Refreshing Cocktail Restaurant Reading

Last week L’Ortolan treated over 150 guests to an afternoon of food and wine tastings and stunning displays with the help of some of our most respected suppliers. Guests were welcomed with a refreshing non-alcoholic Mojito before being whisked off on a tour around the restaurant to sample the many delights on offer. Our guests were intrigued to know what made our Virgin Mojito so delicious, so we created a very simple recipe for you to follow at home.
