Strawberry Citrus Vodka Cocktail Strawberry-Citrus Vodka Cocktail

If you're planning on having more than one drink, a calorie-saving strategy is to alternate between cocktails and "mocktails," says O'Neil. Refreshing, summery flavors like citrus, berry, and mint can stand on their own, so the non-alcoholic version of the following drink by Neo's Ruhe is just as delicious. Swap in a low-calorie soda for the vodka (try Fresca) and you're drinking a virtually calorie-free beverage.

2 strawberries
1 sprig of mint
3/4 ounce light agave nectar, such as Wholesome Sweeteners
1 3/4 ounces citrus vodka
3/4 ounce lemon juice

In a shaker, muddle together mint and strawberries, then add the remaining ingredients. Shake vigorously with ice for 20 seconds. Pour entire contents of shaker into a tall glass. (Include all of the mint and strawberry pulp.)
