Summer (under 100 calories) cocktail

The slow start to the summer this year allows me plenty of time to search the aisles of your favourite grocery stores to come up with some new snacks and beverages. Here is a new one for beverage for you along with the ingredients. A special shout out to the gang at Superstore, especially the buyer who is coming up with these new juices without all that sugar.

1 part White Wine CBG is a favourite (cheap but good), the Italian Montalto 2006 Pinot Grigio

1 part Ocean Spray Diet Low Calorie Beverage made with Splenda - we recommend Ruby Pomegranate

1 part President's Choice Blue Menu Sparking Fruit Juice Beverage - we recommend the Pomegranate Cranberry with apple, white grape, lemon, orange and aronia berry juice

Fill a large wine glass with ice, add the juice and wine and a chunk of lemon. Enjoy!!

    I totally thought you were going with the Skinny Girl cocktail (needs work) so excited to see something else under 100 calories--definitely give it a try this long weekend!

    Hi Missy, That sounds good but I have a suggestion: Replace all the ingredients with ice, a couple of ounces Stoli and fresh O.J. Now we're talkin'
