"I wasn't surprised that Barbara, Meredith, Star, Joy, and Elisabeth thought that spirited beverages are high in carbohydrates," said the book author as he left the studio and headed back to his home base in Chicago. "The secret of mixing a great tasting low-carb drink is in the choice of drink mixers. I've put together a great selection of products on The Low-Carb Bartender website ( that will help anybody become a low-carb bartender too."
