My Sugar-Free Lemon Drop Recipe
In case you didn't get the memo, we at Intox-Detox love a few drinks, but we HATE hangovers.
If you take your Intox-Detox, you can pretty much take care of that problem. However, delicious cocktails like a lemon drop can be loaded with SUGAR. The "White Devil" will not only make you fat and ruin your health, it also causes inflammation, which can make the morning after drinking way worse.
With this drink, you eliminate virtually all of the calories, other than the vodka, and you get some antioxidant-rich, detoxifying nutrients from the fresh lemon juice!
Here's how you sidestep all the sugar and calories and avoid excess inflammation, without having to give up your tasty cocktails...
Intox-Detox Sugar-Free Lemon Drop
What you need:
- 3 oz Titos Handmade Vodka
- 1.5 oz Fresh-squeezed lemon juice or Lakewood Organic's Pure Lemon (not from concentrate)
- 2 oz Truvia simple syrup (recipe below)
- Lemon wedge
How you do it:
Give your martini glass an ice bath by filling it with 3-4 ice cubs and filtered water. In a shaker combine the vodka, simple syrup and lemon juice. Shake thoroughly for 45 to 60 seconds. Dump out the ice bath and strain shaker into martini glass. Garnish with lemon.
Optional: Rim the martini glass with Truvia, after the ice bath but before pouring the drink.
How to Make Truvia Simple Syrup
Since we love making craft cocktails, but hate boiling water, squeezing and muddling, we often take a few shortcuts. This one is pure genius. Fill a coffee cup or liquid measuring cup with 8 packs of Truvia. You can also use the equivalent of any stevia sweetner or monk fruit extract. We like to keep it natural. Use a Keurig coffee maker with NO POD in it. Adjust the setting to dispense 4 oz of hot water. Hit brew. Stir with a spoon until all of the Truvia is dissolved. If you don't have the Keurig, you can use warm or hot water. Remember that the ratio is the equivalent of 2 packs of Truvia per ounce of simple syrup.
And that's it! Take your Intox-Detox and enjoy a few delicious sugar and guilt-free cocktails.
