Don't Feed the Models
In honor of this past Fashion Week I wanted to share this 178 calorie cocktail (with a hilarious name) which has become a new staple during cocktail hour at the Heimer Compound.
Damon Dunay, the Beverage Director at NYC's fabulous The Empire Hotel—created this Fashion Week cocktail named "Don't Feed The Models," a low-calorie (178!) drink that tastes like Indian summer. And hey, you might even look like Heidi after three or four!
Ingredients: 2 oz. Crop Organic Cucumber Vodka: 120 calories (typically vodkas have 100 calories per shot
.75 oz. Fresh Lime: 2 calories.
.75 oz. Simple Syrup: 40 calories.
.5 oz. Cucumber Juice: 4 calories.
Fresh Mint: 12 calories.
In a mixing glass, muddle one cucumber slice and combine all ingredients; shake vigorously. Strain into a Martini glass, garnish with a cucumber slice.
