Now That Your Taxes Are Done, Unwind With These Skinny Cocktails

April 15 is always an annual looming deadline that every American adult dreads. Sure, it's nice to get a tax refund (if you are one of the lucky Americans who do). But getting your paperwork in order and poring over receipts, forms and documents from the past year can get exhausting. 

Whether you do your taxes yourself or hire someone to do them, it's always an amazing feeling when they are finally finished, and sent off to our best friends over at the IRS. After weeks of preparation and stressing over your taxes, it's time to relax and unwind with an adult beverage.

With your taxes filed away and done on April 15, the last thing you want to have to worry about is counting calories. Enjoy one of these delicious low-calorie cocktails which will give you that much-wanted buzz, without packing on the extra calories.

So turn on your favorite TV show, pour a drink and think about anything else besides your taxes. Except for that refund check that's on its way. That's a pretty cool thing to think about.
