With summer winding down, it's likely you and your friends have exhausted every outdoor bar, club and hot spot in town, making it the perfect time to enjoy a girl's night in. While wearing pajamas, listening to girlie songs and applying anti aging skincare masks like the Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask can be fun, adding low-cal cocktails to the mix could make the gathering that much better.
Here are a few options to sip on at your next ladies-only event:
If you're already curious about this drink due to its funky name, your taste buds are sure to love you after you take the first sip. According to Redbook magazine, for this guilty-free cocktail you'll need 2 ounces Suerte tequila blanco, 8 ounces San Pellegrino limonata and lime slices to garnish with.
When you have all of the ingredients in hand, fill a tall glass with ice and then pour in the tequila. Follow up with the San Pellegrino, stir and add a lime slice on the rim for a taste of happiness.
Even though there are plenty of low-cal margarita mixes on the market these days, there's no doubt that a homemade drink tastes best. For this classic concoction you'll need 1 1/4 ounces Suerte tequila, 1/2 ounce triple sec, 3 ounces sugar-free sour, 2 orange wedges and 2 lime wedges.
Begin this beverage by salting the rim of your favorite glass. Next, combine all ingredients except the fruit wedges in a shaker filled with ice and mix up the items vigorously. Pour the shaken ingredient into the glass and then top it off with more ice cubes. Grab the lime and orange slices and squeeze them in the glass, adding them into the mix after they're fully drained.
Add a fresh lime slice to the side of the rim and serve to your appreciative guests.
Last up on the list is a fabulous mojito. According to Glamour magazine, this lemon-lime take on the classic drink is sure to impress. Start this low-cal cocktail by gathering 5 ounces of Lemon Lime Sparkling ICE, 1 1/2 ounces of white rum, 6 mint leaves (lightly muddled) and a splash of lime (either freshly squeezed or bottled lime juice).
Combine all of the ingredients in a shaker filled with ice, shake vigorously and then pour the mixture into a tall glass. Garnish with a lime slice for a sexy vibe.
