The next big thing in premade cocktails
Things we do to stay fit: Take the stairs instead of the elevator, park the car in the farthest space from Whole Foods, work out at the gym five days a week (OK, so maybe it’s more like one and a half).
So why would we undo all of our hard work with one 450-calorie margarita?
Enter Austin Cocktails, a new brand of premade drinks that are both easy on the palate and low in calories (as in 100 calories per six-ounce serving).
Austin Cocktails come in four flavors--Cucumber Mojito, Paradise Found (a nice blend of coconut water, lemon and lime juices and basil), Tea Twister (which uses Kenyan-grown tea that’s organically sweeter than tea from Indonesia) and Vodkarita--and are made with a no-aftertaste vodka.
Yes, that’s right... a margarita that’s made with vodka.
Our favorites? The Cucumber Mojito--a subtle mint, lime juice and cucumber refresher--and the Vodkarita, which uses real limes and oranges to give a crisp, not-too-sweet spin on the traditional Mexican drink.
But stay tuned. We can’t help but think this Skinny Girl alternative is about to blow up.
