Thirsty Thursday: Fun Low-Cal Irish Cocktails

While searching for the perfect green drinks to enjoy this Saturday, I wanted to narrow down the search to something different, but still skinny and delicious.  I found these three, and I think they’ll do just the trick!

Get Lucky Margarita
67 calories, 10 grams sugar

A take on the healthy margarita, this yummy cocktail has shockingly few calories. A little sweet and a lot boozy, the St. Patty’s Day-themed drink is enhanced by a splash of freshly squeezed lime.

3 oz. Kiwi Strawberry Sparkling ICE
1 oz. tequila
Splash of triple sec
Fresh squeezed lime

Shake and pour into a chilled rocks glass rimmed in salt.

Shamrock Shot
149 calories, 13.5 grams sugar

No St. Patrick’s Day party is complete without a shamrock shot among friends. Melon liquor infuses each one of these lower-calorie libations with flavor and a festive green hue.

2 oz. vodka
1 oz. DeKuyper® Melon Liqueur
Splash of lemon lime soda

Combine in cocktail shaker with ice, shake, pour and serve.

Kiss Me, I’m Irish
206 calories, 4.5 grams sugar

This lucky, low-cal cocktail gets its bright green color from melon liquor and its refreshing taste from sparkling wine. Every bubbly sip is worth the 206 calories this drink will cost you.

2 1/2 oz. VOGA Sparkling
1 oz. Midori Melon Liquor
1 oz. vodka
1 1/2 oz. lemonade

In a shaker, combine ice, VOGA Sparkling, vodka, and lemonade. Stir gently and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

While most of us will still have hangovers come Sunday morning,
at least we won’t regret the extra calories we had drinking Guiness and Harp!
Do you have other fun cocktail recipes you’ve tried in the past, to celebrate St. Patty’s Day?
Do tell!

Thanks for the recipes,!
