To make Sugar-free sweetener:


Stir 2 cups of powdered Xylitol Sweetener into 1 cup of water in a pan over low heat. Allow to cool, bottle and store your sugar-free sweetener in a refrigerator. The XyloSweet brand of Xylitol Sweetener performs well.

Review:

* BEWARE: Although
free of cane sugar and beet sugar, this cocktail contains small amounts of fructose sugars from the agave nectar used in the Agave Sec orange liqueur.

The cranberry juice you select and even some vodkas may also introduce unwanted sugar into this cocktail, so choose judiciously. Even unsweetened cranberry juice and even lime juice will contain natural fruit sugars.
