This New Years Eve remember that drinks count—they are virtually empty liquid calories that add up quickly. Kick off 2014 with a special cocktail! Don’t have your typical alcoholic beverage that you would have on any other day of the year. Make a drink with a New Year’s twist by mixing champagne with fruity liquors to make your cocktail unique, as featured in this week’s cocktail recipe, Double G Champagne. Cheers!
The recipe of Double G Champagne cocktail contains zero fat and zero cholesterol. Hence it is heart healthy and lowers cholesterol (LDL).
Add zero calorie soda water to your cocktails for extra fizz.
Yield: 1 Serving (5 fl oz)
In a champagne flute, add the saint germain and gin and then add the champagne. Top off your cocktail with soda water for extra fizz. Add optional fruit for a pop of color.
