The Cosmopolitan has been the “it” cocktail for a few years now, but the original version, made with vodka, sweetened lime juice, triple sec, and cranberry juice cocktail, has 19 grams of sugar. Ouch! So here’s my version – gosh, this job is rough! – with all the same fruit flavors, but far less sugar, and 62 fewer calories, to boot.


Units Scale

3 ounces vodka
1 ounce lime juice
1 ounce cranberry juice, low calorie
1/4 teaspoon orange extract
23 teaspoons Splenda (depending on how sweet you like your drink.)
2 wedges lime


Combine everything but the lime wedges in a cocktail shaker; add ice, shake, and strain into martini glasses. Garnish each glass with a lime wedge, and serve.


The recipe makes two, for the simple reason that it’s easy to do with a 1-ounce shot glass.
