The vice president of nutrition at Atkins, Colette Heimowitz, told "Good Morning America" they crafted this drink "so those who are watching their sugar and carbs can still enjoy a delicious cocktail without spiking their blood sugar levels."
"Coming in at 1.03 grams of net carbs, this drink lets you indulge your sweet tooth without going out of fat burning," she added. "Garnish it with a cinnamon stick for a beautiful, guilt-free drink to enjoy!"
