"Healthy" Cocktails

 So I had a craving for some Sangria, but usually I make it with a few different kinds of fruit juice and it can get pricy. Also lots of sugar in the fruit juices. So I had a thought. I had some Walmart brand Crystal Light type stuff (Cherry Limeade flavored). I mixed it with some red wine (cabernet) and added some strawberries for the fruit. It wasn't too bad! I mean, not as great as my normal Sangria but not too shabby either. And guilt free! I think next time though I'm going to add in some Sprite Zero to it :o)  

Anyone else have their own "healthy" receipes for adult drinks? I usually reach for a Michelob Ultra when I want to drink something but I was wanting something summertimey/ girly to drink :o)

lol I usually make calories for a class of shock top (beer) my favorite.

I also really love cranberry juice and grape vodka, and now I half the juice and put in sparkling water or club soda.  Still yummy. :)

 That sounds yummy! I like vodka and grapefruit juice but I tried the sugar free kind and it was pretty gross.

So funny...I was thinking the same thing!! Crystal Light has Mohito, Margarita, Appletini and another one. No calories from that and add your own twist. Great minds do think alike!! LOL

 I didn't know they had that! Is it by the regular crystal light stuff or the drink mixes? I'm going to have to try that out :o)

I do vodka and cranberry if I haven't saved my calories but if I can afford the calories I like kona beer, long board, or wine.

I know Hungry Girl has recipes like that and also Bethanny from the Real Housewives has a company called Skinnygirl that makes bottled light alcoholic drinks I think at Walmart but I don't ever see them at my Walmart but I am in the middle of nowhere, lol

I love the margarita one even without the alcohol... All you need is some salt and a lime wedge lol
