I had a friend who was experimenting with making sekunjabin with nutrasweet
years ago. I wonder what sekunjabin would be like with splenda, stevia or
sucrose (isn't sucrose or fructose better for diabetics than plain sugar?)?
Can you make a decent sugar syrup using sucrose or frustose, maybe even
with half splenda? Lemon juice, rice wine vinegar, splenda with a dash of
salt. Would it be drinkable? I hate artificial sweeteners, so it's doubtful
I'd try it. Stevia tastes pretty "green", like the plant it is, but I don't
think it would be bad with lemon juice, or even mint. 

Et si omnes ego non.
