A fun and easy twist to the traditional refreshing virgin mojito which gives a whole new level of fruity and smoky flavors.Traditionally, a mojito is a cocktail that consists of white rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water and mint leaves. But here, this mojito is purely non-alcoholic. Freshly picked mint leaves are muddled with some grilled pineapple chunks. Grilling the pineapple before preparing the drinks really brings out its sweetness and flavor up to fullest. Do not char the pineapples, but just achieve the golden brown delicious coloring on pineapple slices. This is a so easy to make mock-tail as just grill the pineapple slices, muddle everything and relish. If you are looking for a fancy mock-tail for your next upcoming party, then I can assure that the virgin grilled pineapple mojito is the ideal match. Made with a simple combination of ingredients, it tastes absolutely divine. So lets go in details as mentioned below.
