This very popular Cuban drink has been de-carbed to suit diabetic diet plans. While it is low sugar it is NOT low-taste.
Place Splenda, a large pinch (2-3 leaves) of mint in a pint glass. Use muddler to lightly press mint and dissolve Splenda until it smells of spearmint gum. Add a splash of soda water Squeeze both halves of lime into the glass, leaving one hull in the mixture. Add rum, stir, and fill with ice. Top with soda water and garnish with mint sprig.

These are very refreshing when served with spicy Cuban "Ropa Vieja". They're not bad with burgers from the grill either.
