Fiery Mandarin – sugar free
The fancy cocktail addiction… happy hour at The Edge bar at The Sanctuary at Camelback. The Fiery Mandarin – Grey Goose, jalapeño, orange zest, cranberry & lemon juice, and a packet of Splenda. The staff was perfect in that they ‘got it’ and left out the simple syrup leaving a crisp sugar free drink but for the splash of citrus juice.The staff was perfect in that they ‘got it’ and left out the simple syrup leaving a crisp sugar free drink but for the splash of citrus juice.
- Zest of ½ tangerine or orange
- Juice of half lemon
- 1 packet Splenda
- 1 slice fresh jalapeno

- Muddle the zest with the Splenda - add the jalapeno slice and muddle gently. Add vodka, cranberry & lemon juice, ice and shake. Serve straight up in chilled martini glass.
- My friends and I are all in the eight to ten year post op range and an occasional adult beverage (especially one that respects sugar limitations) can be a part of the enjoyment and celebration of life. Never drink and drive, understand that alcohol affects you very differently than it used to, and do not indulge unless you are with someone with whom you can trust with your life.
