Crystal Light Got It Right

When it comes to martinis, I recently have been sticking to the oldies but goodies, specifically the dvm.  The dirty has been a staple in my pre-dinner cocktail food outings.  But while simultaneously craving a new flavor to try I was presented months ago with these little guys.

Crystal Light

Crystal Light has taken a turn from powder to liquid and I must say, it’s working.  I have only tried the Pomtini and Strawberry Lemonade flavors but both are pretty good.  The Strawberry Lemonade takes the cake though.  It is such a simple drink to make and you can spice it up any way you want.

-Generous Amount of Vodka
-A Few Shots of Water (that’s right…H2O)
-2 Squirts of Crystal Light Flavor of your Choice
-Notes: Serve this over ice. A couple of times I have added St. Germain which gave the drink a hint of elderflower and complimented it very nicely.

These little containers are compact, convenient and bursting at the seams with flavor.  A few spritzes is all you need when using these polly in your pocket size delights.  It’s no mystery that these mixes should be used to quench the cocktail lover’s thirst with flavors like Peach Bellini and Pomtini.  But feel free to use these to enhance a non-alcoholic beverage as well such as just plain water.  After all, you and I both know that is probably what they are really supposed to be used for. ;)

Did I mention the best part?  They are a whopping zero calories.  Happy Cocktail Friday.

  1. In college, my friends and I pretty much lived on mixing vodka and crystal light (the powdered kind)! Yay for new liquid crystal light though! And I will order anything with St. Germain in it :)
