Enjoy your cocktails without the calories
School is out, the sun is shining, and you are ecstatic that summer is finally here. Warm month schedules means less rushing for the bus or to after school activities. There will be more time to hang with family and friends! That means BBQs, backyard parties, really any excuse to gather with a group and eat yummy food and sip on delicious drinks, especially fun when the drinks are made “light” so you can enjoy your cocktails without the calories.
