What are my favorite words when it comes to cooking, entertaining, drink prep? LIFE? Give me EASY. I want EASY. Why? Because I don’t have time for complicated things. Don’t get me wrong. I will spend time on things that are worth it and put in my energy where it’s necessary and makes a difference. But fall to me is busy. Let me correct that. “Abundantly scheduled”.
Sometimes a simple twist on a “usual” can be a wowzer of a difference. Such is the case with this cocktail. How many of you or your Misters drink Crown and Coke? Lots I’m sure. Let’s substitute the Coke for Ginger Ale. A more fall feel, ginger anything adds to the season. So I made this simple change, and for me personally, I made it diet… always better if I could save a calorie or two. HA!
So voila. Meet the Crowned Ginger!
- 1 oz. Crown Royal
- 3 oz. ginger ale
- 1 wedge lime
Add Crown Royal and ginger ale to an ice-filled highball glass. Garnish with a lime wedge.
In between sports, festivals, more sports, new product launches for THIS GIRL (psssst! YES!!! Happening VERY SOON!!!!!), I need EASY and I need YUMMY and I need light. With only 96 calories, I’ll take this.
Comment below and share a #WIN with me. I’d love to toast to you!
Cheers to the weekend!
