1/2 Photos of Beer Mojito
A refreshing beverage and not only for beer lovers. I know, that this is not a true Mojito, but it is in the style of it. Peppermint leaves have a more intense flavour than other mint varieties and also have some bitter notes. This goes well together with the different malty and bitter flavours of many German beer varieties. If you prefer a non-alcoholic Mojito, look out for a alcohol reduced or non-alcoholic beer. Non-alcoholic beer is getting more and more prominent in Germany.
