432281 10150546445462062 226745938 n Low Calorie Cocktails with TruviaLast year when we visited Tales of The Cocktail, we were given samples of their new “Bar/Tea” packaging. It was made specifically for the health conscious mixologist in mind and we can’t help but think this is the perfect time to share some of the awesome recipes that Truvia has created for those looking to have a drink, and not regret it later. This is the time of year when we’re all looking to shed those excess pounds we gained from the holidays, and with such an emphasis on “Skinny cocktails” these days, an all natural low calorie sweetener might be your best friend.

“Low-calorie cocktails are an emerging trend that could reinvent the cocktail industry. Truvia® Natural Sweetener is the first natural, great-tasting, zero-calorie sweetener, born from the leaves of the stevia plant. It has unique qualities that make it a perfect ingredient to use in cocktails.”
