Whoever thinks sugar-free living isn’t sexy has never taken a sip of a snazzy Cubre Libre aka Rum & Diet Coke! How totally chic looking is the cocktail in the pic? Uh-huh.
Soda is really unhealthy for you, so when I am jonesing for some soda (which is not often) or a recipe I’m preparing calls for the use of soda, I use all natural Zevia brand soda. I find Zevia at my local Stop and Shop supermarket. Zevia is sweetened with stevia, a super-sweet plant from South America.
- Put the shot of rum in a tall glass.
- Fill glass with ice.
- Pour Zevia cola into a martini glass and fill to the top.
- Squeeze in juice and add a wedge of lime or the peel.
- Enjoy! Viola! Cubre Libre!
