I used to bartend at a Karaoke bar and when it got slow, I would experiment behind the bar to make low-calorie cocktails. One of my favorite concoctions was my Not-so-Virgin Shirley Temple. I always loved Shirley Temples- they are so yummy and bring me back to my childhood. This is a great guilt-free drink that you can easy mix up at home!
- Club soda or Sprite Zero
- tablespoon of grenadine (or just a splash)
- Three Olives Cherry Vodka (or any regular vodka)
- 2 maraschino cherries
Since I worked at a private restaurant, we did free pouring when making drinks so you do not have to measure these cocktails out. Pour Cherry vodka or your favorite vodka (cherry just makes the drink a little sweeter) for a 3 count. Fill glass up with club soda or Sprite Zero and add a splash of grenadine. Add 2 Maraschino cherries for garnish and flavor. This drink only has 75 calories as a bonus. Enjoy!
