Soda-less Can Still be So-Delish - A 90 Calorie Cocktail

by 11 January 14, 2015

So, as I professed to you luvvs last week, I've put it out into the universe that I am trying to no longer drink soda. Which, as an avid Diet Dr. Pepper lover, is incredibly, incredibly hard. I've tried this many times before - it's almost always one of the things I give up for Lent, yet I continue to fail. I've recently realized that one of my biggest hurdles, besides the caffeine headaches (ouch!), is that if I have a cocktail, it tends to have soda in it. Well, to help myself and any of you luvvs that are trying to get healthier, I've come up with a soda-free cocktail that only has 90-- yes, that's right, 90-- calories. This light, refreshing drink makes a great alcoholic drink and a great non-alcoholic drink if you want to skip the vodka and add real melon. It's also filled with nutrients from the cucumber and lime. Cucumber is great for managing stress and hydration while lime helps at anti-aging. You're going to be stress free and looking good when you drink this!

Ingredients

2 cups of Lime Perrier Lime Rind Cucumber Slices 1.5 oz of Melon Vodka

Directions

First, you are going to get out your fresh cucumbers and limes. Slice up the cucumber into fairly thin slices. Then, you will peel off  the rind of the lime. Next, pour 1.5 oz of melon vodka (one and a half shots) into your glass. After, pour in your Perrier. This lime Perrier is an amazing sparkling water. It is delicious and calorie free! It gives you the fizz  your crave with none of the extra calories. Mix the two! And plop in the rind and as many cucumber slices as you feel like having in your glass.

I normally never branch out to clear liquors, but this melon vodka happened to fall into my life one day. Even those of you that don't typically like vodka, could find an appreciation of the slightly sweet, light flavors of the melon.
