WHAT IS A MOJITO?!

MOJITO IS A TRADITIONAL CUBAN COCKTAIL THAT COMBINES FIVE INGREDIENTS: WHITE RUM, LIME JUICE, SUGAR, SODA WATER, AND MINT. THE MIXTURE OF FLAVORS HAS MADE THE MOJITO A POPULAR SUMMERTIME DRINK.



WHAT INGREDIENTS DO YOU NEED TO MAKE RASPBERRY MOJITO?

For the Simple Syrup:

Sugar (for keto Friendly ’m using truvia natural Sweet)

Water

Simple syrup is the key to a good mojito, Liquid sugar syrup easily dissolves into the cocktail instead of sinking to the bottom like granulated sugar.



For the Raspberry Mojito:

Rum

Ice

Mint leaves

Simple syrup

Fresh Raspberries

Club Soda



Adding Fruit

A base mojito can be changed by adding different type of fresh fruits to the muddle step, if you can make a classic mojito, you can make any mojito.


Here are a few ideas for you for adding different fruits

2-4 Raspberries

2-4 Blackberries

2 Strawberry

3-4 Mango

2-3 Slice Kiwi (peeled)

¼ Cup frozen Fresh Blueberries


HOW TO MAKE RASPBERRY MOJITO?

1. Prepare your simple syrup by combining 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water and bringing it to a boil.

2. Stir to let the sugar dissolve and remove from heat. Let syrup cool.

3. In a sturdy glass, add mint leaves, raspberries, lime juice, rum, and simple syrup.

4. With a wooden spoon or muddler, muddle to extract juices from mint leaves and raspberries.

5. Add ice to the glass and top with soda water.

6. Garnish with more fresh raspberries, mint leaves, or lime slices.



SUGAR ALTERNATIVES:



Erythritol is a sugar alcohol and another popular low-carb sweetener that can be used in baking.

Stevia is made from the Stevia leaf; I like to use both the granulated and powdered version of this in my recipes.

Monk Fruit extract is made from Monk fruit, and this is another excellent alternative that is low on the glycemic index.
