Wanna meet for a drink.....?

So we are Mommas now...right?! Then we know the answer to this question is usually no. Gone are the days of going out for drinks after a long week at work. I could get a sitter but I enjoy putting Hayden to bed and I like to spend time at home also. If I can't hit up my local watering hole I bring it home. We are lucky to have a deck with a great view and My husband and I try to enjoy it as much as possible. With our unseasonably cool "Juneuary" weather we've been having in BC, we still need to crank the outdoor heater to enjoy the cool summer nights.
Here is a calorie conscious cocktail I created last weekend that I quite enjoyed.

  • Fill glass with ice
  • Add 1 ounce vodka - I used Van Gogh Blue at approx 60 calories per 1 ounce shot
  • 1/2 can Minute Maid Light Lemonade - 1 can 5 calories
  • Top with a splash of pomegranate liqueur - 1 ounce has 85 calories so about 15 calories per splash
  • Garnish with lime wheel

Sip this delicious cocktail at around 80 calories without sacrificing great taste!

Enjoy!! Pin It
