Bethenny Shrinks Your Mojito
A Skinnygirl take on the sugary summer staple.
First there was the Skinnygirl margarita, and now, behold: the Skinnygirl mojito!
"Cool down with this minty drink," Bethenny Frankel writes on her website. Now that the warm weather's finally rolling back into New York City, B's sharing the recipe for her latest guilt-free cocktail concoction with her legion of followers.
Here's what you'll need: half of a lime, one cup of ice, one and a half tablespoons of lime juice, half a teaspoon of gently warmed honey, two ounces of clear rum, four ounces of club soda, and mint and lime to garnish.
Take notes: "In a martini shaker, use a long spoon to muddle 1/2 fresh lime cut into six wedges," the Bethenny Ever After star says. Next add your ice and lime juice, and "combine 1/2 tsp. gently warmed honey, 2 oz. clear rum and 4 oz. club soda. Add this combination to muddled mixture."
For the final touches, Mrs. Hoppy instructs, "Stir until well chilled. Strain into a rocks glass filled with ice." Presentation is key, so she adds, "Garnish with mint and lime."
If you're making, we're partaking.
