  • I have a great low calorie drink that is just the thing on a wonderful summer's evening while sitting with friends and loved ones and you don't have to worry about it staying on your hips!

    I usually make these as separate drinks but you can combine them all into a large pitcher as well.

    Spring Mist:

    2 shots Barcardi Peach Rum (I always overpour my shots! Lol.)

    Followed with equaled portions of Light Grapefruit Juice and Light Cranberry Juice.

    Garnish with lemon, lime or even mango (where available)

    I know it doesn't sound potent, but a couple of these and you will feel light in the tummy and the head. Lol.

    Great blog Ivy!

  • One measurement correction: In your Summertime Punch, 750ml of bourbon is around 25 ounces, not 6.

    So do you mean a full 750ml bottle, or 6 ounces?

  • Thank you for the head's up about the error. I make the correction in the test.

    The punch needs to have the 750ml bottle, hard to read these recipes that are scribbled on scraps of paper.

    Especially after enjoying a couple of sips!
