Mocktail Recipe #12: Sparkling Mojito

Throughout the year, special occasions like Memorial Day, graduations, weddings, football games, and holiday parties provide opportunities to celebrate with family and friends. Unfortunately, celebrations can also lead to drunk driving, which is a top safety concern and the leading cause of traffic-related fatalities and injuries on America’s roads.

To help you plan safe, enjoyable parties, we asked AAA Ohio Auto Club associates to share their favorite mocktail recipes. The public voted on their favorites, and we compiled the recipes into a guide. In this series of blog posts, we present some of the winners. Enjoy!
