Baltimore bars with splenda mojitos?
Sorry I haven't been around much lately, gang. I'm technically on vacation, but blogs being blogs, I'm never really "on vacation" unless I leave the country.
Anyway, I'm planning on officially announcing the winner of the Resurrection Can Photoshop Contest when I get back on Tuesday, although it's pretty clear who the winner is going to be.
In other news, Amie wants to know if there are any Baltimore bars who make mojitos with Splenda instead of cane sugar/simple syrup.
To me, this sounds like a no-brainer. It would make the delicious summer drink (nearly) calorie free.
I'll bet tons of people would buy them, and it wouldn't take that much more effort to make ...
I'll admit -- I could call a bunch of bars and try to find some that might offer this, but I'm on vacation and therefore too lazy. But in my five years of covering Baltimore nightlife, I've consumed countless mojitos, and never come across ones with fake sugar in them.
If no one in Baltimore has thought of this already and starts offering them because of this post, I want a cut of the profits, by the way. Just sayin.
