It’s thirsty Thursday again and we’ve been on a rum kick. Last week it was re-imagining the classic New Orleans cocktail THE HURRICANE (see recipe here). We cut the sugars by one-fourth (even gave a sugar-free option, aside from the rum that is) and cut the calories by half. And all without losing any of the flavor. We even added some healthy antioxidants like pomegranate, acai and the coffee fruit extract in the excellent Bai 5 Bubbles drinks. Of course, we also taught you how to make a “Bermuda Triangle Hurricane” by floating some 151 on top. Deadly, but delicious…you’ll definitely want to pick up some Intox-Detox here… (save 35% with code “hangoverssuck35”)
This week it’s sugar-free Mojitos for a taste of that Miama-Cuban vice. Crisp, minty, refreshing and without all the extra sugar to make your hangover awful. It’s also diet-friendly, so you won’t be working off a few drinks this weekend for weeks to come.
Sugar-Free Mojitos Intox-Detox Style
- 1 to 1 1/2 oz Cruzan light rum
- 1/2 Lime juice (fresh-squeezed or not from concentrate)
- Zevia Lemon-Lime or Bai 5 Bubbles Sulawesi Limon
- La Croix Lime
- 8 to 10 mint leaves
- 3 lime wedges
- 2 packs Truvia
Muddle 2 lime wedges with the mint leaves for a minute or two. Add 2 packs of Truvia and lime juice and muddle a little more. Pour one splash of Zevia or Bai 5 Bubbles until it sizzles to bring out the flavors. Add ice to the top of a tall glass and pour in rum. Fill with half and half La Croix Lime and the Zevia or Bai to the top. Stir or toss lightly in shaker cup. Garnish with remaining lime wedge and a sprig of mint leaves. Enjoy in the sunshine with a few friends, preferably near a beach!
*Increase or decrease rum and lime to taste. Some like their drinks fresher or stronger than others.
*Create new fruit variations with other Zevia or Bai flavors like black cherry, strawberry, grapefruit or orange.
When it comes to amazing yet simple classic crafted cocktails, you can’t beat this virtually sugar-free mojito!
