Summer Livin' - Skinny Mojito Recipe
Usually I’m here to share a life story or a lesson learned, but today, I am coming at y’all with some happy hour inspiration! Greg and I inherited his grandmother’s house, and along one of the exterior walls in the backyard, there is a giant mint patch. Did you know that mint is actually an invasive species? I end up pulling it from all over our garden, but there is one reason that I don’t pull up the whole patch altogether, and that my friends, is the mojito.
To me, a mojito is the epitome of summer. It’s light and refreshing, and goes down like water. I love making this recipe when we have friends coming over, because it’s easy and serves a lot, plus using fresh mint to garnish makes it look super fancy.
Since we are all following our slim down plan to the T, and aren’t consuming a single gram of sugar, you can use stevia to place the sugar, just make sure to adjust the proportions. In the case that you’re making this for a friend, and want to use real sugar, wink wink, make sure you use very hot water so that it completely dissolves before you add any of the other ingredients. This is my trick to making a super easy simple syrup!
