It was quite by accident that I invented a new drink that is refreshing and lo-cal. It only takes three ingredients and it doesn’t involve soda so there’s no fizz to fill you up.  It's the perfect summer drink!  Now I just have to come up with a name for it.


1 peach mango flavored Crystal Light powder pack (I use about half the packet, it's up to your individual test)
1  12oz bottle of water
1 shot of Pineapple flavored Bacardi (any brand will do and again, you can use a little or a lot based on your taste)


I only use about half a packet of the peach mango Crystal Light powder pack to one 12oz bottle of water. Keep the cap so you can shake well to mix. You'll need to drink or pour a little out to make room for the Pineapple Bacardi (or brand of your choice).  Use the Crystal Light as mix with one shot of the pineapple rum and pour it in a glass with ice. Yup, that simple and lo-cal because you’re using Crystal Light that has 5 calories. Technically it's only 2.5 calories if you only use half the packet and no carbonation to fill you up like when you use soda as mix.

Let me know what you think if you try it.  If you've come up with a tasty new drink, share the recipe, I'd love to try yours too!    ENJOY!
