Non Alcoholic Mojito: Kid Friendly

Spring is here and what sounds better than a mojito or a Non Alcoholic Mojito? While my daughter, Leigh and I were in Phoenix, we had the most fabulous meal at Deseo located inside the Westin Kierland Resort and Spa. Behind Deseo’s inventive concept and menu development is James Beard Award-winning Chef Douglas Rodriguez, widely-regarded as the inventor of Nuevo Latino Cuisine. Leigh had never had Latin Cuisine, and she was a little skeptical at first. We sat at the ceviche bar and watch the chefs create the most beautiful and wonderful plates one after the other. The service and the food is one of the best meals we had while in Phoenix. If you are in Phoenix or Scottsdale, it is a must dine. The staff insisted that Leigh try a Non Alcoholic Mojito which was filled with raspberries and fresh sugar cane. As soon as we got home, we tried to recreate this refreshing beverage. So here you go!

Blueberry Spritzer

Blueberries are a nutritional powerhouse. Recently Tufts University conducted a study of 60 various fruits and vegetables and found that blueberries rated the highest for their antioxidant capabilities. They have been linked to great health benefits and are said to help prevent alzheimer’s, prevent urinary tractions, improve aging and eyesight and more. This refreshing summery beverage is a cinch to make with only 4 ingredients. It’s a hit with adults as well as the kids.
