I made my Sweet’N Low Skinny Vodka Bramble as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars. As always, all opinions are 100% my own. #SweetNLowStars
Coming back from vacation is hard. Like, reallllly hard. I just spent a fabulous seven days at sea on an amazing cruise and I can honestly say I did not want to come home. More about the cruise in another post but I can tell you there was a TON of amazing food and drink so I may have gained a few pounds along the way.
It was all worth it, by the way. Every bite. 😉
But, it’s back to reality and I’ve got to change things up and get back on track because, if you haven’t noticed, the holidays are a comin’ and they are coming fast, my friends. Loads of sweet treats and temptations have already been popping up all over the web.
Aside from added exercise I think a few salads are in order too. Boooo. But you know we always need a little something to work towards at the end of a long week, especially if a little lower calorie fare is in my future for now.
Now, as an aside, I just happen to like the word “bramble” and that caught my eye when I was searching for cocktail recipes I haven’t tried. A Vodka Bramble? Never heard of it. Must try it. Check.
It’s quite a little delicious little beverage and of course you know I used my skinny simple syrup with Sweet’N Low instead of sugar to cut back on a few calories again. Believe me, you won’t miss a thing.
The combination of the blueberry liqueur (which is actually a deep red rather than blue) and the lemon juice – one of my favorites – is fantastic.
You can get the recipe below and also be sure to check out the Sweet’N Low Facebook Page for more delicious ways to cut back on the calories and sugar without missing out on taste.
Hope you enjoy the Vodka Bramble!
