Dinner parties are the perfect occasion to try out new cocktail recipes. The classic limeade includes sugar, but for this version I had #SkinnyMG in mind. My new favorite ingredients to use in cocktails are fresh herbs. They add an incredible depth of flavor and freshness (without adding calories!). Check out MG’s Light Thyme Limeade recipe…
- 1 ounce of vodka or light rum
- juice from half a lime
- 2 springs of fresh thyme
- 1 ounce of diet ginger ale
Combine vodka, lime juice & thyme leaves (taken off stem) with ice and shake. Pour in a pretty glass, top off with diet ginger ale & garnish with fresh thyme. The diet ginger ale will give the cocktail it’s sweetness (instead of sugar). Simple & delish!
MG Tip: For pre-dinner party prep, mulitply the ingredients above x the # of guests, shake and pour into a pitcher. Add the diet ginger ale to each glass right before serving.
