If you are looking for something on the sweet side but don’t want to rack up those calories, then why not try this traditional Cuban highball and a rum drinkers favorite, the Mojito. A minty delight that will only cost you a measly 168 calories and be a refreshing addition to your evening.
The juice of 1 lime
1 tsp granulated sugar
A small handful of mint leaves, plus an extra sprig to serve
60ml white rum
Soda water, to taste
Muddle the lime juice, sugar and mint leaves in a small jug, crushing the mint as you go – you can use the end of a rolling pin for this. Pour into a tall glass and add a handful of ice. Pour over the rum, stirring with a long-handled spoon. Top up with soda water, garnish with mint and serve.
