My New Summer (under 100 calories) Cocktail

Always the optimist, I decided that the slow start to the summer this year would give me plenty of time to search the aisles of my favourite grocery stores to come up with some new snacks and beverages.  I am happy to report that I think I have hit this one out of the park.  I don’t have a name for it yet but have enjoyed quite a few.  As I write this I am anchored in Bedwell Bay (the one in Indian Arm not the one with the great spa) and I have decided I should write down the ingredients pronto.

 A special shout out to the gang at Superstore, especially the buyer who is coming up with these new juices without all that sugar – I think we should talk?!

 1 part White Wine, I used our new favourite CBG (cheap but good), the Italian Montalto 2006 Pinot Grigio

 1 part Ocean Spray Diet Low Calorie Beverage made with Splenda, I used Ruby Pomegranate

 1 part President’s Choice Blue Menu Sparking Fruit Juice Beverage, I used the Pomegranate Cranberry with apple, white grape, lemon, orange and aronia berry juice.

 Fill a large wine glass with ice, add the juice and wine and a chunk of lemon.  Enjoy!!
