With summer just round the corner it can be tough to say no to a cocktail. The main problem for your health isn;t the alcohol content (though it will be if you don;t drink sensibly), but the insane amount of sugar you end up downing. That doesn’t mean you have to forgo cocktail entirely this summer, follow expert mixologist Claire Smith's recipes and you'll be able to have tipple without running the risk of becoming diabetic. All the recipes use Belvedere vodka because it doesn't contain any sugar, glycerine, additives or enhancers.
