A Turkeyless Thanksgiving -- Skinny Vanilla Cranberry Cocktail


In an attempt to stay within our theme today is our "Turkeyless Thanksgiving" cocktail. The skinny vanilla cranberry is a little bit sweet and a little bit tangy pairing perfectly with the appetizer and main dish. The bonus? It's a skinny cocktail so it's much healthier than a normal cocktail, this one is sugar free! So feel free to take another appetizer or to load your plate up because your cocktail drinking just got a little more guilt free.

This cocktail recipe comes from The Fromagette.

A Turkeyless Thanksgiving:
Appetizer: Roasted Grape and Blue Cheese Bites
Main Dish: Pumpkin Sage Pasta
Cocktail: Skinny Vanilla Cranberry

Ingredients
:
-juice + zest of 3 large navel oranges
-2 12oz bags fresh cranberries, rinsed and picked over
-1/2 cup Truvia
-2 cups water
-3 cups vanilla vodka
-1 large bottle sparkling water

Blend together cranberries, orange zest, water.
Strain the puree into a pitcher. 
Press down on the puree to extract the liquid. 
Vodka!
Add the vodka to the pitcher.

I'd be lying if I told you that you couldn't tell that this was a skinny drink, however, it's still pretty tasty.
