Skinny Cocktails For Mother’s Day
Ah Mother’s Day. When mom’s get to spend the whole day with the people she picks up after every other day of the week. Don’t worry moms, I have a few cocktail recipes just for you. Whether you’re celebrating mom, or you want one (or two) to get your through the interrogation as to why she isn’t a grandmother yet, I have cocktail recipes for you, too! Fruity, creamy, refreshing, and bubbly, something for everyone.
Oh and they’re lower in calories, so mom, and you, won’t have to worry about drinking these and eating the box of chocolates you gave her. ;-)
