Fantastic Foodie Friday~ Guilt-Free Margarita
Guilt-Free Cocktail Cheats
Unwinding with a delicious cocktail after a long day is a great way to relax, but mixed drinks can pack some serious calories. Luckily, mixologist Anthony Caporale has created 3 guilt-free versions of cocktail classics: the margarita, the pomegranate martini and sangria. By using real fruit juice instead of sugary mixes, sugar substitutes and more flavorful liquors, Caporale has taken the extra calories out of these drinks without losing any of the flavor.
After the week I have just been through, this is much needed! Cheers! XoXo
