Sugar Free Mint Mojito

Mojitos are one of my favorite cocktails to have on a beautiful summer evening. But I don't like all the sugar that comes with it. So I've created my sugar free version of this refreshing cocktail, not as sweet but just as good!

Note: I use certified pure therapeutic essential oils for my recipes. I would not recommend using any other essential oil for recipes. Contact me to find out where I get mine.

No intent to endorse this rum. I just like it, and turns out its local! Love supporting the local folks.

Ingredients:

  • 1 shot clear rum
  • 2 drops Lime essential oil
  • 2 drops Spearmint essential oil (optional)
  • Fresh squeezed juice from 1/2 a lime
  • 1 cup Lime La Croix
  • 3-4 fresh mint leaves
  • Ice 

Put a few cubes of ice, rum, essential oils, and lime juice into cocktail shaker and shake it up. Muddle the mint leaves with 1/4 cup lime La Croix then add into the cocktail shaker and shake some more. 

Pour 3/4 cup lime La Croix over ice (in a cup of course!), add in the contents of the cocktail shaker. Add a lime wedge and a mint leaf and voila! You've got yourself a minty fresh cocktail without the sugar load!
