Most store-bought, zero-calorie flavored waters and teas taste great with liquor. You can also make your own. Just soak fruit or vegetables, like cucumber or red bell pepper, in water and refrigerate for 24–48 hours. Strain the liquid and pair in a 2:1 ratio with vodka, says Rios. You can also pour any of these into an ice-cube tray and freeze for later use.
Try it out by filling a glass with green-tea ice cubes. Top with 11⁄2 oz vodka, a splash of diet ginger ale, and a twist of lime.
