Light Cocktail Recipes

Once the weather starts to warm up and happy hour moves outdoors, the idea of a sweet tropical cockail becomes more and more appealing. A refreshing glass of sangria, a minty mojito, or a creamy pina colada might tempt you when you meet your friends for cocktails at your favorite outdoor locale. 

But beware! These drinks are very often laden with calories and drinking only a couple of them can be worse for your waistline than French fries or even ice cream! So the next time a craving strikes, invite your friends over and whip up a batch of these slimmed-down concoctions. Trust us, they're so delicious you won't miss all those calories.
