Who loves a good mojito?? My only beef with a traditional mojito is they’re just too sweet for me. I’m not a fan sweet alcoholic drinks these days, especially not in the heat of summer. I wanted this berry mojito to be low in sugar, fresh, and super easy to whip up. I’m confident I achieved all three with this easy berry mojito recipe.
The muddled fresh blueberries, along with the fresh mint and lime slices give this easy berry mojito plenty of fresh flavors. Then, all you have to do is add a little rum and top it all off with your favorite sparkling water and you have yourself a refreshing summer drink. If it’s not sweet enough for you, you can always add in a few drops of stevia or even make a simple syrup and add a little of that in. As with most of my recipes, I try to make them as versatile as possible to meet the preferences of my readers. You could also use flavored sparkling water, like LaCroix or Spindrift if you wanted to add even more flavor while keeping it low sugar and low carb. So many choices!
We’re heading off for vacation next week, which also happens to be the week of 4th of July. I’m thinking this easy berry mojito will be the perfect addition to our 4th of July celebration. What do you think?
