Truth be told, I am not a big drinker. Between illness and just wanting to feel sharp and energized, I discovered that libations and I are not BFFs. In the land of Paleo, some indulge and some don’t – there is no steadfast rule. But since my personal Paleo county is dry, I thought it would be fun to get a little creative.
Now just because this mojito isn’t spiked, doesn’t mean it isn’t great for a good time. In fact, as I prepared my Cinco de Mayo feast, I offered my photoshoot mojito to mi madre and she went back for seconds. Her words describing this liquor free concoction were “light and refreshing.” So drink up mojito lovers, no hangovers here!
