St. Patrick’s Day is coming up. You know, Erin Go Braugh and all that? What better time to come back with Thirsty Thursdays?!? OH YEAH, I’m back baby!
To me, St. Patty’s Day is just an excuse to wear green, eat corned beef and cabbage, and drink green beer. Now that I’m taking better care of myself, I don’t want to give up the food, the color green, or the alcohol, but I do want to give up the calories.
I went searching for a yummy low-cal St. Patty’s Day treat and I came across Shape magazine’s website. That’s where I found this:

Skip the green-colored beer this year and try crafting this low-cal martini created by The Cocktail Guru Jonathan Pogash. Fresh lemon juice and peach-flavored vodka lends the drink a fresh, fruity boost.
1 1/2 oz. Van Gogh Cool Peach Vodka
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. agave nectar
8-10 mint leaves
Add ingredients to a mixing glass with ice and shake very well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with mint sprig.
After a couple of these babies, you’ll be screaming “Kiss me, I’m Irish!”
