I swore off regular soda almost 5 years ago, and kicked my diet soda habit when I did my 12 day juice fast back in March. So it's been tough finding a new drink I like. Mostly I've ordered half cut tea (1/2 sweet tea, 1/2 unsweetened tea). I love it. We also like Arnold Palmers - 1/2 unsweetened tea, 1/2 lemonade.
Two weeks ago Publix had Crystal Light on B1G1 sale, and I had coupons! So I got their new mocktail Mojito flavor to try. I mixed up one sleeve of the powder in a huge pitcher of ice water. I filled a glass with ice, then about 2/3 of the way up with unsweetened tea. I filled it the rest of the way with the mojito-flavored water and WOW!! It is a little sweet, a little sour, a little minty - but all the way amazing. It definitely quenches your thirst, too. I'm in love! : )
Update, as of 7/27/14 - I no longer drink half cut tea or Arnold Palmers. This drink is still wonderfully refreshing and is an occasional treat. I like to make it in our Vitamix with extra ice for a slushy drink. Delish!
If you can't find Mojito flavored Crystal Light, you can get it on Amazon:
