Rum for brunch: Lauren Conrad's low-cal, summer cocktails

And they have cinnamon, too!

SheKnows got the chance to sit down with Lauren Conrad at The Beverly Hills Hotel for an intimate brunch and cocktails to discuss all things summer — and, more importantly, her favorite, low-calorie rum cocktails.

When asked if she knew what her go-to cocktail of the summer would be, she pointed down and said, "It's this cocktail I am drinking: a mojito with Malibu Island Spiced Rum. It's more tropical because it's got the coconut, vanilla and cinnamon."

Because L.C., like most ladies, enjoys a cocktail or two, she thinks it's essential to do it the low-cal way: "I like mixing my drinks with club soda or coconut water... it's low-cal and hydrates, so you don't get wrinkles or hangovers."

So why not try them out? Here are four recipes from L.C., just for you:
