Whether you are Irish or not St. Patrick’s Day is a holiday to celebrate in all of your green glory. I personally am not much of a beer drinker so while green beer looks SO fun, it never tastes as fun as it looks. So for me that means it is time to get creative and make my own green drink which often ends up being one of my favorite cocktails – a low cal mojito!

Low Cal Mojito Recipe Ingredients
Which rum is your favorite? Like many cocktail recipes, the alcohol of choice is often interchangeable. Here, you can switch the types of rum you use for one you prefer, just be sure it is a white rum.
What makes the flavor in this recipe are two mixers, a lemon drop mixer, and a margarita mixer. You could and should use fresh fruit to garnish like a lime wedge or lemon wedge.
Some cocktails come with even more garnish than others but sometimes, those garnishes serve a purpose. You will need some mint sprigs to garnish but also to add a freshness to the drink.
Cucumber slices, agave, and club soda will also add to the freshness of this cocktail. What you will find is that this cocktail is perfect for hot summer days.
Low Cal Mojito Directions
Place lime, mint, cucumber slices, and sugar in a tumbler or highball glass and muddle.
Add ice to glass and pour the mixers over ice.
Top with club soda or flavored carbonated drink.
Stir and serve your low cal mojito immediately garnished with a cute cucumber shamrock.
We love low calorie cocktail mixers like these that we used in this low cal mojito recipe that leave out the high fructose corn syrup and use 100% real fruit juices, purified water, and organic agave syrup instead. If you do as well, be sure to try our favorite nearly NorCal margarita recipe!
