Take a cocktail glass and add the mint leaves. Muddle for a few seconds to release the oils.
Add ice, about halfway, or as much to your preference. Add the rum or vodka, lime juice, club soda and diet 7up and stir for a few seconds. Stirring helps to mix the ingredients and chill at the same time. Enjoy!
Recipe Tips for Low Carb Mojito
Citrus Fresca Club Soda: This is my preferred brand of club soda, however you can use any of your favorite. Just make sure it is unflavored and sugar-free.
White Rum or Vodka: For best results, use your favorite unflavored white rum (such as Bacardi) or vodka.
Ice: If you don't like ice in your drinks, use a cocktail shaker. Fill it with ice (to chill), add white rum or vodka and lime juice, shake a few times. This chills the drink. Pour the drink in a highball or cocktail glass with muddled mint leaves, then top off with club soda and diet 7up. Stir a few times to mix everything together.
To make a Virgin Mojito, simply skip the rum, or vodka, and enjoy a refreshing and yum Virgin Mojito.
When muddling mint leaves, do it gently. Over muddling can make the mint leaves a bit bitter.
