This low-carb sugar-free sweet and sour mix recipe is really a starting place for your cocktails. Using a sugar replacement can help you reduce calories and manage your blood sugar levels better. Contrary to simple syrups, the building blocks of many cocktails, this sweet-sour mixture doesn't need to be boiled. Just stir the ingredients together and refrigerate until ready to use. Ingredients 1 cup water 1/4 cup lemon juice 2 tbsp. lime juice 1/4 cup equivalent artificial sweetener (liquid preferred) Preparation In a small nonmetallic bowl, combine water, lemon juice, lime juice, and equivalent artificial sweetener (liquid preferred). Store covered in the refrigerator. Variations and Substitutions Fresh lemon and lime juices taste best, but bottled works OK. Switch up the ratios of lemon and lime to suit your personal tastes. Cooking and Serving Tips You can vary the concentrations of the juices and sweetener depending on your taste, the particular juices you use, and how much ice you are adding to the drink. You can use this mix to make whiskey sours, daiquiris, margaritas, etc. (Try it with Jack Daniel's Whiskey—yum!) Store in the fridge for up to a week.
