In Recipe - Distiller's Gin No. 6

On our latest menu, we added a section for drinks that are a bit lighter – they are lighter in calories, using lower-calorie mixers – but they are not lighter on flavors. We wanted to have some options for those who are watching their calorie and/or carbohydrate intake levels.  This is one of those drinks – it uses a soda we recently discovered from Sprindrift Soda Company. We like these sodas because they aren’t made with “flavorings,” they are made with actual fruit, with no added sugar.
