Friday’s Cocktail of the Week…Skinny Lemon Drop Martini

Skinny Lemon Drop Martini:

My brain hurts! I’ve been spending a lot of time trying to finish existing projects – getting them completed or to the next level and it just takes so much dedication and hard work to get things done. I’m focused on all that I set out to accomplish so giving up is not an option! I’m constantly grinding, thinking, retooling and reinventing so when I can carve out some rest time, I can’t think of a better way than to make a skinny delicious cocktail for Friday night…and one that’s not going to put on any extra pounds after working out all week at Barry’s Bootcamp and Cardio Barre.

My Skinny Lemon Drop Martini is only 125 calories! How can it only be 125 calories? Because I eliminated the sugar and replaced it with organic blue agave for the sweetener but it taste like so much more! Summer is approaching quickly and here in my household we’ve cut down on all hard liquor and only drink wine at dinner but every now and then I need a refreshing cocktail that goes straight to the head and gets rid of the headache from grinding all week.

Try my Skinny Lemon Drop Martini and send me your comments to let me know if you like it or not. Summer is quickly approaching and…as we start to party more when the weather begins to heat up, I’ll be featuring new Skinny Cocktails on Fridays!

Happy Friday,
