Looking for a drink to sip on by the pool this summer? You could go with an 800 calorie margarita or you could be enjoying this new spin on the classic mojito. Only having 100 calories makes it bikini friendly. This drink was featured at Fleming's as part of there summer happy hour. On a scale from one to awesome, I give it an awesome.

"...to begin, I replaced the rum with Stoli Vanilla vodka. It has such a great silky essence. To kick up the fruit flavor, I added a little pineapple juice along with fresh lime juice. Of course, the fresh mint gives it such a refreshing quality," says Pesquera.

Here is the recipe for those of you that like to play bartender at home.
1 ounce Stoli Vanilla vodka
1 ounce pineapple juice
1 ounce Monin sugar free vanilla syrup
1 ounce fresh lime juice
10 fresh mint leaves
2 ounces club soda

As always you can find more at Eat MKE.
