Even though this has slight sugar free taste buried within, the fresh fruit flavor really kicks in and creates quite a tasty treat. Fabulous flavor as is, but since it sits at 86 calories it might be worth the extra 34.5 calories to bump up the whiskey a notch (1-1/2 ounce rather than 1 ounce), making the total calorie count 120.5.
