150 Calories Or Less

Green tea ice cubes, ginger vodka, and other smart ways to build tasty, ab-friendly summer cocktails.

EVERY SHOT you down is about 100 calories, so the last thing you should do is add sugar to your drink. Good thing, then, that many top mixologists have begun swapping lazy syrups and sugar-laden mixers for more healthy, natural ingredients. To help you elevate your own cocktail repertoire, we recruited Carlos Rios, brand ambassador for Stoli vodka. Pick up some pitchers on your way home—you’re gonna need them.

CALORIES IN LIQUOR = OUNCES X PROOF X 0.8

BUY A FLAVORED VODKA— OR INFUSE YOUR OWN

A good flavored vodka—think wasabi, ginger, or grapefruit— really takes the guesswork out of making a drink, says Rios. “Just add soda and a garnish.” You can also infuse your own. Just get some fresh herbs, fruit, or vegetables, prep them (clean, peel, cut into large cubes), then use them to fill a large jar halfway full. Top it off with vodka, cover, and let it sit in a cool, dark place for a few hours to two weeks, depending on the ingredients.

TRY IT OUT BY MIXING...

1½ oz pepper-flavored vodka

2 oz lemon juice
