|1 tsp of Rose's Lime has 2 carbs. This stuff is really sweet so I never|
need a whole teaspoon but if you want a little bit more sweetness you
can add more as long as you count those carbs.
|The great vodka debate: Sometimes I make this drink with Black Cherry|
Grey Goose and it's also very good. But who wants to keep buying
$40 bottles of vodka when you can get this one for $13?
|I love Amelia Seltzer. They have all kinds of fun flavors like raspberry|
lime and peaches and cream.
- Here's the deal with lime juice: fresh is best. The juice of a medium sized lime has about 1 carb, which is very low. That being said, there is no way in h-e-double-hockey-sticks that I'm making fresh lime juice every time I want a cocktail. If I remember to pick up limes at the store, great. Once you cut a lime it doesn't have a very long shelf life, so I often end up throwing half a lime away. I always keep some Rose's on hand for those occasions.
- Any berry flavored seltzer water will do in this recipe. Normally I make my own with my Soda Stream, but I picked up a bottle of Amelia Seltzer for the sake of this post. You can find these flavored soda waters at your grocery store right next to the regular soda.
