1. Go to Pencil.
2. Buy a 500 ml bottle of Thai Lime Juice.
3. Buy some artificial sweetener.
4. Buy a bottle of vodka.
5. Mix all in an empty 1.5 liter water bottle, to taste.
6. Tell everyone it's Royal-D and you're sick so you can't share.
I am sooooo very sorry if you can't understand or appreciate my sarcastic facetiousness.

"tanduay ice zero - and 5% alcohol and only 90 calories"

Sweet or not, you got my attention here. You can buy this in the stores in Cambodia?

Ok i have now checked many convenience stores and seems no local brands. A couple or so very expensive imported like 8 times the price of Tanduay ice in Philippines that do taste almost as good but a little less than 5% alcohol. Did not say how many calories but i will bet it is a hell of a lot more than the only 90 of Tanduay ice zero(perhaps could search the internet and find out). Usually those types of alcoholic drinks 'don't taste like god awful beer' are more calories than the typical beer of around 200 more or less for the typical 12oz or 330ml. Here found one called Vodka Cruiser and is written 4.6% alcohol. It is only 245ml though and costs a whopping $1.7 at Kiwi mart on street 51 just north of intersection 154 and other places slightly more it seems except at Lucky supermarket maybe a few cents less forgot exactly. There is another brand called Red i think a little more expensinve and did not seem to taste quite as good. Though did find similar to that Soicu or whatever from korea and japan but forgot the name here exactly but think it is also imported. As i recall it was the standard 330ml and was a little over $2 as recall and surprisingly had written 13% alcohol on the side so per alcohol content would be the less costly but still expensive esp compared to tanduay ice in PI(about2.5 times as much on a per alcohol content i would estimate). The taste was a bit stronger and not as pleasant but not all that bad considering the 13% alcohol and still not nearly as bad taste as god awful beer, wines, etc. If these were at or near the price of local beers here i'll bet given the choice u would never go back to drinking beer that is if any of those low priced bars served them which i would bet they don't.

would assume without further research, and no i am certainly not all that familiar detail if at all on exact processing of beers etc. , that they can remove the excess sugar after it has somewhat fermented and released or and etc. produced ethanol.

That would be at least 4000 calories. I need a lo-cal alternative. :beer3:

Been a while since I was at the bluedog. I never got into though. Very short buzz. :greet:
