Using good liquor in a simple mixed drink makes the drink better...
For instance a Brugal 1888 Mojito is much better than your standard run of the mill white. IMO.
(Call it dirty if you like.)
A Dark And Stormy with Goslings Old... though I've had to settle for standard Gos before when Old couldn't be had locally.
The subtle flavor comes through.
The same with a Norcal or standard Margarita and good añejo.
And I'm not going to bother going out and throwing money away on a decent bottle of white.
I keep in my house what I'm willing to happily DRINK... not things I'll drink and "other stuff".
I'm not saying mix with your most expensive bottles... just, c'mon...
Good liquor tastes better and in a simple drink you CAN taste it.

And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
Also, if a mix is easier, there's a sugar free one called Bob's or Uncle Bob's or something like that. They make a whole line of sugar free mixers. I never checked the ingredients because I used them pre-primal, so I'm assuming they have aspartame. I was in OR at the time, so I don't know if they're available everywhere.

My current go-to is a NorCal with a couple of orange slices muddled in it.
