Weight Watchers Friendly Rum and Coke

Rum and Coke

Rum and Coke or Cuba Libre is one of the most popular drinks around the world.

No matter where you go you are sure to find one version of this drink or another, and everyone is using their own “special” rum to make it.

Traditionally it is made with a light rum like Bacardi, but as you travel you will encounter a lot of different rums to sample and enjoy.


How to Mix a Rum and Coke

The secret to making a great rum and coke is to get the right mixture. So make sure to measure so you can get the perfect drink every time.

There are more than a few different ways to get the right mixture depending on how sweet you want your drink. I recommend a 1:3 ratio of rum to coke if you like it sweeter and 1:2 for a more traditional taste.

Whichever you choose you are sure to get the maximum amount of flavor without too much alcohol or coke. A perfect balance.

On Captain Morgan's website they recommend 50 ml of The Captain and 125 ml of soda or a ratio of 1 part rum and 2.5 parts soda.

This will result in a slighter sweeter drink but The Capt. can be a little on the stronger side, I like it this way. Don't forget the lime and you will have crafted one of the world's most sought after drinks.

To make this drink Weight Watchers friendly use a diet coke or your preferred diet soda. Let your bartender know to use diet coke and a lime wedge. You can also opt to bring your own lime-flavored crystal lite packet and enjoy your masterpiece.

Using diet coke and 1 1/2 ounces of rum this drink is only 3 points, so enjoy… responsibly of course 😉

More Low Point Drinks

Do you have a hankering to try something different? Need to make a different drink for a guest or spouse?

Do you hate diet soda? Is the taste not really for you? Try Coke Zero instead and still enjoy the low points and the drink.

As you savor the classic combination of Rum and Coke, it's important to be mindful of your alcohol consumption and its potential effects on your health.  If you ever have  limitation problems or concerns about alcohol abuse and its impact on your health, you can prefer an alcohol drug test.

Taking an EtG drug test can help you make informed choices about your alcohol intake and ensure you're enjoying your drinks responsibly. This will also help you maintain sobriety in your workplace and avoid unnecessary workplace incidents, ensuring a work-life balance. So, whether you prefer the sweetness of a Cuba Libre or the classic rum and coke, remember that your health matters.
