Crystal Light Mocktails

This evening, we had friends over to our house for dinner and Bible Study. I made Cincinnati Style Chili with all the fixings and sliced up some bread. Someone was planning to bring along some soday, but I wanted to offer some drinks for those that might not want soda and for the kids. I made up a pitcher of lemonade for the kids and then, for the adults (or the kids too), I made a pitcher of the new Crystal Light Mocktails in Peach Bellini.

It was a hit. It has such a soft peach flavor and really does remind me of a Peach Belinni. I really enjoyed the refreshing beverage. I think that next time, I might 'spike' it with a bit of soda (or soda water) to give it a little bubbly effervescence. The drink was a hit with the guests as well. One of the women said that she was adding some of the lemonade to the drink and really liked the combination.

I haven't had any of the Crystal Light Mocktails before, but look forward to trying some of the other flavors. In addition to the Peach Bellini, the other new flavor is Pomtini, which I will be making next. The Peach Bellini and the Pomtini are limited edition flavors, that are available until around June, or as long as supplies last. The other flavors that are available are Margarita, Mojito and Appletini. I think that I will have to try out the Margarita one, I love the lime flavor of Margaritas.

The drinks contain just 5 calories in an 8 oz serving, so they are a great option for a flavorful drink that doesn't contain many calories. Each package has 5-2 quart pitcher packs. They were very easy to make, just add the packet to 2 quarts of water in a pitcher, stir and refrigerate.

Did you see the ad in the coupon section? They have teamed up with the Celebrity Apprentice and the ad is based on that partnership. I love the tag line on the ad "Drink as much as you want and still be awake to hear "You're Fired".

Sounds awesome! I'm not a big drinker, so mocktails are perfect! :)
