Low Cal, Low Carb Summer Cocktail Mix

Liza Graves
This mix works well for vodka, bourbon, gin and tequila and I assume rum, but note that I did not try it with rum. Calories: 115 calories, 2 carbs

Course Cocktail


  • 1.5 ounces of choice of spirit
  • 1/2 bottle Fever-Tree light ginger beer
  • Juice of 1/2 lime + slice of lime for garnish
  • 1/2 can of Spindrift grapefruit-flavored sparkling water
  • Ice
  • *Note: for a 50 calorie splurge which adds 2 carbs, a .5 ounce of Domaine de Canton is delicious in this cocktail.


  • Pour 1.5 ounces of your spirit of choice into a 12-ounce glass and add 1/2 a bottle (6 oz) Fever-Tree light ginger beer and juice from 1/2 of a lime. Stir. Add ice, 1/2 a can of Spindrift grapefruit-flavored sparkling water and a garnish with a squeeze of lime.


I rarely say that to recreate something that you really need to be on-brand, but in this case, the Spindrift sparkling water and the Fever-Tree Light Ginger Beer really do make a difference! And the lime? It's a must as well!
