It’s time for an adult beverage! Rum and diet coke was my drink of choice for a long time. New information has come to light about the awfulness of some of the ingredients and when I drink a few out at a bar I get a terrible caffeine hangover the next day. I’ll be posting some new favorite low-carb drinks starting with this one.

shot (or 2) of vodka
the juice of half a lemon
lemon slice for garnish
Put two ice cubes in a bar glass. Pour in a shot or two of vodka. I do one and a half shots and you can barely taste the vodka. Squeeze in the juice of half a lemon. Add a small drizzle of agave nectar, about a teaspoon to start. Fill the glass with club soda and stir. Garnish with a lemon slice. Add more agave nectar in small increments if it’s too sour for your taste.
