The hardest part of maintaining a low-calorie diet for us is managing the intake of cocktails—we like to celebrate just about anything! That’s why we concocted this low(er) calorie coconut water skinny cocktail recipe!
Inspired by the ‘spa water’ trend, this drink is geared toward maintaining our waistline while still enjoying drinks with friends. Simply combine the vodka and coconut water then add a splash of pink lemonade and fresh lemon juice for flavor.
You don’t have to stick to ‘pink’ lemonade, the regular fare will do the trick—just be cautious not to add too much to your drink, especially if you want to keep the sugar to a minimum!
