Kinda loving this twist on the classic Cosmo recipe right now. I stand behind any drink that’s half the calories, tastes just as good as the original and does the trick!
Sweet N Low Cosmo
- 3 ounces seltzer water (or club soda)
- 1 ounce vodka
- 1 packet Sweet’N Low® zero calorie sweetener
- 1 ounce cranberry juice
- 1 lemon slice or mint sprig, for garnish, optional
In a chilled shaker, mix the cranberry juice, vodka, Sweet’N Low, and seltzer water. Add ice and shake vigorously. Strain and serve chilled. Garnish with lemon slice or mint sprig, if desired.
The Moms Gone Zen twist… serve over crushed ice. It’s almost like a grown up cosmo-slurpee! We like.
