Product Review: New Crystal Light Mocktail Drink Mixes!

Summer is finally here and there is one thing that I always look forward to during a hot summer day and that is cooling off with a nice delicious cold beverage. Today...I am going to talk to you about the new limited edition Crystal Light mocktail drink mixes! I was recently sent 2 of the Crystal Light Mocktail drink mixes to try out for all of you and I was really excited about receiving them. As you know...mocktails don't contain any alcohol.

About The Product: Crystal Light Mocktails are a low-calorie drink mix available for a limited time in Margarita, Mojito and Appletini flavors. With just 5 calories per serving, they offer all the flavor of your favorite summertime beverage, without the compromise on calories. New Mocktails easily mix up the perfect pitcher without the hassle of muddling limes, blending ice or using a cocktail strainer. Just add water, mix it up and toast to summertime!

More about Crystal Light Mocktails:

· Contains just 5 calories per 8 fl. oz. serving, compared to leading beverages*
· Contains 0 carbohydrates per 8 fl. oz. serving
· Sweetened with a blend of non-nutritive sweeteners
· Gluten free
· Available in multi-serve canisters with five 2-quart packets so there is always enough to share
* Leading beverages contain 70 calories

My Review: I received the Margarita and the Appletini flavors to try out for all of you. The first one that we decided to try was the Appletini because we love the alcohol version of these drink so we wanted to see if the mocktail version was just as good. We read the instructions on the canister and mixed the packet of mix with cold water...stirred it up for a few minutes and then poured it over ice in our drinking glasses. Each packet will make a full 2 quart beverage pitcher. My husband, 25 year old daughter and I sat down to have some appletini mocktail and wow...we were super impressed with this drink! It actually tasted better than the alcohol counterpart and we just loved it! Matter of fact, we finished the entire 2 quart pitcher of Appletini in just 4 1/2 hours! It was refreshing, sweet (but not overly sweet) and had a wonderful apple flavor to it.

We also received the Crystal Light Margarita Mocktail Mix to try out for you. The very next day I made up a 2 quart pitcher of the Margarita flavor and chilled it for about an hour or so. Once the gang arrived home from work and ate dinner...I served them their Margarita Mocktails and immediately the gang told me that they loved them! Again...refreshing taste and tasted just as good, if not better than the alcohol version of this drink.

Overall Impression: I will definitely be purchasing more of the Crystal Light Mocktail Drink Mixes in the future...matter of fact, it's on my grocery store shopping list for Friday! They taste absolutely delicious and they are super easy to prepare because all you need to do is add cold water! I love that each 8 oz. serving only has 5 calories so it's great for those of us who are watching our weight. We give these drink mixes 10 stars out of 10 stars! We hope you will go out to the store and pick up a few yourselves and give them a try...I think you will love them!
