Default Low Carb Margarita Mix

It's summertime and there are lots of parties and sometimes a nice frosty Margarita just seems like a great idea. From Hold the Toast comes this recipe for:

Low Carb Margarita Mix

1 1/2 cups lime juice (bottled is fine)
1/2 cup lemon juice (ditto)
1 1/2 cups Splenda
2 cups water
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon orange extract (I get very good orange extract from
my health food store; if you're using the grocery store kind, use the
larger quantity.)

Just put everything through the blender for a minute, and pour into a
clean liter/quart sized bottle. Refrigerate until use. To make a
margarita, combine 2 ounces tequila with about 6-8 ounces margarita mix,
and either put it through the blender with lots of ice, or simply serve
it on the rocks.

This whole recipe has about 54 grams of carb; it's about a quart (32
ounces), so figure about 10 grams for a 6 ounce serving of the mix. You
can cut the carb content a bit by using liquid sucralose or Splenda
tablets -- both of these products are lower carb than the Splenda table
sweetener, because they lack the malto-dextrin used to bulk it up to the
same volume as sugar. I made this mix using 72 Splenda tablets, and
figure I saved a good 6-7 grams off the carb count of the whole batch,
or a little over a gram per serving.
