As you are reading this, I am on my way to the shores of Connecticut for a week long vacation with five of my friends. While I'm off having a boozy beach week, you can have a boozy week too! In fact, the team over at Everyday Health recently shared with me their list of "Skinny Cocktails for any Occasion," which showcases summertime drinks with bold flavors, but minimal calories. I can't think of better time of year to share these drink recipes with you. Cocktails = good. Expanding waist line during beach season = bad.
How refreshing does the Skinny Strawberry Mojito look? I love mojitos and the addition of the strawberries helps to cut the flavor of the mint. This drink only has five ingredients and clocks in at just 80 calories!
Elderflower Sparkler combines two of my favorite cocktail ingredients: elderflower and champagne. Need I say more? Ok, I'll say one more thing - this winning combination is only 54 calories!
Brunch Bloody Mary that will only cost you 117 calories!
Do you have any low calorie cocktail recipes I can try this week with my friends?
