I'm not typically that big of a drinker, but I love to have a few here and there during celebrations – and especially around the holidays. Let's also get one thing straight about said beverages: they must be delicious! I love to play “mixologist” to find different combinations of sodas and flavors that tickle me. I made this tasty apple ginger cocktail recently using Canada Dry – which for me, is one of my favorite additions to any beverage. I love the ginger flavor and love the crispness.
I wanted to share my drink with you but also mention that the best part about this drink is that it's “skinny!” If you are watching it during the holidays, you'll love that this has just a few calories that come from the alcohol. And of course, if you want to omit the alcohol, it turns into a ZERO calorie beverage that is truly tasty. Here's how I did it.
There are three simple ingredients in this drink: Diet Canada Dry Ginger Ale, vodka, and sparkling apple cider (you can use regular apple cider as well, however, it will have less fizz).
Add some ice and vodka to a glass. Fill the remaining glass half full with Canada Dry.
Then top it off with the sparkling cider. Add your swizzle stick and stir.
This drink is so delicious if you want something special for your holiday entertaining!
In fact, it's so delicious you might have someone try to poach it before you even get to photograph it.
Add this apple ginger beverage to your holiday food and party rotation for a special treat!
