Tasteful yellow polka dot bikinitini heats up summer cocktail parties

In Cheers to you on August 7, 2010 at 7:54 pm

The summer seems endless in this unforgiving Texas heat yet Austin is still ablaze with simmering summer cocktail parties that spring up nightly in people’s backyards, balconies and apartment living rooms.  As every savvy host knows,  haute cocktails parties MUST have a good cocktail or two..or three… and sometimes four – but who’s counting?

Flemings restaurant has created what can be likened to a summery sequel to last year’s perfect Cosmo: The Bikinitini. The part that will get gussied up carb conscious guests sipping  and mingling more freely? This refreshingly citrusy concoction weighs in at  just under 100 calories a glass.  An excellent way to cut the cocktail party calories without cutting out the fun.

Bikinitini Recipe
1.25 oz Svedka Clementine Vodka
.25 oz Lemon Juice
.75 oz Orange Juice
1 packet of Splenda
1 oz of Soda

Shake all ingredients on ice (shake vigorously  to dissolve all Splenda.)
Garnish: Three mini, white marshmallows on skewer. Allow for spaced between each marshmallow.

Note: Freeze the marshmallows so they are easier to skewer.
