Weekend Skinny Mojito Recipe

Just in time for the summer season our favorite ex-housewife Bethenny Frankel unveiled a skinny mojito recipe that’s just as good as the original but replaces the sugar with honey. Plus—as a drink choice mojitos do double-duty—they are packed with vitamins. A single lime gives you 32 percent of your daily Vitamin C needs and half a cup of mint provides about a third of your Vitamin C needs and 2 grams of fiber.






  • 1/2 lime
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 1/2 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp. gently warmed honey
  • 2 oz. clear rum
  • 4 oz. club soda
  • mint and lime for garnish


  1. With a long spoon or a pestle (from your guac-making mortar and pestle collection) muddle 1/2 fresh lime cut into six wedges in a martini shaker.
  2. Add 1 cup ice and 1 1/2 tbsp. lime juice.
  3. Combine 1/2 tsp. gently warmed honey, 2 oz. clear rum and 4 oz. club soda. Add this combination to muddled mixture.
  4. Stir all the ingredients together with your long spoon until they get cold. Strain the beverage into a glass filled with ice.
