Cranberry Vodka Sparkle
I enjoy an adult beverage now and then like many people do. Often these drinks require pop, which I rarely drink, or diet pop, which I don’t like the flavor of. I recently purchased a carbonated water machine. It has helped me to drink a lot more water. It just seems so exotic to have bubbles. While enjoying my water I started to create other beverages, one with vodka and another with tequila. If you like, you can even substitute the regular cranberry juice with the diet one making your carbs and calories less.
Please remember 2 things: drink responsibly and within your limit, and, always remember what alcohol can do to your blood sugars.
