Scott’s Bio

I’ve got an invested interest in living a low-carb life.  At the age of 13, I was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes (T1DM), otherwise known as Juvenile Diabetes.  This has been a disease that has been something that has played a large role in my life, as can be expected.  I went to highschool with it, college, got married, and had kids with it.  But while it may have been my ever present companion for over 20 years, I try my best not to let it define me.

As I age, I often joke that my disease has its own milestones.  When I had it for 16 years, I joked that it should get its own drivers license, then it was the right to vote.  Now, it’s old enough to drink.  And I do enjoy a good and tasty drink.

I originally went to college to become a doctor.  And after my first year, I quickly realized that this was not what I wanted to do with my life.  In my sophomore year, I got a job in a research lab and was instantly hooked.  I could easily translate my biology and chemistry classes into the new direction without having to lose an entire year of college.  After graduation, I got a job in a research lab and now have 10+ years experience in laboratory experimentation and technique.

I’m now applying my chemistry skills towards my quest to make carb-free cocktails that taste just as delicious as their sugary counterparts.

  1. Scott, I am so excited to find your website. I recently married the love of my life. He is wonderful in every way. However, he does have type 2 diabetes. He is amazing and is completely diet controlled, but only because he eats about 3 things and drinks only one cocktail (Gin and diet tonic). I am going to try all of your recipes and I really love your site. One question: Have you ever tried sugar free kamikazes? My dad makes them in volume with vodka, triple sec and Rose’s lime juice. I would love to try to find a sugar free version. Thank you for your website. I will be a frequent visitor.

    • Lori,

      Thanks for your wonderful comment!

      I have not tried a kamikaze! Personally, I don’t do much mixing with vodka, but it should be easy enough to make by substituting our Sugar Free Triple Sec for the high-octane variety for the exact same volume as you’d make normally! Check out our post on how to make it here: http://www.mixdrinkrepeat.com/sugarfree-triple-sec/

      Let us know how it turns out!
