My Favorite Cocktail, Only 95 Calories!

image
Did you know that a cosmopolitan can contain over 300 calories? If you're counting your calories everyday, this is a pretty big portion of your meals. Instead of filling your daily intake by drinking empty calories, try my favorite cocktail, the Voli Pink Lemonade, only 95 calories!

I like to use Voli Light Vodkas because it has 25%-40% fewer calories than other vodkas. Also, their flavored vodkas are made with natural ingredients. To make Pink Lemonade, I use Voli lemon vodka. Here's the receipe:

Pink Lemonade
2 oz. Voli Lemon
1 oz. lemon juice
3/4 oz. simple syrup or 1 sweetner
Splash of club soda
Splash of diet or regular cranberry juice

Method: Add all ingredients except club soda.
Shake and strain over ice. Top with club soda.

Glass: Highball

This is my favorite cocktail at the moment, but Voli has a bunch of other yummy low calorie mixes on their website, like the cucumber martini, sympathy for the devil, blushing berry, the flirt and the creamsicle. Check out more low calorie recipes here.

What's your signature drink?

From a girl so far removed from your life it's unreal. I watch you and the other girls with a passion I normally don't have for TV. I'm from the 'reserved' country of england. I aspire to be more like you. A confident, Intelligent, vocal, strong, PATIENT friend!!! I thik you're great. And I want to thank you for inspiring me! I have a long way to go before I can be as 'sure' of myself as you. I used to have an eating disorder also, I have struggled for years with my body image, but I'm getting there!!!! And you know what, I'm getting better with each day. You inspire me. I can be strong. I can be sexy. I can be smart. Thank you so much. And good luck with everything. All my love, your loyal English Rose x

Probably twice as many calories . . . but one of my favorite summer cocktails is my own. Sure it's got a name out there somewhere but I call it Olivia's Gin and Tonic. Gin+Tonic+Fresh lime on ice with just a splash of Peach Schnapps. Yummy!!
