Gourmet Soda! The Gay Gourmet!™ (Weight Watcher Alert!)

All this singing of my theme song sure did make me thirsty and although I'm sure it's Happy Hour somewhere I have a full day ahead of me and a cocktail just won't do right now!

I've already had my 2 pints of morning water and I'm craving something with flavor. (yes I get pregnant lady much so that I'd go to the ends of the earth to get somethings)

SO here I have a craving for soda, specifically Sprite, but this is one craving I more often than not try to NOT fulfill as it'll just be a downward spiral for me of high fructose corn syrup & calories!

So now what to drink...juice? I love juice but once again too much sugar and I have no self control... Club soda has the fizz but not the goodness that I want.. and let's be honest vitamin waters, ice teas etc etc are a gateway to becoming fat fast and diet drinks are gross! PLUS, Lord knows swimsuit season is right around the corner! So what's a boy to do!?!?!


Oh wait.. I know..

Make home made soda! Yup you heard right... now just go with me on this one!

I am not a big fan of artificial sweeteners at all. Why? cause they taste artificial..duh! but I have been using a packet of Splenda® in my morning Fat Free Cappuccino cause I need something and it's bearable!

So I wondered.... What if I mixed a packet of Splenda, some club soda (sodium free) and a lemon and lime wedge? What did I get?!?! Diet Sprite without the sodium, the gross aspertame taste and a sense of I know how much chemical went into making it and into my body! For a quarter of the price at that!!! Weight Watcher's you are gonna thank me for this one!

I mean why not try it?!?! It'll curb that soda craving without having to go buy a two liter of something and end up in a sugar coma! It's my new drink and I may just add some Stoli Oranj to it on a Friday night!

P.S. I do know that some diet drinks come Splenda made but it's not the same and to be honest it's just more fun making it yourself!

Deliciously Drinking,
