So you have lost weight, you feel great and your health has improved on the paleo diet. Can you enjoy an alcoholic beverage from time to time? Yes. The paleo mojito is a perfect option. Fresh mint and lime make this a refreshing drink with zero guilt. If you do feel guilty it will disappear after you finish your second drink.
This is easy to make once you have the ingredients assembled. Gather some fresh limes, fresh mint, rum (spiced is my favorite), stevia packets and club soda.
In a glass cut a lime into quarters and place in the bottom. On top of that place 3 to 4 sprigs of mint, rub them together to release some of the flavor. Sprinkle 1 or 2 packets of Stevia Sweetener In The Raw on top. Then use the Wood Cocktail Muddler to mush those together.
Add ice, a shot (or two) rum and top off with club soda. Stir.
This refreshing drink is sure to please. The rum is fermented sugar so most people can tolerate it pretty well. I enjoyed many Mojitos on our recent trip to Mexico, but we had fresh mint and limes in our recent Bountiful Basket and much prefer the mix without the added sugar (stevia in place of sugar). This may be one of my favorite Bountiful Basket Recipes.
We grow loads of mint outside our front door. I think this will be a favorite drink to cool off at the end of a hot day this summer. Plus, the kids really enjoy the virgin version of this drink.
