Many adults enjoy relaxing with a cocktail and are also conscientious of their weight. Some alcoholic cocktails contain hundreds of calories from the mixes, juices and soft drinks. Rum is a light spirit made from sugar cane or its derivatives. The low-calorie lemonade rum spritzer is a cocktail made from Crystal Light no-calorie lemonade, Sprite Zero and a light rum. It is a tasty drink for year-round enjoyment.
Things You'll Need
- Crystal Light lemonade
- 2-quart pitcher
- Sprite Zero
- Clear or light rum
- Ice cubes
- Fluid-ounce measuring cup
- Cocktail glass (16 ounces)
Prepare the Crystal Light lemonade in a 2-quart pitcher. Store the lemonade, rum and Sprite Zero in a refrigerator for 24 hours before preparing the cocktail. Chilling the liquids keeps the ice from melting quickly.
Fill the cocktail glass 1/2 full with ice. Measure 1 1/2 ounces of rum into the glass. Add 6 ounces of lemonade and mix well with the rum.
Add 6 ounces of Sprite Zero and stir. Add a straw and enjoy.
Tips & Warnings
- For an extra lemon-lime flavor, you can garnish your drink with a lime twist on one side of the glass and a lemon twist on the other.
- Please drink responsibly.
