Thanks Hungry Girl! Celebrate weekends in style

Low-Cal Cherry Vodkatini

(Entire recipe: 105 calories, 0g fat, 5mg sodium, <1g carbs, 0g fiber, 0g sugars, 0g protein = 2 Points)

Grab your pals for some low-calorie fruity cocktails!

1.5 oz. vodka
chilled 1 serving (for 8 oz. prepared) sugar-free, artificially sweetened cherry powdered drink mix (such as Sugar Free Kool-Aid) OR unsweetened cherry powdered drink mix (such as Kool-Aid unsweetened drink mix)
1 packet SPLENDA (only needed if using unsweetened drink mix)
1 oz. diet cherry lemon-lime soda (such as Diet Cherry 7UP)

Begin by dissolving the drink mix into just 6 oz. of cold water (even though the serving size is for 8 oz.). If using unsweetened drink mix, add the Splenda. Combine just 1/3rd (2 oz.) of this mixture (save the rest for future Vodkatinis!) with the vodka and stir. Pour into a martini glass, top with soda and enjoy! Serves 1.

HG Alternative! Martinis are typically strong cocktails, but if you prefer a lighter (and larger!) beverage, just add some extra soda or cherry drink. You'll still have a super-low-cal cherry cocktail!
