Bacardi USA., Inc. has appointed Sex and the City actress Kim Cattrall as the celebrity spokeswoman for its new FAB, Island Breeze.

Cattrall will appear in a series of print and cable television ads touting the drink, which has half the calories of traditional spirits and half the calories of wine. The tagline for the adverts will be, "Now you can have it all."

Island Breeze is made with Bacardi rum, infused with natural fruit flavours and sucralose, a natural-sugar substitute with no caloric content. The drink will be available throughout the US next month in three flavours - Key Lime, Coconut and Wild Berry. The drink has 18% alcohol by volume and 48 calories per standard 1.5 ounce serving.

Suggested retail price is approximately US$13.99 for a 750 ml. bottle.
