Green Tea Mojitos

Typically, mojitos do contain rum, but they are still quite refreshing without the alcohol. Swap out rum for a shot of green tea mixed with muddled mint and sugar, lime juice, and club soda. Serve in a tall glass over ice with a sprig of fresh mint for an extra splash of green in this 100-calorie drink.

Freshly squeezed lemonade is given a hint of cool sweetness with beautifully green basil leaves that should garnish the drink. You can mix an intense basil flavor by muddling fresh leaves in the glass or making a simple syrup with dried basil. A glass comes to 150-200 calories, depending on how sweet you make your lemonade.
