The summer heat is turned up here in Philly so the need for a fabulous cocktail is dire! For the 4th of July, I am all about the cocktails, the grill and the menu so what will be on my menu as my signature cocktail – this Skinny Blueberry Mojito.
I can’t tell you how much I adore mojitos – more than likely it’s from my Florida days. In my opinion, there is nothing like a freshly muddled mojito with fresh lime, mint and a touch of sweetness. Every time I visit Florida, it is my cocktail of choice but since I moved to Philly, I don’t make them as often as I should. I clearly need to rectify that.
There is a plethora of sweet Jersey blueberries at the markets and, being that it is one of my favorite flavors, I thought – why not make a blueberry mojito but lighter on the calorie factor. When lightening up calories in drinks, I love using Sweet’N Low® because not only is it a zero calorie sweetener, but it adds that sweet touch and it’s diabetic friendly.
This cocktail couldn’t be easier to make. I added a bit of Sweet’N Low® sweetener to the lime and rum and muddled it all with fresh blueberries and mint. Add a bit of sparkling water and – viola – this Skinny Blueberry Mojito is a 4th of July sparkler!
To ring in the 4th, make this Skinny Blueberry Mojito for your guests and enjoy the fireworks!
