We may be going into the cooler months, but we are of the opinion that cocktails should be consumed all year around. Especially fabulously low-calorie cocktails that will make sure our summer bodies stay ‘intact’ all through winter! Belvedere Vodka suggest this refreshing, guilt-free recipe…and we’re going to give it a try! Ingredients: 30ml Belvedere, 30ml dry vermouth (recommendation: Martini Extra Dry), 3 lemon slices, 2 lime slices. Spritz glass filled with ice, topped with equal parts of sparkling water and tonic water.
Yes to the dress!
