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.
Here you go!
- 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
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!
