    Bourbon lemonade: 2 oz bourbon, 1.5 oz pure lemon juice...aka not from concentrate. Shredded fresh ginger (if you're fancy), and ice (if you want it).

    Midori Splash = 1 to 2 oz Midori Melon Liquor (depends on how melon-y you want it) + 6 oz Sprite Zero.

    Very refreshing on a hot day. Goes well with fruit and sorbet.

    Why? What do you serve?
    I posted that chart to show the calories in popular drinks... I'm hoping for people to post their low-calorie favorites!
    What is your favorite low-calorie drink? :)

    I usually go for wine. If I want lower calorie I have... less wine.

    Rye and diet all the way....😂
    Sometimes I’ll mix it up and do vodka with orange perrier sparkling water and a splash of orange juice.

    This. Especially if I'm looking for something to give me a bit of a buzz. Wine packs a better punch for the amount/cal. than almost any other drink (for me).

    It only takes 5 - 8 oz of red wine to give me a buzz (mild), but takes several shots of hard liquor to do the same (and they aren't usually as tasty).

    Over the 3 day weekend, I drank my homemade lemonade (recipe above, I use pure stevia instead of sugar) and strawberry-infused vodka (and a few shots here n there of other liquor) and was careful with all the bad yummy food - I only gained .4 lbs! Yay!!! :) Much better than previous years of this 3 day weekend!!!
