Are you looking for alcoholic drinks to make with sparkling water? Sparkling water cocktails are a healthy drink choice and low in calories. Plus, nothing is more satisfying than a fizzy alcoholic drink (or a mocktail) on a hot summer day or to celebrate a special occasion.
You can make this cranberry basil version with a few simple ingredients. The results will taste like the spiked seltzers you see in stores. But, better because yours will be made at home with all-natural ingredients!
Since sparkling water has no calories, the nutritional content depends on what you add. This recipe, for example, has about 177 calories which come from the vodka and cranberry juice.
Considering that the average cocktail has well over 200 calories, this is a healthy option. Try low-sugar cranberry juice for an even slimmer drink. For an added benefit, sparkling water helps you feel full!
Prefer a non-alcoholic spritzer? Skip the vodka and make up the missing ounces in equal parts sparkling water and cranberry juice. Don’t forget the lime to give your mocktail even more flavor (and it will look pretty).
