One of my favorite ways to entertain is with a Girl’s Night
In. We get so busy with kids and work and life in general, that it’s important
to set aside time to get together with friends and reconnect.
My friends and I are always trying to come up with lighter
versions of our favorite drinks, and I wanted to share my special recipe for a
classic cosmopolitan with a low calorie twist!
It’s made with Truvia®
Natural Sweetener, so it’s just as sweet as a
traditional cosmo, but with less calories.
Cosmo with a Lighter Twist
Start by making the simple syrup for the cocktail. Mix 3 ½
tablespoons of Truvia® with ½ cup of warm water and shake
until it dissolves.
Place your simple syrup in the fridge to cool while you
assemble your drink.
Mix 1 ½ ounces of vodka and 1 ounce of cranberry juice. Add ½
ounce of lime juice and ½ ounce of orange juice.
Last but not least, add ½ ounce of simple syrup.
Stir well, and add a twist of lime for garnish.
