Kettle One or Patron – Low Calorie Cocktails

 

It’s the weekend!!!  Let’ unwind with a delicious cocktail.

Cocktails can be enjoyed even while on your fitness journey. It’s all about the ingredients!  The sweet  “MIXERS” add on the calories like no other – being that they consist mainly of sugar. That’s where you have to be careful . So what we like to do is swap out the artificial flavored sweet mixers for fresh fruit.  

Fit Tip: If you’re out at bar or restaurant and don’t have access to fresh fruit, always go for the lower calorie cocktails like, Wine, Mojitos, Skinny girl Margaritas, Vodka with a “splash” of soda, etc– and a fresh lime or lemon.

Ingredients: 

  • Kettle One or Patron (your choice)
  • 6 organic strawberries
  • 1 lime (cut in half)
  • mint leaves (to your liking) 
  • crushed ice
  • muddler
  • small bowl
  • cocktail shaker

Instructions:

1. Remove leaves from strawberries, slice them in half, and place them in a small bowl. Use a muddler to mash the berries until they are mashed and flat. 

2.  With a spoon,  scoop a tablespoon of the berries from the bowl and place in glass. 

3.  In a cocktail mixer, add half a cup of shaved ice then Pour your desired amount of alcohol into the mixer.  Squeeze 1/2 of the cut  fresh lime juice in the cocktail shaker.  Cover and shake well.  *Drink Responsibly* 

4. Pour the well shaken cocktail in the glass with the muddled berries. Add fresh mint leaves. 

Enjoy! 

*Note: I sliced from the other 1/2 of the lime to add to my glass. feel free to add more lime or strawberries. 

Question?????  Can you guess which one of us  had the Kettle One & who had the Patron? 🙂
