Torani syrups was kind enough to send this bottle of Torani Sugar Free Red Raspberry syrup. I’m not going to lie, I could drink this stuff straight from the bottle if it wasn’t frowned upon. This stuff is great for more than just cocktails, I love adding a splash to my lime flavored sparkling water, on the daily. The sugar free syrups are sweetened with Splenda, so they are totally guilt free! I counted 37 sugar free flavors on their website, and it seems like they come out with new flavors pretty frequently!
I’m pretty sure you will love this Sugar Free Strawberry Piña Colada as well!
Ok, so I know that fruit can be limited when your eating low carb, but did you know that 10 raspberries have 1.07 net carbs. So what I’m saying here, is that it’s fine if you eat the cocktail garnish. I sprinkled the garnish and the rim of the glass with edible glitter. Umm, don’t do it around the rim of the glass unless you are going for the disco lips look…Just a warning!
You are going to need a muddler for the basil and the lime juice. Do you like to muddle? I know I do. I actually don’t own a muddler, so I just used a mortar and pestle for muddling the basil. It worked!
Want Torani in your coffee? Me too…you will love this Low Carb Irish Cream Coffee Frappé!
