Description

Yes! You too can enjoy your cocktails while on a Low/No Carb Diet!!!!

Ingredients

  • 10 leaves Fresh Mint
  • ½ whole Lime
  • 1 ounce, fluid Lime Juice
  • 2 ounces, fluid Light Rum
  • 3 ounces, fluid Diet Tonic Water Or Diet Ginger Ale
  • 1 ounce, fluid No Carb Simple Syrup

Preparation

First of all, let’s start with the No Carb Simple Syrup…

In a small sauce pan combine 2 cups water and 3 cups Splenda Sugar Substitute (The kind you use for baking).

Allow this to come to a boil and simmer for 20 minutes.

Allow to cool and pour into the container of your choosing.

Refrigerated and sealed this should last you a month. (Mine never makes it that long because, well, I’m a Lush)

Now for the Mojito…

Fill a tall glass about a 3rd full with crushed ice.

Add the Mint (I typically use more Mint than a normal Mojito would…it helps mask the “Diet” aftertaste of the soda), Rum, Lime, and Lime Juice.

Muddle (If you don’t own a muddler, the end of a wooden spoon works just as well).

Once well muddled, add the Simple Syrup, more crushed Ice and the Diet Tonic or Diet Ginger Ale to fill the glass.

Without the Rum (Gasp!) this recipe makes a delightful summer cooler that even the kids can enjoy.

I always keep Splenda simple syrup in the fridge. If I am making a big batch of mojitos I throw the mint in the hot water with the Splenda and let it steep. That way you have minty simple syrup so you don’t have to muddle for each drink.
