I enjoy ending the day with a cocktail or a glass of wine. I tend to prefer cocktails because there are less carbs to worry about and, if the day has been particularly chaotic, one ┬ácocktail can do what it takes two or three glasses of wine to do, if you know what I mean. I am not the world’s most naturally relaxed person and the past few years have been crazy. Relaxing with a cocktail once in awhile kind of makes me feel grown up and in control. Silly, right?

low carb daiquiri is a relaxing cocktail without the carbs lowcarb-ology.com

The daiquiri is the cocktail of angsty writers and artists. Hemingway liked this cocktail so much he had his own version created with grapefruit juice. It’s good stuff. The secret is in the simple syrup that you make with xylitol. Alcohol doesn’t have carbs — it’s just the stuff we put in it. Obviously you have to be careful. Alcohol will stall you, and heavy drinking is not healthy. But for those of us who enjoy the cocktail hour without the carbs drinks like this low-carb daiquiri are perfect.

  2. Can something other than xyilitol be used? Would Swerve work?
