    Does anyone have any suggestions for a good cocktail for diabetics? I would like something to sip on all day on the beach, but I don't want my blood sugar to spike. I am thinking rum and diet coke wouldn't be too high in carbs. Any other ideas?
    Thanks

    Here's a slight twist to the question. My diabetic father in law doesn't drink alcohol and does enjoy the different frozen drinks virgin style. Knowing these drinks are made from syrup, any idea of what options besides aqua that he can drink? He doesn't like sodas either. Anyone who has been to the GBP Mayan Riviera (Akumal/Coba/Tulum)? I have been there and they have a lovely array of drinks but never there with a diabetic before. Thnking of going down in May with him.
