Berry Vodka Spritzer

December 31, 2014

Hi, friends!

I hope you had a wonderful holiday!! Mine was just fabulous…filled with lots of cuddle time (husband and cats) and binge watching Scandal on Netflix. Glorious, I tell ya!

I also got to try my hand out in the kitchen whipping up a holiday drink! This is perfect for a New Year’s Eve Party, or any occasion really. The great thing is that this drink is a low cal option too!
