I really enjoyed making the strawberry daiquiri a few weeks ago – so next I tried making a low carb mojito!

I really love cocktails but I rarely order them in bars or restaurants these days because the ones I like often have far too much sugar. But some cocktails are pretty easy to convert to a low carb version and this mojito is really refreshing!
The first step is to muddle the mint in a glass – muddling releases the mint oils and is essential for the flavor! You can muddle with a cocktail muddler or just use a wooden spoon! In a cocktail shaker, add some light rum, lime juice, sweetener and lots of ice. Up to you which sweetener you use – I’ve tried it with both granulated Splenda and granulated Swerve. I prefer the taste of Swerve but Splenda has fewer carbs! Liquid stevia would work well too – especially if you were making this without a cocktail shaker. Shake it all up and then pour it over the mint. Top up with club soda.Low Carb Mojito #lowcarb Click To Tweet
