– You can replace brown sugar with granulated sugar or honey in the same quantity. On the other hand, lime juice can be replaced with lemon juice. You can also use sparkling water, tonic water or green tea instead of plain water. If you want to make an alcoholic cocktail, instead, replace water with rum.
