How to Make a Great Diet Cranberry Vodka Cocktail Drink

By Kelly Brown

A diet cranberry vodka cocktail is a refreshing alcoholic drink. Sometimes called a Cape Codder, the drink is low-calorie because vodka is sugar-free and has about 100 calories per 1.5 oz serving. Regular cranberry juice has about 70 calories per 4 oz., while diet cranberry has about 20 to 25 calories for the same size serving. It is possible to make a 6 oz. diet cranberry cocktail for less than 200 calories.

Diet cranberry vodka cocktails are low in calories.
