice can give a pregnant lady terrible heartburn!)…

        Oh yes, I am still making up for the gin-free 18 months (more if you include breastfeeding!) 😉

          Yea, the sugary mocktails can be a little too much! Your comment reminded me that I haven’t had a good G&T in a while… might need to do something about that!

    Hooray! I totally loved that post from Thalita, so of course, I’m diggin’ this, Emily. So simple, and yet it sounds so very yummy. I don’t do mixed drinks too often, but when I do, I love me a mojito. Might have to try this mojito flavored water…we can always use a bit of refreshment in this summer heat. #stillgettingusedtobeingafloridian

    See you at Haven…um…today! 😉
