Skinny Vodkarita: The Perfect Low Calorie Cocktail for the Summer (and Girl’s Night!)

Patio season is fully upon us which means, I’m day dreaming of enjoying the perfect cocktail with the most perfect sunshine. What I’m not dreaming of is a sugary, high calorie drink that is going to send my blood sugar soaring  into the tailspin that is the sugar crash. A girls gotta be able to enjoy a summer cocktail without all the calories and sugar, which is why this low calorie cocktail recipe is perfect! Now, this recipe is for what I like to call a “vodkarita,” which is exactly as it sounds – a margarita sans tequila, plus vodka. I can go for a traditional margarita every now and then, but I am much more of a vodka girl. Alright, ready for the perfect low calorie cocktail? Call your girls, get the chips and guac out and get ready for some refreshing goodness.

The Ingredients

(this will be enough to make 4 cocktails)

  • 3-4 Large Limes
  • 2 Large Navel Oranges
  • 1 pound Strawberries (you won’t need them all)
  • Your favorite vodka ( I recommend Tito’s, personally), you will need 2 tablespoons per cocktail you make
  • tablespoons of your favorite sparkling water

How to Make

    • Start squeezin’! Fill a cocktail mixer with ice then add the juices of the fresh fruit. For one cocktail, you will need to squeeze:
      • 1/4 cup orange
      • 1/4 cup lime
    • Add 3 tablespoons vodka
    • Shake, shake shake
    • Cut up a few fresh strawberries and toss into a glass, add ice
    • Pour in the 2 tablespoons of sparking water
    • Pour the vodka+juice mix into your glass
    • Sip, sip, enjoy!

This is one of my favorite low calorie cocktails to enjoy during the summer (heck, let’s be real more like year round!). This take on a vodkarita is seriously so light and refreshing, perfect for a patio sip. I hope you enjoy this low calorie cocktail as much as I have! What’s your favorite low cal drink option? I’m always on the hunt to try something new.
