Diva Special

A friend of mine recently achieved a major weight loss. It involved tremendous willpower, daily gym visits and more self denial than I will ever be capable of. But here’s the fun part: it also involved a cocktail, which she has aptly christened the Diva Special and given me permission to share with you.

In a tall glass with ice, pour:

  • triple shot of vodka, preferably the good stuff, but whatever you have on hand will do
  • splash of cranberry juice

Add enough club soda to fill the glass, and a wedge of lime.

Swizzle and sip.

I’ve noticed this tastes even better when I’m wearing red shoes and large stones, by the way. Just sayin’.

  1. Absolutely! This is the way to go if you’re trying to lose weight or just keep from gaining while imbibing. I find a couple teaspoons of unsweetened cranberry juice and extra fresh lime juice makes an interesting anti oxidant cocktail. A triple shot of high quality vodka, club soda and lots of ice is sure to make any entree extremely yummy- Only works if you’re exercising a lot if you want to burn fat while consuming cocktails even as pure as this one!
