Myah’s Delight mocktail recipe
A local twist on the classic Mojito, the Myah’s Delight mocktail is about to become your new go-to non-alcoholic cocktail.
While the exact origins of the Mojito are up for debate, this classic and refreshing cocktail is said to have originated in the Cuban capital of Havana.
Since then, leading bars across the world have attempted to put their own spin on the Mojito, including non-alcoholic versions. In Melbourne’s CBD, the team at Bourke Street Green have used the traditional flavours of a Mojito to make this Myah’s Delight mocktail recipe.
Bourke Street Green Bar Manager, Rob Pierce, says it’s a take on the Mojito recipe that still gives you a hit of sweetness – without any alcohol.
“We’ve added in cucumber, apple, and topped up the sweetness with lemonade,” Pierce says.
Pierce does have some important advice when it comes to perfecting the Myah’s Delight, and it’s all to do with double straining once the mocktail has been shaken.
“The important thing when double straining is to use the net, as this will catch all the little bits of mint leaves that are smashed up in the cocktail shaker,” he says.
