Two Short Glasses (Ingredients below are for the total of 2 drinks. Divide the following ingredients among 2 glasses, this isn't for each glass)

  • 2-3 oz unsweetened rum

One Tall Glass

  • 2 fresh sprigs of mint (about 6-8 leaves)
  • 1-2 teaspoons sweetener
  • 1/2 fresh lime, juice of
  • 1- 1 1/2 oz unsweetened rum
  • a few cubes of ice
  • 1/2 cup club soda


  • Mojitos are typically served in a tall glass. You can prepare this drink in a tall glass or two short glasses. 
  • Add the fresh mint, sweetener, and fresh lime juice to a glass or glasses.
  • Use a muddler and crush the lime, sweetener, and mint.
  • Add in the unsweetened rum. Stir. 
  • Add ice and club soda. Stir. Taste repeatedly and add additional sweetener, lime, or mint if you wish.



Keto Low-Carb Mojito Recipe Tips:

  • You can use less lime to save on carbs.
  • I recommend that you grab an actual living mint plant. They sell them at Trader Joe's for about $2. It comes with soil and needs sunlight and water. I prefer an actual plant over the store bought clamshells with mint because the mint is a lot fresher. The mint that is in the plastic clamshells at the grocery store has been pre-picked. It will be harder to muddle and also will not look as nice if you garnish the drink.
  • Make sure the mint is fresh and is bright green.
  • Taste repeatedly and adjust the drink as needed. If you don't want any sweetness in the drink, start with 1/2 a teaspoon of sweetener and work your way up until you've met what you like. You can always add additional sweetener, but it's harder to take back if you add too much.
  • Taste repeatedly for the lime and mint flavors as well. Adjust and add more or less as needed.
