RA Sushi's Low-Cal Cocktails Let You Drink Away Holiday Stress in Style; We Have the Recipe

​This holiday season has been doing its damnedest to destroy your waistline. Luckily for you, we know a place serving some skinny cocktails, so you can drink away your holiday stress without adding to the carnage.

RA Sushi in South Miami has a sexy lineup of slimmed-down under-200-calorie drinks made with Voli vodka, including the Lychee-Teenie, Skinny Ninja, and Thin Ginger.

With this arsenal of low-cal drinks, you'll be ready to count down to the new year in style.

The folks at RA say a favorite is the Thin Ginger, and they describe it as "berry tasty." Even better, they shared the recipe with Short Order, so if you have a low-cal drinking emergency this week, you can whip one up yourself.

Thin Ginger

1.5 oz. Voli lemon vodka
.5 oz Monin agave nectar
.25 oz. yuzu purée
.25 oz. lemon juice
Splash of soda
Fresh ginger root, peeled
Lemon twist for garnish

​In a mixing glass, muddle the strawberry and ginger with agave. Add all the ingredients except soda and shake with ice. Strain into an ice-filled glass, and garnish with a strawberry and a lemon twist.

Cheers to 2012!
