Diet Cocktails

Diet Cocktails

a moment of truth: I confess that i have been trying to diet unsuccessfully for quite a bit , sometimes during the week i succeed and when th eweekend comes and we go out, all the resolve goes out of the window with the first drink. All that follows is the french fries and chips and glucamole dipped tacos. Ahem, Well I thought, why not carry the resolve onto the weekend with some diet friendly drinks...the recipe courtesy goes to my dear friend Liz and fellow cocktail drinkers, and i realise that finding the ingrediets is quite a task in India(for eg Baja Bob's martini Mixes and Minute maid light juices ), but in the following series i will indeed add more to the cocktails page on home made exotic infusions, serve them up in your party and get busy receiving the calls for recipe from next day on...for now you can have a rollicking time slugging all the cocktails without blowing your diet up and damaging your waistline.
