I love coming across articles that rationalize consumption of liquid calories.  When you're trying to watch your weight, it's hard to make it through the summer without reaching for a cold one.

Thanks to Lara at Boutique Fitness in NB, they have a recommendation list for you with a recipe too.  Top three to have on the rocks? Vodka, Tequila and Champagne.  There's also a lovely recipe for a "Margo-rita" that won't kill your figure.

And don't forget, you can pick up your ingredients and find out more about nutriotional content (or lack there of) from the experts at Douglas Wine & Spirits.
