Roohafza refreshing mocktail, a drink made with mint and lemon in virgin mojito style. I have used plain soda for this drink.
As I have said earlier, I didn’t like the plain roohafza with water. I like it with milk as in mohabbat ka sharbat. So I thought of adding mint and plain soda like in virgin mojito. It was really refreshing for this summer. It’s very simple to prepare if you have chilled soda and few fresh mint in stock.

I have a mint plant growing in my balcony to get few fresh leaves for my cooking. I always add mint to biryani and like few in my veg kurma, which I make weekly once for Aj’s lunch box. Since I use only very few numbers, buying mint leaves always ends up in wastage. Not a big fan of mint chutney and thogayal, atleast not that often. So I decided to grow few plants so that I can get few when needed. And it is quite handy for me.

- Muddle little ice and mint leaves until you get the flavour of mint. Top with more ice. Add roohafza, lemon juice.
- Top with chilled soda. Mix gently, Garnish with lemon wedge/ slice, fresh mint sprig and serve.
Serve/ enjoy immediately. Though I have used thick straw, a thin straw will be apt for this as they serve in restaurants.
