My mom has always told me that she doesn’t drink because she would rather eat her calories than drink her calories. As my metabolism starts to slow down, I’m realizing there’s some truth to that! I don’t drink often, but when I do, I usually try to drink something light and refreshing. (My mixed drinks of choice are Moscow Mules and vodka tonics.)
If you’re looking for something to make for your Labor Day weekend that’s refreshing and not loaded down with calories, I recommend this drink! I made it up on our bachelorette trip, and while it’s not complex, it is pretty delicious!
You don’t need much at all:
• Ice (optional, but I like ice in my drinks)
It’s seriously so simple – put the ice in your glass and fill it two thirds full with Peach Pear La Croix.
Then you add your vodka. In the small glass above, I only added about one shot. But in the Lilly Pulitzer cup below, I added two shots. I don’t like my drinks very strong, so add as little or as much as you want. (Or don’t add any at all, because it’s just as delicious without it!)
After adding vodka, I put a splash of diet cranberry juice in the drink. It adds a pop of color, and it also helps kill the vodka taste. (If you like to measure things, I’d say half a shot glass. If the drink is too strong, add another splash.)
Stir and enjoy!
Simple enough, right?
I do need y’all’s help though – my drink has no name! Suggestions? You’re so creative that I can’t wait to see what you come up with 🙂
This post does not promote underage drinking. If you’re not of the legal drinking age, just skip the vodka – it’s equally as delicious and has even fewer calories that way!
