The mixologists at ReBar in Phoenix, cut back on the alcohol and focus on organic, multi-distilled spirits and fresh citrus to brighten this mixer-free spin on a margarita. It has about 100 calories, a fraction of what you'd find in the typical citrus-sour treat.

1 ounce vodka

1 lime, juiced

Splash fresh orange juice

2 ounces calorie-free citrus soda

2 ounces club soda

Lime wedge (garnish)

Mix vodka and juices in a cocktail shaker with 1 cup of ice. Strain into a tall glass. Finish with sodas. Garnish with lime.
