I love mojitos and wanted to share my low-carb version!
- 1 oz. (2 tablespoons) lime juice or lime wedges from about a third of a lime
- 8 mint leaves
- Stevia extract to taste (you don’t need that much to make it sweet)
- 1 jigger (1½ oz.) white rum (80 proof) (you can substitute vodka if you are not a rum fan)
- Splash of club soda
Put mint, lime or lime juice, and sweetener into the bottom of a highball glass. “Muddle” by mashing ingredients together. Traditionally, a “muddler”, which looks like a miniature wooden baseball bat, is used to accomplish this. However, the handle of a wooden spoon or spatula can work as well.
