Simple syrups are a great way to sweeten chilled beverages but they’re usually made with sugar. This sugar free syrup can be used to make light refreshments, especially this delightful orange mojito!
For the syrup:
In a small pot, bring the water and Sweet’N Low to a simmer and stir for a couple of minutes until the Sweet’N Low has dissolved. Remove pot from the heat and add the mint. Allow the mixture to cool then pour it into a bottle along with the mint leaves. Store unused portion in the refrigerator for up to a week.
To make the cocktail, add the rum and mint sprigs to a cocktail shaker and muddle them together using a muddler or the back of a wooden spoon. Add the lime juice, orange liqueur and 1/2 ounce of the skinny syrup along with a handful of ice cubes. Shake well and pour into a chilled cocktail glass. Top off with the club soda and a sprig of mint.
If you’re making a large batch, you can also leave out the skinny syrup and serve it separately so that guests can sweeten their drinks to their own taste.
