I’m a girl who enjoys a good cocktail now and again, especially in the summer. I tend to switch up from my standard vodka soda with cranberry during the summer months dubbing it “my summer drink”. This summer I have dabbled in a few special summer drinks that I have skinnified for ya!
- Agave nectar
- Club soda
- Fresh mint
- Splenda (not pictured- depends how sweet you like your draaaanks!)
I guessed on the amounts for all of these so I suggest you do the same. Play around with it. Be careful with the agave, start with just a little bit and work your way up, it is very syrupy so it can ruin the drink if you overdo it.
I was very reluctant to try Bethany Frankel’s Skinny Girl Margarita mix. I never think premixed beverages ever taste good or have the -ahem- “appropriate” amount of alcohol. I was shocked when I tried it though to find it was tasty and just about as strong as I like it! I used splenda instead of salt to line the rim of the glass which is a nice little trick. SkinnyGirl is sweetened with natural agave nectar and has only 100 cals per 4 oz serving! I give this a two thumbs up and can’t wait to try her new sangria!
This is so refreshing and has just the right amount of sweetness without being too over powering. You gotta get the mini frozen blubes though, it totally makes the drink! I got mine at costco, they are great for smoothies too!
