3, 2, 1!…Time for cocktails!
NYE is all about the glitz, glam and of course the champagne! Everyone wants to spend the last day of the year & the beginning of the new year in style (& possibly a little buzzed.) I made 3 NYE inspired cocktails, that are not only delicious, but super simple to make (& cost effective). You’ll need less than 4 ingredients for each of them (you probs already have them in your kitchen anyway.) Oh!…and each drink is low on calories! So you can start working on that New Year resolution to get fit, even before the clock strikes midnight!
So lets get on to the drinks!…
- Izze Sparkling Blackberry
- Strawberries & blackberries
- Thyme (to garnish)
I’m not a huge blackberry fan, but surprisingly I really liked this drink! It had a subtle sweet flavor and it tasted FRESH, not super sugary.
Classic Bubbly with a Twist
I love prosecco, it’s a classic that will never get old & an absolute must at all my events! I gave it a little twist by squeezing a slice of grapefruit into each glass and putting some diced up strawberries at the bottom to give it a fresh citrus-y flavor. The strawberries sink to bottom and absorb the prosecco. My favorite part is eating the yummy prosecco infused strawberries once I’ve finished my drink.
- Diet OceanSpray Cranberry & Lime
- Triple Sec
- Orange slice
I can’t get over how good this cosmo was, and I added up the calories of all the ingredients… it was less that 100 calories! It’s the perfect guiltless drink. Bonus: it takes less than 5 minutes to make. I recommended chilling the vodka and shaking up all the ingredients with a ton of ice! That way it is super cold and refreshing!
I hope you all have a fabulous NYE!
See you in 2019!
