The DRY Soda Vanilla Orange Mocktail
No matter what Mad Men tells you (still haven’t seen an episode)… drinking a couple cocktails after work, every day, might not be the best idea. Too many calories, too much wear and tear on your liver, etc… When you want a drink, with none of that fussy ethanol stuff in it, your choices can get pretty limited. Club soda with a lime is great but can get dull. And a standard soda is just way too sweet. Here’s the middle ground:
Stupid simple. DRY soda has limited calories in it compared to regular soda, and a 12 oz Vanilla only packs 60. Grab an old fashioned glass, get some ice in there, add a dash or two of bitters, fill it half way up with the soda, another dash or two of bitters, then top it off with more soda and the twist. Slightly sweet, slightly bitter.
