Lets drink
 
What I would like to know is what everyone is drinking. For sugar free I drink Nestea Zero - GD Costco does not carry it - Noticed Costco is not for Diabetics - Every member should complain :) I have.
This plus Unsweeten Almond milk and Kombucha

Would like to know if I am overlooking some great Diabetic drink out there.

Most of the time -- like >95% of it -- I'm drinking plain' ol' filtered tap water. I found it much easier to "just say no" to artificial sweeteners. Too hard to keep track of which ones are the good guys.

The "fun" drink is whiskey. That's a pretty great low-carb drink...:wink2:

I don't drink artificially sweetened drinks very much. I sweeten coffee and tea with stevia. There are soft drinks out there that are sweetened with stevia, Zevia, may be more. I have only tried the Dr. Zevia so can't speak for the other flavors they have, but I didn't have a "WOW that taste just like DP" moment, but given time I could get accustomed it.

I think Tequila is low carb too.

Diet sodas just made me more hungry and gave that up real quick. Non alcoholic drinks I prefer are unflavored seltzer with a squeeze of a lemon or lime wedge. Crystal Lite lemon iced tea is not bad. For alcohol my go to drink is straight Tito's vodka chilled.

Good Ole' Water is my favorite, or in the mornings coffee w/HWC!

Sometimes a glass or red wine, or a Michelob Ultra! Sometimes my very favorite 'Drink' ... Scotch and Soda

With all of these options, who needs Soda Pop?

I drink lots of water, sometimes with lemon. I also drink unsweet tea. When I go out, sometimes, I'll drink Michelob Ultra.

I just tried a Michelob Ultra Amber the other day, 3.2 grams of carbs. I haven't ever seen one before and I kind of liked the taste. I wonder is it new, or do I really live that sheltered of a life?

Ultra has been around for quite a while. I hadn't heard of Amber, though, so I looked at Anheuser-Busch's Web site; apparently Amber has been around since 2006. So we both have led that sheltered a life.:smile2:

I've probably had a couple of Ultras in my life; for a very-low-carb beer they weren't bad.

I hadn't had a beer since being officially diagnosed in 2012, and maybe a year or so before that, until this past year to the best of my memory. I've had the plain Ultra and Cactus Lime Ultra (or Lime Cactus). Not trying to encourage anyone, but the Amber does taste better of the three.

Alcoholic: Truly Spiked Sparkling Water. Fewer than 2 grams carbs.
