Whoever thinks sugar-free living isn’t sexy has never taken a sip of a snazzy Cubre Libre aka Rum & Diet Coke! How totally chic looking is the cocktail in the pic? Uh-huh.

Soda is really unhealthy for you, so when I am jonesing for some soda (which is not often) or a recipe I’m preparing calls for the use of soda, I use all natural Zevia brand soda. I find Zevia at my local Stop and Shop supermarket. Zevia is sweetened with stevia, a super-sweet plant from South America.


1 shot white rum
all natural Zevia brand soda, cola flavor
a squeeze of fresh lime juice
lime wedge or lime peel


  1. Put the shot of rum in a tall glass.
  2. Fill glass with ice.
  3. Pour Zevia cola into a martini glass and fill to the top.
  4. Squeeze in juice and add a wedge of lime or the peel.
  5. Enjoy! Viola! Cubre Libre!
