No Guilt Mojito on Reluctantly Healthy with Judy Greer
I had the pleasure of meeting and co-hosting an episode of Reluctantly Healthy with Judy Greer. We mixed up a sugar-free version of my no guilt Mojito and had a blast! – Angie
Host Judy Greer begins her New York series by visiting radio personality Angie Martinez, who mixes up a sugar-free version of a Latin favorite. Swapping agave for sugar is one reason this recipe has a lot to like. And another main ingredient does double-duty: Fresh mint promotes digestion and is a natural stimulant.
Ingredients & Method:
Angie’s No Guilt Mojito
- 1/2 lime, cut into 4 wedges
- 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
- 2 tablespoons torn mint leaves
- 1/2 teaspoon organic agave
- 2 ounces white rum
- 4 ounces club soda
- Fresh mint sprig (optional) for garnish
- Lime wedge (optional) for garnish
Fill a martini shaker with 1 cup ice. Add lime wedges, lime juice, and mint. Muddle lime and mint with a pestle or a long spoon until well-bruised and fragrant. Combine honey, rum, and club soda; stir gently to dissolve honey. Add to muddled mixture; stir until mixture is well-chilled. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice; garnish with mint and lime, if desired.
