With the holiday weekend coming, when you’ re looking for a signature beverage that looks like it jumped quickly a spa cuisine menu for less than 140 calories, this is it! Created using muddled cucumbers, basil, lemon fruit juice, gin and a splash of seltzer, it’ s light and summery and perfect to serve at the next party.
This cocktail formula is from a great new book I simply got, 150-Calorie Drinks; All Natural Drinks and Snacks . Filled with lots of great cocktails I intend on trying this summer as well as tips on how to create a low calorie cocktail. Some tips consist of choosing a lower-proof liquor, skipping shop bought syrups and prepared combines, choosing seltzer over tonic drinking water (did you know tonic water has been 90 calories per cup! ) and something I often do, including seltzer to wine to make a spritzer.
