The Trainer Approved is a cocktail created for Absolut Los Angeles vodka. Fresh lemon juice and the simple syrup substitute, agave nectar, create a "healthy" base for the drink and accent the acai, blueberry, pomegranate and acerola cherry of the new vodka. The result is a refreshing highball that is perfect for summer.
