28’s Home Nutrition Program (portions based on our Women’s ‘Healthy Weight Maintenance’ Eating Plan)
Make your own lighter, healthier version of a 'hard seltzer' cocktail. At only 79 calories, this is the perfect summer sparkling cocktail, with a touch of citrus and only one standard serve of alchoho per glass. Of course if you want to reduce the alcohol content, just halve the vodka quantity, or leave it out altogether for a refreshing sparkling citrus soda to quench your thirst.
