    Another, I know it's not Paleo/Primal question...

    We live on a sailboat in Florida and cruise the Keys and Bahamas. There is some rule somewhere that sailors are supposed to drink rum....
    Well when I have my Captian and coke, am I 'better off' have a diet coke?
    Or what about Coconut rum and pineapple juice? Coconuts are Paleo and pineapples are Paleo, so....

    Just wishful thinking.

    Sugar free daquari.

    2 parts light rum
    1 part Key Lime juice

    Shake well over crushed ice and strain.

    You're not better off with diet coke vs coke for your captain and coke. If you want soda sometimes, find one made with actual sugar and natural ingredients. There ARE some out there! The aspartame in diet coke is an abomination.

    Thanks for the ideas.
    I'm not tough enough et to go straight :-(
    There was that struggle between Sugar in regular coke and the 'who knows what' in the diet stuff.

    But several good ideas.

    If you can drink rum and diet coke you can drink anything. Upgrade the rum and drink less of it, or perhaps coconut water as a mixer?
    Wheat is the new tobacco. Spread the word.

    OK,
    We are a couple of weeks away from heading over to the Bahamas. The last time we went, I took 32 cases of beer. Now I don't drink nearly as much beer, but I guess we'll take some, just because it is VERY expensive over there.
    Rum is cheap there, so still looking for mixer ideas...

    there are a couple of more "natural" diet sodas you could use as a mixer....
    sweetened with stevia:
    Zevia
    Blue Sky Free

    sweetened with splenda:
    Hansen's Diet


    (Zevia is not my favorite in any of their offered flavors but i haven't tried it with rum LOL)
