Calorie-conscious Cocktails

By Erin Hansen

Who doesn’t like to get in the mood on Valentine’s Day with a few cocktails? Problem is, some of those sexy drinks come with a hefty number of calories…which definitely aren’t so sexy! So, in honor of our Fitness issue, we’re highlighting cocktails made with Voli Light Vodka. Why? Because Voli Light Vodka is the world’s first low calorie fruit and fusion flavored vodka. Voli Light Vodkas are on average 25 to 40 percent lower in calories (yay!) than leading brands. The natural ingredients achieve the perfect balance of natural fruit flavors and vodka distilled from superior French wheat and pure spring water. Voli’s fusion flavors are multiple fruit flavors masterfully blended together in perfect proportion to create tastes and aromas unlike any other. And the cocktails below each have only around 100 calories!
