Over the last several months, many of our customers have requested that we consider making a Drink Skinny™ Mojito Mix. I absolutely LOVE mojitos! They’re so light and smooth. When someone mentioned it again on our Facebook page the other day, I decided it was a good time to share the mojito recipe I created using our original Drink Skinny™ Margarita Mix.
I can’t take full credit for this recipe. A customer sent me a version of a mojito recipe that she made with our mix a while back, and I played around with it. The result of my experimentation was a refreshing mojito with a kick–but not an overpowering flavor that makes it taste heavier than it should. The secret is in the spiced rum (one of my adaptations.) Most people use traditional rum in their mojitos (and if you really have an aversion to spiced rum, you could use it in this recipe as well) but I think the spiced rum takes the flavor up a notch without being obtrusive. Enjoy!
Drink Skinny ™ Mojito:
1/4 c. spiced rum
