Although I am hands down primarily a lover of ALL wines - blame my Aunties - it's in my genetics, I actually found myself a new poison (read alcoholic indulgence) early last year that still is a favourite even as we are entering the cooler months.
Vodka, Lime & Soda.
This simple (& VERY popular) drink revolutionised my drinking. It is delicious, light & better yet a bottle of vodka is surprisingly cheap so I manage to keep the supply high! If you're weight / health conscious I dare say it is lighter on calories than your normal large glass of Wine (keeping in mind as well Red wine is healthier than White wine).
So next time you're wanting to have a few refreshing beverages without the bloat - you know what to do!
