Setting — and keeping — a New Year’s resolution may seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. As you ring in 2016, set yourself up for success with a resolution you’ll be inspired to keep for the long haul. This low-cal cocktail recipe is perfect for toasting a new year and a new you!


  • 1 1/2 parts vodka, such as Skinnygirl® Bare Naked Vodka
  • 1/2 part triple sec, such as DeKuyper® Triple Sec
  • 1/2 part fresh lime juice
  • 1/2 part simple syrup
  • 2-4 fresh or frozen raspberries
  • Lemon wheel for garnish


Muddle raspberries in a cocktail shaker. Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass.

Garnish with a lemon wheel on the rim. 

Lemon Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Lemon Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
