Clear color. Green aromas of cucumber puree, roasted serrano pepper, and bit of mint and herbs with a supple, crisp, dry-yet-fruity medium body and an engaging, medium-length jicama and radish, hint of lychee and apple, and spa mineral water finish. A nicely balanced, dry cucumber cocktail with good purity, carbonation, and persistence; never cloying.

Low-Calorie Ready-to-Drink Cocktail

A relatively new category of ready-to-drink cocktails of various traditional types Margaritas and Pina Coladas, but this category also includes newer canned variations like low calorie carbonated seltzers or 'pop and pour' large format versions that are marketed toward a specific type of consumer looking for a beverage with less calories than its traditional offering; these are often made with sugar substitutes.
