3 Fun Frozen Summer Cocktails to Spice Up Any Party

“In the summertime when the weather’s hot……” That’s right. Summer is almost here and it’s time to start thinking about frozen drinks. Of course, some frozen drinks can be a bit high in calories. Take the classic pina colada, for example. Pina coladas can be loaded in fat and calories. Thankfully, you don’t have to consume 1,000 calorie drinks this summer. Here are three frozen cocktail recipes that won’t go straight to your hips.

Light Pina Coladas

Pina coladas have been a summer favorite for decades. Heck, there’s even a few songs about them. However, they are absolutely loaded with fat and calories. However, this recipe is much healthier for those of you who are counting liquor calories. By substituting the cream of coconut with coconut milk, you’ll save several grams of fat and hundreds of calories.

5 Old Favorites

Sometimes you can’t beat the classics – the drinks that have been served for decades. Of course, there’s a reason these drinks have stood the test of time and it all boils down to great taste. Whether you’re sipping a classic martini or kicked back on a southern porch with a mint julep, there are some cocktails that you can’t go wrong with. Here are just five old favorites to get you started.

Classic Martini

The classic martini is a blend of gin and vermouth. While many choose to make this cocktail with vodka, that’s not what a true martini is. When ordering this classic drink, be prepared for the cocktail to contain gin and a juicy, salty olive, which makes this classic martini so memorable.

Special SuperBowl Margarita

Here’s something extra special in light of SuperBowl weekend. The TipsyBartender has put together a quick little tutorial showing you how to make a super delicious SuperBowl Blue Bulldog Margarita.

If you want to cut down on the alcohol calories, make sure you ditch the full-calorie Corona for a Corona Light (and share that huge 45oz. beverage with a friend or two). Enjoy and have a safe weekend!
