Skinny Mojitos

Mojitos are one of my favorite cocktails - so light, flavorful, and very refreshing. While fall is my favorite season and I've been enjoying fall cocktails, which I'll post later this week, I'm preparing for a much needed beach vacation. One sip of a mojito instantly places my mind on the beach.

Skinny Mojitos
·6 mint leaves
·1 lime
·4 oz club soda
·2 oz clear rum
·3 tsp sugar

Muddle mint leaves with juice from half of a lime and sugar. Combine remaining ingredients and shake in a cocktail shaker. Serve with remaining lime juice squeezed into a glass. 

Serves 2

Note: For a Skinny Blueberry Mojito, add a handful of blueberries to the mint and lime juice when muddling.
