Refreshing Green Tea Mojitos – Just in Time for Cinco de Mayo

Green Tea Mojito, Cinco de Mayo cocktail


In honor of Cinco de Mayo, here is a green, low-carb twist on a Cuban classic.

While its potent antioxidant properties and numerous health benefits are well-known, many people are unaware of how well green tea works with mint and rum to make a deliciously refreshing low-carb cocktail, perfect for any warm-weather fiesta.


Green Tea Mojitos

(ingredients for 1 drink)

1    tablespoon freshly squeezed organic lime juice

4    large organic mint leaves

2    teaspoons of organic xylitol crystals  or 2  pinches of organic stevia

3    ounces of brewed organic green tea, cooled to room temperature

1    ounce organic white rum


Muddle the lime juice, mint leaves, and natural sweetener together in a Collins glass until the leaves bruise lightly and the flavors release.  Fill the glass three-quarters full with ice cubes, pour in the green tea and rum.  Stir thoroughly and enjoy.


Feliz Cinco de Mayo!
