Summer Cocktails – Skinny Grapfruit Splash

by Destini on July 19, 2013

Summer Summer Summer! Oh hey summer, so glad you made it!  I love how many festivals happen in our city during the summer.  Love that patios are filled with happy folks sharing and laughing over a couple cocktails. Love going to the cabin and just taking yourself away from everything back in the city! I just love SUMMER.

What I don’t like about summer is the soft gut I get from all those cocktails. This is why I like to find and make delicious cocktails that won’t make me feel guilty. And this has quickly become one of my favourites! Over the next couple weeks I have a few to share with you all! I have been testing them out with the family and friends. Gotta make sure they are tested!!

I love gin, but this recipe can be easily switched with vodka. But everything else is amazing…enjoy 🙂

Ingredients: Yields 1

  • 1.5oz gin (or vodka)
  • 1.5oz freshly squeezed grapefruit
  • 1oz of soda water
  • mint
  • ice
  • 1 stevia packet (or use liquid, I recently started using liquid & I like it better)

Directions: Muddle mint in the bottom of glass, add ice, gin, grapefruit, soda water &  stevia. Stir till all combined.

Garnish with mint, grapefruit, pretty straws. Also can always rim the glass with cocktail sugar

Perfect for bridal shower, baby showers…any shower? LOL

You can always only use 1oz of gin and it will be 93 calories, use of vodka will be even lower

I’ve made these a couple times now, actually I am enjoying one right now while I write this. Notice a pattern lately? LOL

Tonight G and I went to the gym to get a quick cardio session in.  Also worked on our cores and I did my upper body workout with Revolt. Pretty solid Friday if you ask me!

Next week I want to do a 3 day juice cleanse. I have been feeling abnormally exhausted as of late…..and NO I am not pregnant. I don’t need to lose weight, but thought this would be a wonderful way to restart my system. If anyone is interested, I will stat on Tuesday July 23rd till the 25th! I found this great plan all done for us already by Healthful Pursuit!! If anyone is interested in doing this with me, let me know in the comments below! We will all motivate each other to KEEP GOING on Twiter and Instagram. #healthywifereset.

Check out my outfit for tomorrow!! SOO excited!!

This girly has go to get ready for bed! I have my Color me Rad 5k tomorrow!! Have a great weekend!!

The Skinny Mojito

by Destini on August 23, 2012

If you recall on Tuesday’s post, I mentioned my mom’s tropical party included mojito’s. Well what kind of food blogger would I be if I didn’t share this recipe with you. It is easy, and it isn’t full of sugar that will go to those hips!

Ingredients: 1 drink, but the mix can be used for 5-6

  • 1pkg of Crystal Light Mojito Mix
  • 1.5l water
  • 1.5oz of Vodka or White Rum *note below*
  • 5 mint leaves
  • ice
  • limes sliced in 8ths

Directions: Mix water and mix together in a large jug. In a tall glass, place mint leaves, slice of a lime and using a pestle muddle till leaves are slightly wilted. Top off with ice, rum and mix. Stir and serve!

Note: This is up to you, but any of the alcohol you use, just make sure it’s clear

So delicious! Cheers 🙂

This weekend I am off to my best friends cabin for a all girls weekend! We do this every year! Very very excited!

Hope everyone has  a wonderful weekend 🙂

Question: What is your favorite drink drink? As fun as mojito’s are, I can usually only have one. I’m a red wine girl!
