While there are options for sugar-free or low-sugar rum drinks, it is important to remember such a drink is not necessarily calorie-free or healthy. If you want to consume a sugar-free rum drink because you do not want to put on weight, then there are alternatives available. If you are diabetic, exercise caution when drinking alcohol in general and follow the advice of your doctor.

This sugar-free rum drink uses a combination of rum and sugar-free Red Bull energy drink. Pour a can of sugar-free Red Bull into a tall glass filled with ice.
