Skinny Summer Cocktails

Whether lounging by the pool or socializing at a summer BBQ, it’s not truly summer unless you have an ice cold beverage in your hand. However, with the average serving of alcohol containing 115 calories before the mixers are added, your calories can add up quickly. You could think well I’ll just drink fewer cocktails, but make them stronger. While that is a sly idea, the higher the proof, the greater the calories. But don’t fret, try some of Skinnygirl‘s guilt-free yet still delicious, skinny summer cocktails all under 150 calories per drink:
