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:

Herbal and refreshing. Basil, gin and lemon sit harmoniously, balanced by sugar-free sweetener.
