The Twelfth Cocktail of Christmas: Twelve Skinny Santas


On the twelfth day of Christmas my true love gave to me twelve skinny Santas, eleven pitchers of pompelmo, ten gingerbread men a leaping, nine cran-merry margaritas, eight bloody merry maids a milking, seven sparkling swans a swimming, six geese a laying snowflakes, FIVE BOX OF WINE, four calling birds (who live in a spice tree), three French martinis, two turtlenecks and Campari with a pear purée.

Wow, we have finally made it through the 12 Cocktails of Christmas. Kudos to anyone who has tried them all! If you have, or if you’ve tried any of these low calorie cocktail recipes you must let me know how they went in the comments below or via twitter @Shape_Magazine. By now I’m sure you’ve realized that I started waaaay more than twelve days ago testing all these drink recipes. It’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it! I thought I would round out the 12 cocktails of Christmas with the super cute skinny Santa for it’s simplicity and it’s perfect 100-calorie count.  If you’re pooped out from all the shaking and the muddling of the last twelve days simply pour yourself a skinny Santa and relax, you've earned it.

Happy holidays Fit Foodies!! Truth be told I’m grabbing myself a glass of Prosecco—cheers!
