Question Happy Hour!

OK! I'm sure this has been discussed, but I didn't see anything from what I've looked at so far (aka I'm a newbie).

So... my coworkers and friends and I like (and by like, I mean LOVE) to go to happy hour and kick back with some adult beverages and de-stress once a week. I can (usually) keep away from the bar food.. but those beers taste soo good!

So my question to all of you chicks out there that enjoy happy hour is this: How do you handle happy hour? What's your skinny beverage of choice??

Vodka gimlet -- vodka and lime juice -- isn't a bad choice.

Although I don't really drink -- I have a diet soda and enjoy that, LOL

I am in the same boat. Omitting drinking all together (although I did cut down ALOT) just wasn't going to happen! I normally go for MGD 64 with a lime - for some reason I like it much better with the lime and have gotten a lot of people hooked on it. My other go to's are vodka and club with a lime. OR a skinny margarita which is basically tequila, a splash of triple sec and a few lime wedges (or several depending on how strong you like your drinks).

If you are drinking in home - the skinny girl brand margarita and sangria are delicious. Enjoy happy hour!

I've just discovered Zilch margarita mix - www.zilchmixers.com

They're packets of powder that you mix with tequila & water or rum & water. I am definitely NOT a margarita snob, but I really like these. I usually ask for extra lime.

If I'm really wanting gin & tonic, I've found that gin & club soda with lime is an acceptable bar substitute. Bars never have diet tonic.

Default Cremesicle shots so yum

I found this delicious cremesicle shots recipe and they are only 70 calories!

Makes about 2 shots

Ingredients:
1 oz. orange juice
1 oz. half & half
1 oz. Voli Orange Vanillia
Splash of Grand Marnier

Directions:
Place all four ingredients into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously for about 15-20 seconds, ensuring that the mixture is ice cold. Strain into two shot glasses and enjoy!

Calories: 70 per shot


you should def try this sometime

otherwise I usually try to go for drinks with low cal vodka's like Voli vodka. It has electrolytes and its flavored.

One glass of wine and club soda for the rest of the time unless it's too expensive... i will order water without a problem. i'm not usually invited to the happy hours though. shrug.

Try vodka and diet soda with lots of lemon! Also, I've tried Voli vodka lyte which is really smooth and only like ~50 calories. Good luck!
