Cocktail Friday: The Skinny Cranberry Vanilla

Now this is a cocktail I can really get behind: it contains more than a day’s worth of vitamin C and is sugar free.  Yippee hooray...a cocktail that fits within the limits of my New Years Resolution. Tangy, ruby-red berries are an integral part of the season, and as a potent vehicle of important antioxidants, we should enjoy them in abundance while the time of year allows…

juice + zest of 3 large navel oranges

2  12oz bags fresh cranberries, rinsed and picked over
1/2 cup Truvia
2 cups water
3 cups vanilla vodka
1 large bottle sparkling water

Puree the juice, zest, whole cranberries and 2 cups water in blender, then push through a sieve to remove solids. Transfer into a pitcher, add the Truvia and vodka and mix. To serve:  fill each glass with ice, add vodka mixture to the 3/4 point {or to taste}  and top off with sparkling water. Give it a gentle stir and garnish with orange zest and cranberries.  Enjoy...and celebrate Friday!
