The Vodka Soda is among the easiest low-calorie drinks on the list—all you need is vodka, club soda, and lemon juice. Not only is it elegant and refreshing, but you don't need a ton of knowledge to mix it at home. It's a great cocktail for a family BBQ, a night out at the club, or after a long day at work. It's tangy and has a smooth kick.
If you're counting carbs and watching your weight, a healthy and thirst-quenching drink like the Sea Breeze will do the trick. It features grapefruit and cranberry juice with vodka, giving it a fruity tart taste while providing you with vitamin C, antioxidants, and fiber. The Sea Breeze is my favorite summer drink!
Though the Gimlet usually comes with gin, for that added punch, swap the gin for vodka. Add a simple syrup and lime juice to make this tangy but well-balanced drink for any occasion. I prefer it when I host a dinner party for friends, as it doesn't take long to make. However, don't overdo it with the simple syrup, or the calories will start piling up!
The Cosmopolitan is a famous drink with many variations; you could go in many directions with this one. I'd recommend this recipe that combines vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice, and a bit of Cointreau. It's sweet, a little tangy, and packs in a few health benefits as well. It's my number-one choice for a bar cocktail.
An alternative to the classic Gin and Tonic, the Vodka Tonic is a simple mix of tonic water and vodka over ice. You can also add lime as a welcomed citrusy garnish to give it a little tang. It's one of my favorite low-calorie vodka drinks that takes less than five minutes to make.
The Vodka Lemonade is a simple and delicious drink you can make with a few key ingredients. Grab your favorite lemonade, vodka, and lemon wedges as a garnish, and you've got the perfect low carb and low calorie cocktail for any occasion. I love to take a load off and enjoy this revitalizing drink on a warm summer day.
Is there any cocktail more classic than a Vodka Cranberry? Interestingly, many bartenders don't drink this drink justice because they neglect to use a hint of orange juice and Rose's lime to accentuate the natural cranberry flavor. If done correctly, this drink has high marks for a balanced cocktail that won't affect your diet.
Looking for a refreshing drink that's not too strong or sweet, but just right everywhere it counts? Look no further than the Lemon Drop Martini, my favorite bar or nightclub drink that isn't high in calories. This elegant cocktail has vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup, and Cointreau. It's tangy and bright, and I highly recommend it for a formal event, it's sure to impress.
The Vodka Collins is a great assortment of flavors— tart, slightly sweet, and light, all at the same time. The beautiful combination of vodka, lemon juice, soda water, and simple syrup makes this drink unforgettable. I had my first Vodka Collins while on vacation, and it meshed well with my tropical surroundings.
Looking for a summertime drink that won't make you feel guilty but still packs a punch? Look no further than the Skinny Vodka Mojito. You only need Vodka, lemon soda, sugar, and mint leaves to create a beautifully flavored cocktail that you can sip slowly on the beach while you relax and to take in the scenery.
Sometimes simple and satisfying is the best way to go, and the Greyhound embodies these components perfectly. Grab your vodka of choice and mix it with some freshly squeezed grapefruit, and you'll have a tart concoction that'll keep you coming back for more. Don't forget fresh lime for garnish!
