Let’s be honest – as January comes to a close, it’s highly likely that any sobriety resolutions have been completely forgotten.
However, in keeping with record numbers of Brits opting to partake in ‘Veganuary’, and with 8 in 10 promising to take up a strict New Year diet, Dirty Martini have crafted a number of low calorie and vegan cocktails. One of two vegan cocktails on offer, ‘The Fixer Upper’ combines Belvedere pure vodka with Monin ginger syrup, pressed apple juice, beetroot juice, fresh lemon juice, muddled raspberries, cherry bitters and celery salt. What’s more, the drink is garnished with vegetable crisps and contains just 215 calories per serving.
In addition, the drink is relatively simple to create at home. We have the recipe especially for readers to recreate at home this weekend – breaking abstinence but remaining relatively healthy at the same time.
30ml Belvedere pure vodka
20ml Monin ginger syrup
25ml apple juice
25ml beetroot juice
