Even us health/fitness minded types enjoy a good drink now and then, and it’s hard to find one that is not either full of carbs/sugar, or tastes like crap. So, I have been experimenting with a drink that tastes good and keeps the sugars/carbs to a minimum on those occasions I want a drink. Been tweaking it for a while, but I think the recipe if finally done. The ingredients are specific, so no mixing and matching then complain it tastes bad. Recipe goes like so:
2 parts Reyka vodka (it’s from Iceland and the best vodka going)
1 part unsweetened cranberry juice (most have added sugar)
1 part Snapple Diet Ice tea, peach flavor
1 packet of Truvia non caloric sweetener*
Optional but recommended: Lemon or lime wedge squeezed is also a great edition:
Put ice into a shaker, add above ingredients, and shake ’till mixed well, and poor into tall glass. Tastes great, keeps carbs/sugar to a minimum, which also reduces the calorie content also.
Current name is “Sex On The Brink” Or just “Brink Drink.
Try it, I think you’ll like it (assuming you drink alcohol…) and it will save you some carbs/sugar/cals in your diet. Don’t forget, there are no free rides in biology, and the alcohol is a 7 cal per gram sources O cals…
Truvia is not a synthetic sweetener and is made from “natural” ingredients:
