Crazy Cocktail: Cocktail Under 150 Calories!!!!!!

Hello there!

Like every woman in the world, my New Year's Resolution for 2012 is to get back into my shape and regain my abs of steel! I've cut back on fatty foods. I drink tons of water and I'm working out like a solider! However, there's one thing standing in my path to a six pack and that is...........ALCOHOL.

Ever since my college days, my love for vodka has blossomed into something grand. However, the amount of calories that are packed into a cocktail are equivalent to a Snickers bar and can hurt your wasteline tremendously.

However, after much research, I've find found a cocktail that not only is delicious but IT'S UNDER 150 CALORIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *e-flips*

This modified take on a mojito taste amazing and you won't have to worry about popping out of your freakum dress. :-)

Try it out and let me know what you think!
