Lime Mint Soda_ Drink It Up On St Patty's Day

Since we drink very little juice and no soda in our house (my husband actually gave up soda 20 years ago) our kids primarily drink herbal tea or sparkling water which we make ourselves. They are happy with that for the most part, but once in a while I like to make them something special like Horchata, Kiddie Cocktail, or a homemade soda like today's recipe.

St Patty's Day is almost here and so I came up with a special holiday themed cocktail that is a take on a mojito (but no booze -- this is family friendly!!). With fresh mint and lime juice and just a touch of honey for sweetness, this virgin cocktail is a real treat for your Blarney celebration or any time of year when you want something healthy and homemade to replace that soda craving.

    This was such a great drink! We do not let our kids have pop often, but this is an awesome alternative! The four of them kept saying, \"Thanks, Mom, for letting us have pop.\" Wink, wink ;)
