A Classic Mojito

What Is a Skinny Girl Mojito?
Skinny Girl is actually a brand that focuses on creating ready-to-drink low-sugar and low-calorie versions of the most popular cocktails and wine.
However, they were one of the first to create low-calorie cocktail options and have been such a powerhouse in the cocktail market that when other “light” recipes and beverage products came about, people referred to them all as skinny girl versions.
So while a low sugar and reduced-calorie mojito might be called a skinny girl mojito from time to time, it should actually be referred to as just a skinny mojito.
