The Skinny Mojito

by Destini on August 23, 2012

If you recall on Tuesday’s post, I mentioned my mom’s tropical party included mojito’s. Well what kind of food blogger would I be if I didn’t share this recipe with you. It is easy, and it isn’t full of sugar that will go to those hips!

Ingredients: 1 drink, but the mix can be used for 5-6

  • 1pkg of Crystal Light Mojito Mix
  • 1.5l water
  • 1.5oz of Vodka or White Rum *note below*
  • 5 mint leaves
  • ice
  • limes sliced in 8ths

Directions: Mix water and mix together in a large jug. In a tall glass, place mint leaves, slice of a lime and using a pestle muddle till leaves are slightly wilted. Top off with ice, rum and mix. Stir and serve!

Note: This is up to you, but any of the alcohol you use, just make sure it’s clear

So delicious! Cheers 🙂

This weekend I am off to my best friends cabin for a all girls weekend! We do this every year! Very very excited!

Hope everyone has  a wonderful weekend 🙂

Question: What is your favorite drink drink? As fun as mojito’s are, I can usually only have one. I’m a red wine girl!

Are these nutrition facts for just the mix, or the mix and booze? Thanks!

The mix and booze. The mix is a Crystal Light so it has minimum calories. 1/8th of the jug is only 5 calories. This is also depending on the size of glass you use.

And the rum is a white rum. Which will cause it to have fewer calories as well.

Hope this helps

I would be very happy if Mojitos were the only thing i ever drank – best cocktail

I’m having a tiny problem I can’t seem to be able to subscribe your feed, I’m using google reader by the way.

Thanks for the recipe. Having my girls weekend at the lake and this looks perfect. This is probably a silly question but do you use a single crystal light packet or the small tub that you normally make for pitcher sized drinks. Thanks!
