3 DIY vodka infusions for low calorie holiday cocktails

[social_warfare]Holiday time is party time and although we all know alcohol is something to avoid (especially for athletes), there are times when the festivities call for just a little something.  I enlisted the help of mixologist, Ted Gilgore and asked for drink ideas that were low in sugar, carbs and predictablity. Ted suggested 3 DIY vodka infusions.

Infusions are a bartender’s trick for creating unique and season friendly cocktails. They are made with clear, very strong vodkas hand blended DIY style with fruit, herbs, spices and more. Please note that these types of alcohols are not for drinking on their own.

The high proof vodka soaks up the flavors of the mix ins and becomes an infusion. Use your concoction in small doses to lightly flavor club soda. Garnish your drink with something fun or fruity and you’ve got all the spirit and taste of the season without the major calories and sweet.
