Drink Recipe: Mojito


Who doesn’t love refreshing Mojito in the summer? NY Times bestselling author and celebrity natural food chef, Bethenny Frankel gave us a health-conscious, guilt-free cocktail option with her Skinnygirl Margarita, and also created this low-calorie (153 per serving) Mojito for figure-conscious Daisy Fuentes … but the rest of us can enjoy it too!)

• 1/2 lime, cut into 6 wedges
• 1 1/2 tablespoons lime juice
• 2 tablespoons torn mint leaves
• 1/2 teaspoon honey, warmed
• 2 ounces rum
• 4 ounces club soda
• Fresh mint sprig (optional)
• Lime wedge (optional)

Fill a martini shaker with 1 cup ice. Add lime wedges, lime juice and fresh 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. Bottoms up!
