Five Low-Cal Cocktails for the summer.

It's the month of July and most people have got holiday trips planned out.I for one,would love to be on some exotic beach sipping on some cocktail,under a beach umbrella and letting out some steam but unfortuantely,at this time of my life it is only a wish.

Anyhoo,a lot of people get carried away on vacations,drinking and eating too much,basically over doing things and why shouldn't they?it's their holiday but for some odd reason people seem to think you can only add weight when you eat too much.Sorry to burst your bubbles folks but those cocktails help in adding a few calories too.

Grape Sparkler
Strained,pureed red grapes are the base for this sweet and tangy grape cocktail.
Want to be careful with your weight this holiday season? Then try some of these low-cal Cocktails.
 Cucumber Lemonade Chiller
Pick up rosemary,cucumbers and lemons to concoct this grown-up lemonade that  will keep you cool on a hot day.

Watermelon Gin Fizz
This pretty cocktail would be perfect for a luncheon.

Campari,Grape Fruit & Pomegranale Cocktail
This dusty pink drink looks festive in a  stemmed wineglass with a twist of orange zest.

Cherry Smash
Celebrate fresh cherries with this mint-infused cherry coctail.
