Fav skinny girl drink

So... to change subject want to know the best skinny girl drink. I like her white cran cosmo I believe it is.
Getting tired of those truly drinks and want something low calorie.
Any other drinks like that?
I do love a good cosmo and my DH makes a great one but again... trying to cut the calories and sugar.

Thanks!

Honestly I just mix vodka with things like Crystal Light or other packets or drinks that have 5 calories or less and no sugar.

Re: Fav skinny girl drink

You can make a lower cal cosmo.
Use diet cranberry juice (the one with 5 cal per serving- you are only using an ounce or two in a cosmo so the calories are like nil in that case)
Go light on the Triple Sec.
Other than that vodka and lime juice are no sugar so it's nothing.

Fav skinny girl drink

It's not a "skinny girl" recipe, but I love the Kettle One Botanicals Orange Blossom & Peach vodka - its got no sugar. (there are other flavors - I think a cucumber and something else, but I forget what). I mix it with Ocean Spray diet sparkling cranberry (comes in a 4-pack of little cans) and sometimes add a tiny dash of pineapple

If you want a zero sugar, clean mixer, look into Swoon Mixers.
You can get on Amazon or the Swoon website.
I've seen them in the supermarket too

Re: Fav skinny girl drink

I love lemon so I'll occasionally do a lemon drop martini.

I don't measure except for the vodka:

2.5 oz premium vodka
juice of two small or one large lemon
simple syrup (mix equal parts boiling water and sugar then let cool - maybe 2 tbsp each)

I rub a lemon around the rim and dip in sugar also. Then mix and pour.

You could probably do splenda or something but to me it's worth a little real sugar and it's not too bad calorie wise

Swoon also makes a monkfruit based simple syrup if you are making a cocktail with simple syrup and want sugar free

This sounds interesting. No aftertaste?

Not for me, but I'm used to Stevia and Monkfruit.

You can also easily make a sugar free simple syrup with your sweetener of choice- Stevia, Splenda etc. Just boil a cup of water and dissolve a cup of the sweetener in it then let cool. (or any amount of water/sweetener in a 1:1 ratio). You can store it in the fridge for weeks after.
It's actually a lot cheaper to do it that way

That sounds good! I will have to try that.

Lately I have been doing these:

Tequila with crystal light lemonade - tastes just like a margarita

Vodka (sometimes Bacardi limon) crystal light lemonade and sparkling diet cranberry for a low cal Zippy Cooler

Smirnoff Caramel Kiss vodka, diet ginger beer and a splash of apple cider for a lightened up caramel apple moscow mule.
