Great for Anyone Looking to Have Fun with Less Sugar
on November 1, 2004
My Mom has diabetes and although her doctors told her she could have a "glass of wine", now and then, she wasn't sure about all the other fun drinks out there. Now she is - Marlene and Chuck Koch not only do a great job of explaining the in's and out's of carbs and alcohol - but also have created a huge assortment of wonderful concoctions my Mom (and of course I) can enjoy - guilt-free! With both carbs and calories listed, there are so many to enjoy. I immediately made some of the Mock Kahlua over the weekend and was amazed. With only 2 grams of carb (and no sugar), instead of the usual 14 grams per ounce, it tastes even better than the real stuff. Sipping on a White Russian (only 3 grams of carb) was all it took to convince us both what a fun and great book this is. Last, if you know anyone cutting carbs, sugar (or even calories) this would make a terrific little gift!
