Molly Sims' Skinny Moscow Mule

Cut the calories in your cocktail with smart and flavorful swaps. Mix up a Moscow mule like Molly Sims does, with ginger-flavored soda water and fresh ginger slices instead of ginger beer. If you want to keep it virgin, simply skip the vodka and finish with fresh and cool mint leaves.
