I’ve never been a mojito lover because most of the places that I have tried them, they were pre-mixed and not fresh. This past weekend, for Father’s Day, we had a wonderful barbecue by the pool and I decided to make some fresh mojitos, Jamie style. I used flavored Bacardi to add a little raspberry flavor and used Truvia instead of sugar. I was delightfully surprised by how refreshing these were. Not too sweet but definitely the perfect pool-side drink.
- 1 bunch fresh mint, cleaned
- 1/3 cup Truvia
- 4 lemons
- 4 limes
- Ice cubes
- 1 (750 ml bottle) light rum (I used Bacardi raspberry for extra flavor)
- 1 liter club soda
In a large pitcher, muddle mint sprigs with Truvia until well combined. Add ice, rum and club soda and stir together. Add lots of lemon and lime wedges. Pour into glasses, and add a lime for garnish. Enjoy!
