Guide to Skinny Sippin’ (50 Low Cal Cocktails!)

Thursday night is date night for the Gerbers, and it’s my favorite night of the week. It’s our chance to explore new restaurants, sit outside and enjoy a cocktail without kids fighting and throwing food. (Seriously, at what age does that stop?!) But in the battle of the baby weight, it stinks to throw out my hard work for the week over a basket of chips and salsa and a couple of margaritas. So I tracked down Bethanny’s original skinny margarita (160 calories vs 550 for a regular one). Turns out skinny cocktails rock! Here you go ladies, 50 awesome cocktails for a summer of skinny sippin’

(I am the queen of corny titles. Apologies.)
