Summery Citrus Blanc

Standard

This weekend was incredible! We went to a Cubs game and despite the weather in the morning, it turned out to be a beautiful day.  The Cubbies pulled out a win!!  We went to several of our favorite pre and post game spots as well as some new ones.  There as one theme I noticed at each bar, skinny cocktails.  These cocktails seem to be all the rage since the release of Skinnygirl margaritas.  I have to say they are pretty delicious, but the hubby and were looking for something a little different while grilling out.  We had several things on hand and just decided to experiment.  Well after a few failed attempts, this was the recipe we settled on.  It is so delicious, and for under 50 calories per drink you cannot go wrong.  This will definitely be an easy go to summer drink for us.  The below recipe makes one drink.

Summery Citrus Blanc

2 ounces vodka

2 ounces Savingnon Blanc wine

3/4 ounce Triple Sec

1/4 lemon juiced

1/2 lime juiced

cut lemons and limes for garnish

 

Add 1 cup of ice to a cocktail shaker.  Juice the 1/4 lemon and 1/2 lime in the shaker.  Add the vodka, wine, and triple sec.  Shake vigorously, then strain into highball glass filled with ice.  Garnish with additional lemons and limes. Enjoy!
