Your New Summer Cocktail

Skinny Summer Mojito
This past Saturday my good friend Stefanie and I had a mission. We were determined to 1) spend the day relaxing by the pool and 2) enjoy a healthy cocktail while doing so. This is no joke, we may or may not have been at the liquor store at 10:45 am. As a disclaimer, we wanted to get the necessary ingredients first thing so we weren’t making a mid-day trip. That makes it perfectly acceptable to me.

Stefanie was the brains behind the drink and it was SO good that I can’t wait to make it again soon. We filled a pitcher with water and the crystal light mojito mix. Next up, adding the fresh mint, lemon and cucumber slices. The final step is up to you- either add the vodka (our choice: Rain Organic Cucumber Vodka- incredibly delicious) straight into the pitcher with the other combined ingredients, or pour servings of the pitcher mix into glasses and then top off with the vodka. Don’t forget to stir if you do it that way!
