Happy New Year's Eve! If your plans include a cocktail I have a fun Black Raspberry Martini recipe. I recently received some complimentary bottles of Sparkling Ice to review. These beverages come in lots of different flavors and they are pretty tasty as an alternative to soda. I like that these non-alcoholic beverages have no calories, so switching up sugar-laden juice with Sparkling Ice for cocktails sounds like a great way to reduce caloric intake.
Here is the recipe:
Black Raspberry Martini
1 ounce vodka
1 ounce triple sec
3 ounces Black Raspberry Sparkling Ice
Fill a shaker three-fourths full with ice. Add the vodka, triple sec and Black Raspberry Sparkling Ice. Cover and shake for 10-15 seconds. Pour into a martini glass. Garnish with a couple of raspberries or blackberries in the glass, if desired. Enjoy!
Enjoy and please drink responsibly. If you go out, always have a designated driver. I hope you have a wonderful New Years Eve, whether it is a quiet one with family or an evening toasting with friends.
Happy New Year!
