Did you see the Sex And The City movie yet? I actually saw it on opening day, and seeing a movie on opening day is something I usually avoid more than going to the dentist. It was fabulous, and it ended with the girls out on the town enjoying their signature drink. Fortunately, vodka is GI-friendly. It and red wine are yellow-lighted GI options. So here is a low-sugar version of the cosmo in honor of Carrie Bradshaw and company.
1 1/2 oz vodka (Grey Goose, yes?)
3/4 oz triple sec or cointreau
3/4 oz Ocean Spray Diet Cranberry Juice*
1 oz fresh lime juice (or True Lime)
Pour all of the above into a cocktail shaker half filled with ice. Shake, strain into a cocktail glass and serve (the classic way to serve is with a slice or curl of lemon).
* I’m a big fan of Ocean Spray Diet Cranberry juice. It’s only 5 calories a serving and isn’t overly sweet. I keep a bottle of it at work along with fizzy flavored waters and both have helped me way cut down my diet soda intake!
