Strawberry Cocktails (Low Carb/Sugar/Calorie)
Strawberry Cocktails are wonderful for romantic date nights, Valentine's Day, or summer celebrations and are low carb, low sugar, and low-calorie.
- 10 fresh strawberries
- 20 drops Stevia (liquid)
- 2-4 shots vodka
- 2 squeezes orange or tangerine
- 2 cups ice
- 1 splash sparkling water
- 2 halves strawberries for heart garnish
Strawberry Heart Garnish
Remove the stem, and cut a pretty red strawberry into two halves. Lay them on the cutting board.
Use a small heart-shaped cookie cutter to make the heart garnish. Cut a small slit to place on rim of the glass.
Shake Strawberry Cocktails
In a cocktail shaker, place several strawberries cut in half (or bits of strawberries from cutting the heart garnish) in the bottom of the shaker, and 20 drops liquid stevia. Use a wood muddle stick, and macerate the berries well.
Add 2-4 shots of vodka, a good squeeze of orange/tangerine, and 2 cups of ice cubes. Place lid on and shake well. Pour into glasses through the strainer and garnish with heart strawberries on the rim. Add splashes of zero-calorie seltzer water and ice if desired.
You can find these products right in your grocery store baking aisle, health stores, or online.
Stevia is a sugar substitute extracted from the stevia plant and is calorie-free which is wonderful. One thing to know about stevia that it tastes so much sweeter than regular sugar, so a little goes a long way.
