Sparkling Watermelon Sangria

Categories: Cocktails, SangriaTags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , Author:

It’s a gloomy spring Sunday in the Northeast, and we need something fun and fruity to cheer us up. Since we’re still in our Spanish kick, we decided to do this very tasty low-cal sangria drink.

Makes 1 pitcher

  • 1 bottle of Spanish cava (or your favorite sparkling wine, Prosecco or Champagne)
  • 2- 12 oz bottles of IZZE low-calorie watermelon soda
  • 8 oz of Triple Sec
  • 1 small seedless watermelon

Split the watermelon in half and using a melon baller, scoop out one half of the fruit into a pitcher. Carve out the pulp from the rest of the fruit, saving a couple of slices for garnish, and strain out as much water as possible (we used a very fine strainer). Add the water from the fruit to the pitcher with the rest of the ingredients. Let it rest in the refrigerator for an hour before serving to let the flavors come together. Salud!

Skinny Old Fashioned

Categories: CocktailsTags: , , , , , , , Author:

Some days, I just need to have a real cocktail…especially when it’s been raining all day like it has been doing in Maplewood.  It was just the type of weather to make one crave an Old Fashioned. We’re calling our version “skinny” since instead of sugar, we’re using Sprite Zero!

Makes 2 cocktails

  • 6 oz Maker’s Mark
  • 6 oz Sprite Zero
  • orange bitters
  • lemon wedges
  • Maraschino cherries

Muddle the cherries, lemon and a couple of dashes of orange bitters in lowball glasses. Add ice to each glass, then the bourbon and Sprite, and enjoy one very low-cal cocktail!
