Fantastic Foodie Fridays~

Santa’s Super Skinny Cocktails

Usually, I would stick to my healthy recipes, but with the holidays about us I am going to digress ( with your kind indulgence ) just a bit.  If you need to think of these two as "healthy" think of all of the calories you will be saving if you drink these instead of another alternative.  With all the parties, food and alcohol, it can be hard to keep your waistline in check without feeling like you’re missing out. But this year Christmas came early with these two cocktails. At only 150 calories each, you can enjoy the festive cheer without over~indulging. Cheers!

Seasonal Sangria
1/2 oz pomegranate liqueur
1/2 oz cognac
1/2 oz spiced rum
4 oz apple cider
2 oz shiraz – to float on top
Assorted fruits
Orange garnish

Mix the pomegranate liqueur, cognac, spiced rum and apple cider together. Pour the shiraz on top of the mixture, and add in your desired fruits and the orange garnish. Enjoy!

Merry Martini

1.5 oz vodka
1/2 oz ginger liqueur
1/2 can lychee juice
8 mint leaves
Lychee & mint leaves garnish

Mix the vodka, ginger liqueur, lychees and mint leaves together in a shaker. Add the garnish to desired taste. Enjoy!
