I must admit that I do like sipping a margarita when I eat Mexican food and Cinco de Mayo seems like a perfect time for that! Since bathing suit season is just around the corner, I’m eating mindfully and working out, so the calorie packed cocktail will have to wait until later! So how does a party girl get her Ole’ on?
One of the vodka choices I enjoy is Voli Vodka Light. It’s proclaimed to be the world’s first low-calorie fruit and fusion flavored vodka with an average of 25% to 40% lower in calories than other brands. Voli is also sugar-free and cones in multiple fruit flavors Enjoy your Cinco de Mayo and this lovely Latin Lover a little lighter in calories, but not taste! Cheers!
1.5 oz Voli Orange Vanilla
