Simple Syrup (reprinted from Truvia's site)
1/3 Cup + 1 1/2 Tbsp Truvia® natural sweetener spoonable*
1 cup hot water
* or 24 packets Truvia® natural sweetener
1 full-circumference twist of lemon
1 full-circumference twist of lime
1 full-circumference twist of orange
2.Cap and refrigerate overnight.
The revised citrus syrup will work well to use as normally used in bar recipes. For this recipe, Truvia® Natural Sweetener version contains 0 calories, 8 g carb, 0 g sugar, 8 g erythritol per 1 fl oz serving (30 g) compared to a sugar control which has 50 calories, 14 g carb, 14 g sugar.
So what do you do with Simple Syrup? You make wonderful creative cocktails with it! Martinis, Frozen Daiquiris and Pina Coladas. Truvia's site has several beautiful low sugar cocktail recipes and most list the sugar/carb content. But I noticed on those where the sugar is higher, they just don't list it at all. But you're "sugar smart" and will be able to spot the culprits right away.
And I CANNOT say the words Pina Colada without singing this song!
One more twitter pitch... if you are frustrated with not getting answers from Jorge on Facebook, he has recently started using twitter again. There isn't as much "noise" there and so you have a really good chance of interacting with him there. But remember, you have to be nice. I see so many people being rude on twitter (and Facebook for that matter). You talk to people on Social Networking sites the exact same as you would in person and rudeness is almost always ignored on these sites. Just something to keep in mind, although my readers are absolutely the nicest, most polite bunch of social folks EVER!
Cheers to #twitter, #pinacoladas, #lowsugar, #bellyfatcure and #gettincaughtintherain!
