Staying Skinny on Fat Tuesday

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Happy Fat Tuesday everyone. Mardi Gras is officially here, and while we weren’t able to attend this year (don’t worry, we’ll be in Nola drinking in July), we are there in spirit. In the meantime we wanted to share a few festive Mardi Gras cocktails that put a Skinny twist on Fat Tuesday. If you’re not concerned about shaving a few calories, don’t worry, these drinks taste great anyway, but for those of us working on those spring and summer bodies, these won’t ruin your waistline. Try them all and let us know what you think!
