One of the recent fads in alcohol is the low calorie cocktail. I have only tried one brand of a Margarita before and I thought it was an interesting concept since alcohol does provide empty calories. Don’t get me wrong I do not count calories when drinking a margarita but it sure is nice to know I can have some tortilla chips with them for the savings of calories. They are only about 40 calories a glass.
LuluB. Wines sent me two bottles of their lo calorie cocktails, the margarita and the chocolate martini. I had my husband test drive these with me so the results are a little skewed since men rarely think about lo cal cocktails.
We first tried the Margarita. It was good but I think I served it too warm so the added ice cubes diluted the flavor slightly. We also tried making them frozen which was not a good call. I would make sure they are very cold, maybe store them in the freezer before serving to keep the flavor. They smelled wonderful but our serving technique caused them to taste diluted.
Next wear the Chocolate martini. Once you open the bottle the chocolate aroma is dominant. We used a cocktail shaker for these as well. I am not a big martini fan but these were flavorful. Could not drink as much as the margaritas, which we finished off the whole bottle.
I think these would be wonderful for a ladies night get together. They also come in Mojito and Cran Cosmo flavors. They retail for about $13.99 a bottle and check their website for retail locations.
I am definitely interested in trying the other flavors. Just remember they may not taste heavy on the alcohol sol drink responsibly !!
I was given these samples for review, but the opinions are all my own. I was not given any further compensation.
