Virgin Garden Mojitos

Virgin mojitos1

We’re fairly new to growing any form of produce so the novelty still hasn’t worn off. There’s  only so much that you can grow on a balcony with summer temperatures reaching over 50 degrees C but luckily mint and limes seem to flourish.

This is a really simple juice, very typical of the Middle East as it’s such a refreshing, thirst quenching combo.


  • 2 limes
  • 2 large handfuls of mint
  • 200ml of freshly squeezed orange juice (unfortunately not from our orange tree yet)
  • 1 Tbsp agave nectar – can be substituted with honey
  • Ice – probably around 20-25 cubes
  • A thumb sized piece of ginger
  • Water – add as you go along.

Start by adding the ice to your blender, then pick and wash the mint leaves, squeeze the juice from the limes and add the orange juice, ginger and agave nectar.

Next, blend on a medium setting adding water if needed to get it going. Taste and add more agave if needed.
