Low Cal Cocktails

by Eliza Florendo / Beacon Staff • April 14, 2011

Keeping it simple and light on calories?

Try a vodka soda.

Pour 1.5 ounces of vodka into a rocks glass (small glass)

and fill the rest with club soda.

To sweeten, add a splash of cranberry juice.

Feeling like Carrie Bradshaw? Try a Cosmopolitan.

Ingredients:

2 ounces of Citrus Vodka

1 ounce of Triple Sec (beware, sugary!)

A splash of cranberry juice

A splash of lime juice

Combine all in shaker with ice, shake up, and pour

into martini glass. Feel fabulous!

And for the youngins: try some virgins.

Virgin cocktails that is!

(So basically same recipe, no booze.)

Try:

Virgin Margarita.

Sour margarita mix

A splash of orange juice
