Beer, wine, and hard alcohol. The real culprits when it comes to unnecessary calorie and sugar intake.
But, hey, we’re all adults here. We like to be able to have a couple drinks and relax in the sun without having to worry about packing on extra pounds. We don’t want all our hard work we put in at the gym offset.
So what do we do?
We use healthier alcohol! Sure, it’s not those Session IPA’s we have come to know and love, or those colorful and fruity cosmos you have to balance in those absurd glasses, but the ends justify the means in this situation.
Tito’s is a handmade vodka made from organic yellow corn and is virtually sugar-free and totally gluten-free. At a mere 60 calories per serving, this is one of the healthiest alcohols you can use.
That thirst isn’t going to quench itself. So, here are 5 delicious and natural adult drink recipes using Tito’s Vodka. And we even removed all sugary sodas and juice concentrates for that extra boost of freshness and healthiness.
1 oz. Tito’s Handmade Vodka
1 oz. Limoncello

VODKA BLUEBERRY COCKTAIL
1 liter of Tito’s Homemade Vodka
8 ounces of fresh organic blueberries
Evaporated cane juice
St. Germain or club soda
A simple infusion that is as beautiful to look at as to drink, this one is delicious served over ice, or mixed with a bit of St. Germain and club soda! Simmer all your fresh organic blueberries with 1 teaspoon organic evaporated cane juice over medium heat to help breakdown the fruit. Add to 1 liter of Tito’s Handmade Vodka and let sit 5 days, or until desired flavor is reached. If your blueberries aren’t sweet enough, add a bit more organic evaporated cane juice to taste. You can also use frozen blueberries for this recipe – the freezing actually helps the process along by breaking down the cell structures beforehand.
VODKA CUCUMBER COCKTAIL
One organic cucumber
1 liter of Tito’s Handmade Vodka
It’s a day at the spa in a glass!! Peel and dice you organic cucumber into 1/2-inch cubes, then add to 1 liter Tito’s Handmade Vodka. Let sit 5-7 days until desired flavor is reached, then strain and enjoy chilled with a splash of watermelon juice and topped with champagne!
1 1/2 oz Tito’s Handmade Vodka
3/4 oz Paula’s Texas Lemon or other limoncello
1/2 oz simple syrup
1/2 oz fresh limejuice
3 ripe strawberries
In the bottom of a mixing glass, muddle strawberries and simple syrup. Add Tito’s, limoncello, lime juice and ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a chilled cocktail glass or serve over ice in a small rocks glass. Garnish with a lemon twist and a fresh strawberry.
You can double, triple, quadruple or whatever you want for these drinks! They taste great and look festive for your Summer cookout or themed party.
Or simply make a personal drink and sit out in the sun and enjoy life. Just make sure to go to the gym before drinking them… not after.
