Vitamin V

If you've been reading this blog of mine for any amount of time now, chances are you are very well aware of my passion for healthy living. Working out is my ULTIMATE form of stress relief, the produce section in the grocery store makes my heart go pittah-pattah, the highlight of my week is finding a new protein bar that is free of crap, and taking vitamins, well, it just goes without saying that I firmly believe vitamins should be a part of your everyday regimen, no matter how your diet is.
That being said...yes, I believe you ARE what you eat but I also believe you should still be able to lead a healthy life AND have a social life without totally wrecking everything.
Enter Vitamin V.
AKA: Vodka
Also, if you've been reading this blog of mine for any amount of time, you are well aware of the fact that vodka is my go-to form of liquid courage because it's so low cal, low carb and not as sugary as the other liquors. Don't get me wrong-I'd LOVE me a beer every so often but the bloated gut that comes with it...no thank you.
While I LOVE me a stiff vodka sody, sometimes they get a little, well...boring, if you will, so for all the Vitamin V fans out there, like myself, prepare for your mind to be blown.
Welcome Smirnoff Sorbet Light to the line of liquid courage!

The flavors: Raspberry Pomegranate - Mango Passionfruit (THE best) - Lemon

Read it and weap...or jump for joy, like I did...because these babies are only 78 calories per shot. Which means only 156 calories for, ahem, a double. Not that I did the math or anything...
What better way to break out new vodka bottles than to invite a couple girlfriends over for dinner, drinks and the bachelorette?! 
Chelsea & Casey remain unpictured due to the fact that they were overachievers and actually worked out before all the shenans and politely asked "No pictures please!" but Oakie was ALL about it...per usual...
...and even assisted me in popping a few bottles. Literally.

Being the "retired" bartender I am, I was ALL about mixing up new concoctions!

Our first contender: Light Sparkling Pomegranate Berry
Prosecco + Raspberry Pomegranate Smirnoff Sorbet + a squeeze of fresh lemon juice

SO good! Well-anything with prosecco is amazing in my book but add a little fruity vodka to the mix and a touch of lemon juice and heavens to Betsy...y'all...SO light and SO refreshing! This would be the perfect mix for a bachelorette party brunch. Talk about getting the party started early! ;)

Next up: Light Tropical Sparkling Screwdriver - oh my word y'all...this was my absolute FAVORITE! Never been a screwdriver fan but the Mango Passionfruit Smirnoff Sorbet is like fruit a smoothie, but in vodka form. Just take my word for it, mmmkay?

And finally, the Light Lemonade
Lemon Smirnoff Sorbet + Soda + Lemon Juice + Stevia...mouth = watering!
The PERFECT summer drink!

While some of you are mommy bloggers, and other are fashion bloggers, I'm really trying to find my place in this blogging world of ours so I've decided that when you have 3 bottles of vodka delivered to your doorstep, either you've hit an all time low and should consider the 12-step program or you can start calling yourself the "Boozy Blogger". I'll take the "glass half full" approach here and officially deem myself as THE Boozy Blogger. There. I said it.
