Preparation

Mix Splenda and water in a small sauce pan. Simmer until it reduces to a light syrup. About 5 minutes. Add red food coloring and allow to cool.

Mix orange juice, orange drink, lemon juice, and tequila in a pitcher. Slice the lime into thin rounds.

Place about a tablespoon of syrup in the bottom or a tall glass. Fill the glass 2/3 full of finely crushed ice then gently pour the orange mixture down through the ice. You want the orange to slightly mix with the syrup but not be combined with it.

Decorate with a slice of lime and serve.

These are a compromise of flavor and texture. Side by side, ones made with whole, fresh orange juice taste better. But O.J. give you 26g of carbs/glass which is a problem for diabetics.

One (8 oz) serving of this contains an estimated:

Cals: 84, FatCals: 0, TotFat: 0g

SatFat: 0g, PolyFat: 0g, MonoFat: 0g

Chol: 0mg, Na: 15mg, K: 91mg

TotCarbs: 4g, Fiber: 0g, Sugars: 2g

NetCarbs: 4g, protein: 0g

If you want to drop the carbs even more you might try Wal-Mart's Sugar Free Orange Drink in place of the real stuff.
