Crystal Light Pomtini and Peach Bellini Mocktails

This spring, Crystal Light is expanding its low-calorie Mocktails line with the addition of limited-edition Pomtini and Peach Bellini flavors, so you can enjoy more of your favorite beverages guilt free. On Sunday, March 25 at 9 pm ET, The Celebrity Apprentice contestants competed to introduce the new flavors to the masses. During this airing of the popular NBC reality show I was asked to host a little gathering here in my home to try out the new Crystal Light mocktail flavors.

About Crystal Light Mocktails

· Limited-edition Pomtini and Peach Bellini flavors will join permanent Crystal Light Mocktails flavors, Margarita, Mojito and Appletini, which were first introduced last summer for a limited time but brought back for good in January.

· With only five calories per serving, all five Crystal Light Mocktails flavors give consumers the great flavor of their favorite beverage, guilt free.

· Best of all, Crystal Light Mocktails mix-up easily without the hassle of muddling limes, blending ice or using a cocktail strainer. Just add water, mix it up and toast to the flavor you love!

· Crystal Light Mocktails are available in multi-serve canisters with five 2-quart pitcher packs so there is always enough to share.
For my little party I received: 5 beverage napkins, 5 cocktail drink umbrellas, a 2 quart beverage pitcher and 2 canisters of the Crystal Light mocktail drink mixes.

These Cyrstal Light mocktail mixes are super easy to mix up...you simply pour the little pouch of mix into 2 quarts of water and chill for awhile so it gets nice and cold (or serve right away over a glass of ice). Each serving is only 5 calories so this is the perfect refreshing drink for those of you who are watching your weight. The mocktails are sugar free, low in sodium and caffeine free! yeah!

My husband and I invited over 3 of our friends (2 females and 1 male) to watch the show with us and I served both of the mocktail flavors to my party guests along with some finger foods that I whipped up. I am going to tell you upfront that I love Celebrity Apprentice and I am already a fan of the Crystal Light mocktails so I was super excited to give these 2 new limited-edition flavors a try.

All 5 of us loved the Crystal Light mocktails. The girls seemed to all favor the Peach Bellini, but the guys seemed to favor the Pomtini, although both flavors were delicious! My guests were surprised when I told them that the mocktails were made from a prepackaged powder mix and that I simply just mixed it up with water to serve to them! These drinks do not taste like a powder mix at all! I love the fruity, smooth taste and you absolutely gotta love that each serving is only 5 calories! wootwoot!

Even though Crystal Light states that these are limited-edition flavors we are really hoping that they decide to make them a part of their regular line because we absolutely loved them! We think you all would love them too, so make sure you look for them at your local grocery store the next time you go shopping!

We want to personally thank the great folks over at Crystal Light for sending us the products to review for all of you! We had a great time at our little taste testing party but more importantly, we enjoyed your mocktails!
