Sponsored content submitted by Tahoe Blue Vodka

With springtime in bloom and summer just around the corner, many adults are now switching to lighter and more refreshing cocktail choices. Tahoe Blue Vodka is pleased to share recipes, tips, and helpful hints for at-home-mixologists-in-the-making interested in spirited springtime cocktail recipes that also tend to be lower in calories.

People often forget about the extra calories in sugar-laden cocktails made with flavored syrups, mixers, and fancy (aka: expensive) liqueurs that are often popular over the winter months. And, keep in mind that flavorful and seasonal herbs, tasty fruits and crunchy vegetables make for great garnishes that add fun and flair to any beverage…either placed on the rim or floating on top.

A few fresh and flavorful Tahoe Blue Vodka cocktail recipes to enjoy during the spring and summer months that are naturally low in calories include the following: Founder’s Favorite, Tahoe Sunkiss and the Pink Greyhound. 

Suggested recipes follow but don’t be afraid to experiment with fresh garnishes from the local farmers market or home garden as they can help make an otherwise simple cocktail simply sensational.
