In just 2 minutes you can make this ginger beer mocktail using only 3 ingredients. Refreshing, sparkling and slightly sweet with lime, mint & ginger beer this is a grown-up drink - just without the alcohol.
Add lime wedges and mint leaves to a lowball/whiskey glass. Squeeze the lime wedges a bit before adding, to get some of the juice out from the start. Then muddle lime and mint until you've gotten most of the juice out of the lime.
Add ice cubes and fill up with ginger beer. Decorate with a sprig of mint, and serve immediately!
Ingredient notes & substitutions
Fresh mint leaves - only use the leaves, as the stem can be a bit bitter
Lime - only fresh lime will do here
Non-alcoholic ginger beer - use Ginger Ale instead for a sweeter and less spicy version
Tips & tricks
Don't muddle too much or the mint can become a bit bitter - this is why I squeeze the limes a bit while adding them
If you don't have muddler use the handle of a wooden spoon instead
Make it sweeter and less spicy by using Ginger Ale instead of Ginger Beer
Make it a cocktail by opting for an alcoholic ginger beer, or add a shot of your favorite spirit
