With only 2g total carbs per mojito you will be enjoying these skinny mojitos any time you are ready to have a cool low carb beverage. Enjoy on a hot summer's day or invite your friends over for a dance party. Either way you enjoy these cocktails, they will fit into a low carb, keto and diabetic lifestyle.
Both cocktails are great for sipping and are very different in many ways yet they both give me that feel good vibe whenever I make them.

🥘 Ingredient notes
The fresh mint and lime juice it what gives this cocktail most of it's flavour and the sweetness of the simple syrup ties it all together.
- Fresh mint: that subtly sweet taste and cool sensation from the mint makes this cocktail extra refreshing on those hot summer days
- Lime Juice: giving this cocktail a little bit of sweetness with a side of tart and bitterness
- Simple Syrup: my easy simple syrup recipe is made with erythritol, water, xanthan gum and liquid stevia. A simple way to keep a jar on hand for any cocktail or dessert.
- White Rum: brings a light and little sweet flavour to this popular minty cocktail

📋 Substitutions and Variations
Mojitos can be made with different alcohols or no alcohol at all. Here are some of my favourite ways to enjoy them.
- Vodka - use vodka instead of rum. Some people enjoy mojitos with vodka instead.
- Strawberry - Add about 4 sliced strawberries to the cocktail shaker and make it a little more sweet and fruity.
- Cucumber - keeping it low carb while making it even cooler by adding some slices of cool cucumber to the cocktail
- Coconut - add 2 oz of coconut cream and make this a creamy coconut mojito, it's absolutely divine.
- Virgin - skip the alcohol all together and enjoy the same sweet and minty beverage without any booze.
- Soda: use any other sugar free or diet sodas you prefer like 7up, Ginger Ale, Fresca or even a flavoured zero carb sparkling water.
- Simple Syrup: If you don't have time to make the simple syrup you can easily just add your favourite low carb sweetener to your liking.
Looking for somethings else more refreshing. How about a low carb white sangria?
For the best flavours use the freshest mint you could find that way you will get the most intense mint flavours. Muddle the mint in the glass before adding ice but do it gently. After all if you don't like mint you likely won't be making this minty cocktail.
