I live for the few months of the year where I can relax on the patio sipping one of my new-found summer cocktail recipes and doing absolutely nothing. You know the kind of day to just kick back with a good book and zombie out.
But then, every year I realize I have no idea what new cocktail recipe I am going to make and I end up spending an hour googling summer cocktail recipe ideas. Anyone else been on this boat?
I myself prefer the skinny or lower-calorie cocktails so I can work on keeping my figure while indulging so this year I have pulled together a list of 11 mocktails and cocktails all under 140 calories to enjoy.
