Cosmopolitans are a great drink for a bachelorette party, a lady’s birthday party, hey, who needs a reason? They’re fun, they’re festive, and they’re pink! Unfortunately, they are loaded with sugar, typically 4 teaspoons in each drink.

Here’s a low sugar/low cal recipe that tastes just like the high calorie version.

  • 1 jigger (1.5 oz or 3 tablespoons) Citron vodka or regular vodka (nutritional analysis uses 80 proof)
  • 1 oz (2 tablespoons) diet cranberry juice (NOT “light” — it must say diet) OR 2 teaspoons unsweetened cranberry juice and 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (fresh squeezed preferred)
  • 2 to 3 drops orange extract
  • 2 to 4 teaspoons sugar equivalent in artificial sweetener (to taste), liquid preferred

Put all ingredients in a cocktail shaker half-full of ice and shake well. Taste for sweetness. If you are using unsweetened cranberry juice, you may need to add more sweetener. Strain into a Martini glass and garnish with a small lime wedge or curl of lime peel.

Enjoy!
