Sugar-Free Mojito’s

20130715-222513.jpg

Mojito’s are one of my favorite drinks if not my favorite mixed drink but I really hate consuming all the sugar – bad hang overs and makes you feel stomach sick.  I’m not a big drinker to begin with so when I do actually drink I want it to be worth it.   I decided to order this one day but had asked the bartender not to add the sugar.  EVERY single time I order it, the bartender/waiter always look at me funny saying that mojito’s are sugar – right, exactly!! But don’t knock it til you try it!!  Last weekend I was in the Cape and wanted to attempt making them on my own…it’s def a work in progress, but I wanted to share this with you as this has become my favorite and signature drink!  This cocktail is refreshing (yes B, REFRESHING! :p) . And no, this is not paleo but I wanted to share in hopes that you would enjoy it as much as I do!  #paleowater

Ingredients:

White Rum
Mint Leaves
Lime
Club Soda
Ice

Directions:

Cut your lime and squeeze the lime juice into a mixing glass .  Take about a handful of mint leaves, the rest of the lime and muddle together.  Depending on how strong you’d like you drink – I only used 1 shot of white rum – pour whatever serving you’d like into the mixing glass with 1 cup of club soda.  Shake together with ice and DAS IT – enjoy it!!
