I posted a picture of a Cucumber Minto Mojito on Instagram but forgot the tonic water (aka club soda). When I finally made it to the store to pick some up, I was shocked to see that high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) was an ingredient in almost every brand of club sodas on the shelf. The only selection in the store that contained 1-ingredient (carbonation) and was overall natural, was San Pellegrino’s natural tonic water. The price difference of this tonic water compared to the others was negligible, so it was no brainer to go the San Pellegrino way. I stay away from food/beverages that contain HFCS because it’s just not good for your body! When HFCS is metabolized and broken down in the body, its metabolite is only one chain reaction away from becoming fat (aka the building block of fat called glycerol). So, no thank-you!
This Cucumber & Watermelon Mint Mojito is refreshing, simple to make and made with natural ingredients! It’s the perfect beverage for happy hours and entertaining! I hope you all love it!
