Crystal Light Appletini

Crystal Light put out some limited edition sugar-free (and alcohol free) cocktails, aka "Mocktails", just in time for summer. Have you seen Crystal Light Margarita, Mojito or Appletini yet? I received a few samples to review, and first up was the Appletini.

NUTRITION FACTS

I followed the package directions and emptied the contents of a packet into a pitcher and added 8 glasses of water, and then poured it into a glass with crushed ice. Well, if you've ever had Crystal Light, you knew to expect a tart flavor and it's also strongly "green apple" flavored. I really liked it ... and if you choose to make a real appletini with this (meaning add vodka), it's pretty darn good too.

A serving of Crystal Light Appletini (1/8th of the packet or about 1 cup of drink) provides 5 calories. The sweeteners used are aspartame and acesulfame K, plus the ingredients list also contains citric acid, maltodextrin, natural flavor, modified cornstarch, and less than 2% of magnesium oxide, yellow 5 and blue 1.

A container of Crystal Light Appletini (which has 5 packets) costs $2.99, but I received samples for review from the company. If you don't mind drinking beverages sweetened with aspartame (and personally I don't drink them very often), and if you like drinks more on the tart side, then this is for you. Oh - and of course, it can be used to make a lower calorie mixed drink, like regular appletinis or apple sours ... not that Crystal Light advertises such a use, but that's what someone in my household used it for - not naming names, but pointing at the hubby.
