Don’t you just hate it when you ask for a sugar free drink in a pub or restaurant and all they’ve got to offer is diet cola or water?
Or you’re offered a pure fruit juice – “Well, that’s sugar free – isn’t it?” No it isn’t – the naturally occurring sugar is rather high, but here are a few drinks you might like to try…
I got so fed up of the standard cola offer, I decided to experiment and you might like to try these alternatives to ‘just cola’.
1) Diet cola and diet tonic water in the same glass. It gives a slightly sharper taste and makes a very long, refreshing drink on a hot day.
2) Split a pure fruit Juice (e.g. orange) with a friend and add sparkling water to your half. Or try mixing it with diet tonic water.
If you want to make a refreshing drink at home, try this pineapple slushy:
Take 1 can sugar-free ginger ale, add 1/4 cup of unsweetened pineapple juice and ice cubes. Place in a blender and blend until the ice-cubes are crushed and you get a slushy mixture.
Why not experiment with other unsweetened fruit juices? And if you want a little bit of kick, you could add rum extract to give more flavor.
