With New Years resolutions in full swing, we’ve got a creative way to watch your calories and still enjoy your cocktails this year. Boardroom Spirits has created a wonderfully versatile Fresh Cranberry Flavored Vodka that will easily replace cranberry juice and plain vodka. A typical vodka and cranberry drink weighs in on average at 232 calories and 23 grams of sugar. That means you’ll likely have to put in 25 minutes on the treadmill for each cocktail you consume! But only 2 ounces of Boardroom Spirit’s Fresh Cranberry infused vodka and seltzer with a splash of lime juice only clocks in at 94 calories and 0 sugar. Also important to note is that there is zero carbs – a paleo dream!
No one wants to cut back so why not just cut the crap? You’ve got no excuse, Boardroom Spirits products are conveniently available at Reading Terminal Market and at Pennsylvania Fine Wine and Good Spirits stores. Made locally at their Lansdale distillery, Boardroom Spirit’s Fresh Cranberry retails for $24.99. Its beautiful bright red color is naturally derived from organic unsweetened cranberries.
Try out this Cranberry Fizz with your new vodka:
- 2 oz Boardroom Spirit’s Fresh Cranberry infused vodka
- 1 oz Ginger Simple Syrup
- Create the ginger simple syrup by combining sugar, water, and freshly grated ginger root in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Remove from heat, cover, and let the ingredients cool for 30-45 minutes. Strain the syrup and discard the ginger root. Refrigerate syrup in an airtight container.
- 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
- Club Soda
- Lime Slice, to garnish
Combine all ingredients in an ice-filled collins glass and stir until well chilled. Garnish with lime slice.
