To make a low-carb mojito, follow a traditional mojito recipe without the use of syrup for sweetening. Instead, substitute with diet Sprite or Sierra Mist for the sweet flavor with the carbs. To make, mix one jigger of rum with a splash of lime juice and diet lemon-lime soda. Pour these onto mint leaves over ice.

For a carb-free and tonic, simply mix a jigger of gin with soda water instead of tonic water, and squeeze a lemon over before serving over ice.

A diet jack and coke is another simple recipe that swaps out the traditional soda with a diet option instead. To make, simply mix one jigger of whiskey with a diet coka, and pour the combination over ice to enjoy.

Another low-carb drink option is the cuba libre, which combines diet cola with a carbless rum. To make, mix an unflavored rum with a diet coke, and serve over ice. To add a refreshing twist to the drink, squeeze in some lime juice, and garnish with a piece of lime.
