Summer Cocktail Fridays - Post 1

YEP!  You read that right!  COCKTAILS!!!

The Alley Cat and I are all about having our summer fiestas but know those fun summer drinks  can pack in a whopping 500 calories or more in a single drink undoing all of your efforts with your workouts. 

Every Friday for the month of June we will share recipes with you on how to redo the classics into healthier versions and maybe some new stuff too so that you can enjoy the sun with your favorite drink in hand!

The Bloody Mary
Scrap the mix!  The mixture is loaded with calories and kind of takes the fun out of Bloody Marys. 
I miss going to Bloody Mary bars and making up my own concoctions....so, so fun experimenting and creating the PERFECT Blood Mary! 
To make a Bloody Mary from scratch begin with ¾ cup of no sugar-added, low-sodium tomato juice and pour over ice.  Add the juice of ½ a lemon, a dash each of hot sauce and Worcestershire sauce, fresh ground pepper, and 1 shot of vodka. Garnish with a lemon wedge and celery stick.   ADD MORE PROTEIN by garnishing with cocktail shrimp!

Bloody Mary With Lemon Isolated









Citrus Ruby-ita
Juice of 1/2 Ruby Red Grapefruit
juice of 1/2 Orange
juice of 1/2 Lemon
juice of 1/2 Lime
1 shot of Tequila (get the good light stuff, silver or white)

Salt the rim of your cocktail glass and fill it with ice. Using a cocktail shaker, pour and combine the grapefruit, orange, lemon and lime juices. Shake the cocktail shaker, then strain into your glass.

More Drinks to Come!  Experiment!  Share your drinks with us in the comments!
