BLACK VIRGIN MOJITO
I think I invented this drink when I was as little as a 10 year old.
I was bored of drinking my daily can of coke one day and so I squeezed in some lemon juice, threw in some torn leaves of mint.
Shake shake and tadaaaa!! Black virgin mojito was created.
Back then I had no idea what mojito was,let alone trying to pronounce the word correctly!
This is my best quick easy fix for summers.
P.S: Always use fresh ingredients.It makes a ton of a difference.
