Mojito Cocktail Recipe
Mojitos are popular Cuban style drinks involving rum, lime and mint. These were made popular by James Bond, in the movie Die Another Day, but of course mojitos have been seen and enjoyed in many other movies and situations!
Here's how you can make a delicious, low carb mojito!
Start with a tall, thin glass. Take a fork, and using fresh mint leaves, press them around on the inside of the glass. 3-4 fresh leaves should do the trick.
Next, add in 2 tsp Splenda, and 3 Tbsp of lime juice. Stir this together. Dump in a lot of ice. Now comes the rum! Rum is zero carb. Finally, add in some diet club soda.
Garnish with a lemon slice if desired, and enjoy!
The only real carbs here are in the lime juice. You get about 5 1/2 g of carbs for standard lime juice, for those 3 Tbsp. On the other hand, there are low carb lime juices out there - if you love mojitos it may be well worth it for you to find out how to get your hands on some!
So mix up some mojitos, put on your favorite Bond movie, and enjoy!
