When trying to have a low carb diet there are still times a person needs a drink. I have come to love the Dasani sparkling soda water as a mixer with vodka or rum or tequila. The sparkling cherry water and vodka is a great low-carb cocktail that I am currently obsessed with drinking. The crisp cherry flavors of cherry from the dark cherry sparkling water are perfect with a cherry or regular vodka to make a sparkling cherry water and vodka not leaving you wanting a sweet mixed cocktail when trying to stick with a low-carb diet.
Now, let me start by saying this sparkling water is not sweetened. It is flavored but no artificial sweeteners. If you are looking for a sweeter drink, than look for a sparkling flavored water with a no-calorie sweetener. For me, the Dasani sparkling waters are where it is at for me.
Now when it comes to vodka, I like the Grey Goose cherry noir vodka. It is 98 calories in an ounce and a half serving size and no carbs. I also love other brands of flavored vodkas, but once I find a vodka I like, I pretty much stick with it. When it comes to carb counting, I want to be sure I am certain and want to make sure I am not going crazy on carbs.
In a drink shaker filled with ice, add a half a can of the sparkling water and a shot of the vodka. Shake to combine. Remember this is carbonated, so don’t go crazy shaking! Pour over ice in a cocktail glass.
Want to make a double? Just use a full can and two shots of the vodka. Feel free to pour the vodka over ice in a highball glass and then pour the sparkling water over top. Stir with a straw and sip your way into low-carb cocktail happiness.
