Contributed by: NAPSA

(NAPSA) - It's time to break out your umbrellas-the paper kind, that is! No beach, barbecue or backyard party is complete without a cool, refreshing beverage. Fun and fruity drinks are delicious but can be loaded with empty calories from sugar. To slim down these libations, Sweet'N Low(r), America's original zero-calorie sweetener, suggests tasty new beverages that can be dressed up with spirits and mixers, or served as is for family-friendly occasions.
