Recipes: Low-Calorie Cocktails

 

Have you been to a store lately? The shelves are lined with Halloween costumes, decorations of pumpkins and fall leaves and candy–lots and lots of candy. While I can’t get enough of the orange tones and images of kiddos in their ballerina and superhero outfits, I also can’t get enough of the tasty fun-size chocolate treats, caramel apples and candy corn. While I’d be hard-pressed to find a low-calorie caramel apple, Sparkling ICE, a lightly-carbonated refreshment which combines fresh mountain spring water, natural fruit juices and six essential vitamins and antioxidants, has created a slew of tempting and low-fat cocktail recipes. (The drink even makes a great health-conscious alternative to sodas.)
