Skinny Ice Cocktails

Here I am sitting around on my summer vacation… eating too many good things and not exercising nearly enough (though I’m trying!) But at least I’m sucking down some skinny cocktails. This is kind of a silly “non-recipe” to share, but since I’m enjoying this as a refreshing summer beverage, and making drinky drinks with it too- I thought you might like to know about it: Skinny Ice Cocktails

Have you had the Sparkling Water ICE beverages yet? They come in all kinds of flavors, and they’re available in the sparkling water section of your market.  FYI, they are sweetened with Splenda.

And by the way, the ICE people don’t know who the heck I am and they didn’t ask me to write a post about their product. Lucky for them, I just kinda love it!

Sparkling Ice Coconut Pineapple

You’ll need the Coconut- Pineapple flavor for this recipe. This summer is the first time I’ve spotted this flavor, and now I’m completely obsessed with it!

Captain Morgan

To turn it into a cocktail, you’ll need some RUM too. I used Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum, but I’m thinking coconut rum would be great with this flavor combo too.

    My girlfriend and I made these the other night for our girls’ night in… and now we are both TOTALLY addicted! We made ours with coconut rum. And it’s also really good with the lemon/lime flavor too!

    We first discovered the Sparkling Ice drinks in Costco some six months ago, and have been hooked ever since. With Subscribe-and-Save on Amazon, you can get a case of your favorite flavor delivered for slightly cheaper (Costco was mixed cases). My favorite is the Pomegranate-Berry, and it was a lifesaver when I gave up Diet Coke.
