    Hi, does anyone know if "Xylitol" is dangerous or can it be found as the sweetener in any drinks?

    I squeeze pink grapefruit and freeze the juice into ice cube trays. I drink Gin with sparkling mineral water and a couple of grapefruit juice cubes, leave it for a minute or two to start to melt. Quick, easy, lovely flavour not too sweet and no artificial sweeteners.

    Look for mixers containing Xylitol. I've had my bad experiences of the migraine inducing Aspartame which is in almost every single sugar free product. Nasty stuff.
