Mind Over Platter: Cocktail Edition

Sure, actual meals might be a more useful edition to some people, but I love cocktails and these are tried and true favorites of mine. Most are pretty simple and significantly less calories then their inspiration. That said, they still have calories and you shouldn't drink them like they're going out of style. My pictures aren't as pretty because we're cutting back on garnishes and liquor filled with colorful ingredients that are full of sugar. Read on and give some of my favorite drinks a try. At the end I'll link to the bar ware I used.

2 oz vodka

1 TBS frozen OJ concentrate

½ can of orange seltzer

Stir ingredients over ice.

2 oz gin

Splash of simple syrup

½ can of lime seltzer

½ oz fresh squeezed lime juice
