2) I am concerned with the hype about the drink mix being low calorie. You see - it is a mix - a cocktail in a bottle. The label serving size is 1.5 ounces. That amount of drink (basically a shot glass full) contains just under 40 calories. Okay - YES - 40 is much less than the 100 calories in 1.5 ounces of liquor - however, it is not pure liquor. A 4 ounce serving of the cocktail would have a 100 calories. I noticed my friends' glasses had 6- 8 ounces each. They may have had 12 to 16 (ounces) total. A 4 ounce glass of wine also has 100 calories. A 12 ounce light beer has 100 calories. A shot of whisky/liquor adds 100 calories to a calorie free 12 ounce soda - now THAT is a skinny drink.
But I did bring along a snack tray - happy to have a chance to use my beautiful tulip platter. A gift from my sister.
