This Sunday all eyes will be on Hollywood as we honor the motion picture industry at the 84th Annual Academy Awards.  It’s great fun to invite friends over to dress up , take a lovely walk down the red carpet and enjoy some themed food and cocktails. Here are a few featuring Voli Light Vodka. After nearly two years of working with leading mixologists, vodka connoisseurs, and premier producers of distinguished spirits, Voli has introduced the first low calorie, delicious fruit and fusion flavored vodkas which average between 25% and 40% lower calories than leading brands.Welcome to the fusion of light and delicious. These cocktails have between 140 and 160 calories so I invite you to celebrate the magic of movie making and be able to fit into your Oscar gown!  Cheers!
