A refreshing non alcoholic sparkling beverage made with fresh lime, mint, and carbonated water. It's perfectly refreshing on a hot summer day!
- 1 lime wedge cut in half so you have two pieces of lime. This just distributes it better in the glass.
- 1/2 tsp truvia
- 7-8 fresh mint leaves
- 8 oz carbonated water such as La Croix
- extra lime slices for garnish optional
squeeze the lime juice from the wedges into a glass, drop the wedges in as well.
Add truvia, or sweetener of choice
Add the fresh mint leaves, and using a muddle, or the end of a wooden spoon, gently muddle (press) the lime and mint.
Fill the glass with ice, and add carbonated water, or soda water.
Garnish with additional lime, lime twist, or mint leaves. Enjoy!
If you don't want to use Truvia as your sweetener, there are several options. Here are the measurements per 8 oz of soda water:
sugar- 1 tsp, honey- 1 tsp, swerve- 1 tsp, simple syrup- 2 tsp, THM super sweet- 1/4 tsp, pure stevia- such a small amount I can't put a measure to it. Try and taste.
Make it your own! If you like your mojito sweeter, add more, if you prefer it less sweet then cut back.
