Earlier that day, I spent time researching and practicing for an internet story regarding alcohol and the calories consumed. As I wandered down the beverage inner isle I grabbed a couple new items to get my fridge and pantry ready for some petite cocktails.I’ve been cutting the alcohol waaayyyyy back some new “mixers” I had eyed on the shelf had me intrigued.

LaCroix Sparkling Water

Mr. Q Cumber Soda 

I decided to experiment with the Mr. Q Cumber Soda. After a little math in My Fitness Pal, it turns out my mixing paid off for a lower calorie option for toasting. 110 calories to be exact! Holla!!!!

The new sipper paired well with the salsa I had purchased and Ak-Mak crackers from my pantry. It was the perfect light weight, take the edge of, toastable treat.
