Virgin Mojito is a very refreshing drink during summer. It is made using mint and lemon. Both Mint and lemon helps in improving the flow of bile within our body and breaks down dietary fats. Mint also helps relax cramped stomach muscles. Both these ingredients also cleanses and freshens our breath.
Lemons and mint both contain antioxidants that can naturally cure skin damages, thus avoiding application of various chemical lotions to your body.
There is a slight variation to this drink, so that everyone in your family, from kids to adults can enjoy. I always use fresh mint leaves which I grown in my Balcony Garden.
