3 Summer Sippers That Won’t Make You Fat: Try One Tonight!

Planning a party tonight? Instead of serving up your usual high-cal summer cocktails (hello, frozen margaritas!), do yourself and your guests a favor by mixing up one of these cool ideas. Bonus: each cocktail here is made with vodka, a light alcohol that’s less likely than dark liquors to cause Sunday-busting hangovers. Cheers!
