½ Handful of Fresh Origins Petite Stevia™

½ Handful of Fresh Origins Mint Spearmint Tops

1 lime

3 ounces club soda

2 ounces white Rum

1 ounce of Chambord Raspberry Liqueur

Cut lime into quarters, squeeze into glass and drop slices in. Tear up Stevia and Mint leaves and drop into glass. Set some aside for garnish.

Take a muddler and grind the lime and Stevia leaves in the bottom of the glass. Fill the glass to the top with ice. Then mix the ice with the Stevia and lime solution.

Next, add rum. Add the club soda now to the top of the glass. Add Petite Stevia™ and a lime wedge to the top of the drink to garnish. Toss in a straw and serve!

*Note: regular Mojitos require simple syrup or sugar in the mix, however using our sweeter than sweet Petite Stevia™ is a fresher and healthier substitution! This low calorie drink is great for dieters and those just trying to eat healthy.
