The Appletini I Created with Crystal Light Mocktails

At the end of a busy day, I love to enjoy a nice cold cocktail as I wind down.  But sadly, these days I’m counting calories in an effort to look a teeny bit better in my swimsuit.  What’s a girl to do?

Well, thankfully, Crystal Light recently came out with a new line they like to call Mocktails.  The three perfect-for-summer flavors include Margarita, Mojito and Appletini and each flavor contains only 5 calories and 0 carbs per serving.  They’ll only be on shelves for a limited amount of time so get yours before they’re gone.

crystallightEach container has 5 packets which each make a 2-quart pitcher of your desired flavor.  All you do is dump, add water, and stir.  Viola!

You know me, I have had to turn my Mocktail into a true alcoholic beverage by adding vodka.  The taste was pretty close to the real thing, but without all of the sweet guilt.  (Gluten-free, too)

You don’t have to add alcohol to your Mocktail.  You can just enjoy this as a nice refreshing beverage. If you’re into that.

What beverage do you love to serve your guests in the summer?

    SAMs club has a pack with all 3- Appletini, Margarita, and Mojito for $9-10. The Mojito is soooooo good.

        How much vodka do you use for a pitcher of them? Since it requires 2 quarts (8 cups), how much water, how much vodka? Thanks.

          You make the pitcher for the crystal light then add 1-2 oz vodka. A recipe online said 1/8 packet mixed with oz water if you just wanted to make one, then shake with 1.5 oz cold vodka.
