Today, friends, is a little break from the norm. I gotta say that sometimes we mama just need to kick up our feet and have cocktail time at the end of a long day. That being said, my blogging girlfriend, Laura from Lalymom, is guest posting today to bring you this easy, low-calorie whiskey sour recipe!
Hello, new friends! I’m Laura and while the name of my blog is LalyMOM, I do have a life outside of being a mom. Sometimes I like to have a glass of wine or a cocktail but a lot of drinks can really take their toll on your waistline! We also have friends and family who follow a low carb or low sugar diet so it is nice to have mixed drinks that we can all enjoy!
Enter my fabulous husband, LalyDad. One night we were watching a movie and he had the bright idea to make a mixed drink using Mio Lemonade-Flavored Water Enhancer. Genius! It is our new go-to mixer now! BTW… Mio Water Enhancer is a little squeezable liquid water enchancer that can be purchased most places where groceries are sold. But if your family loves it as much as ours does (our kids love it in their water), you may want to just buy in bulk from Amazon and have it delivered to your door.
Anyways… the stats on this skinny Whiskey Sour Recipe versus a Classic Whiskey Sour, a Classic Whiskey Sour with Egg White and one made with Sour Mix. will have you craving this low-cal cocktail every time!
I think this is a pretty good calorie savings without sacrificing taste! So… are you ready to try it?! Here you go, give it a whirl!
Skinny Whiskey Sour
- 1.5 oz Whiskey or Bourbon
- 4 oz water
- 1 light squirt which is about half a teaspoon Lemonade Flavored Mio

That’s it! If you are watching your calories, sugar intake or carbs, I really do recommend these Mio Water Enhancers, they are tasty and handy since they come in such small bottles!
