When I was at Go Blog Social Chicago, I was fortunate enough to hook up with the reps from Slim Lizzy's, a low-cal cocktail option that's damn tasty, too. The product's hook is pretty simple - they produce pre-mixed canned or bottled cocktails that are low in calories, malt free, gluten-free and guilt-free, and are a great base for mixing. I like these cocktails because they're wine based and sugar free, which is nice, plus the company is based just down the street in Westmont. Yay for supporting a local company!
They had a table in the back and served up samples, and also sent me home with two bottles to try. While the product was free, my opinions can't be bought.
They served up a cucumber cranberry gimlet at the shin dig that was so tasty I made it again at home. Admittedly, I'm not a huge fan of gin. I always thought of it as something Santa might drink because of all that pinesol flavor. I've always been one to order vodka gimlets, but the herbal notes of the gin really play off the cucumber and cranberry, so I was game. And look how classy these turn out, too:
As I wrote about in my 30 lessons in 30 years post, you need a drink. A cocktail you order everywhere. Time to start experimenting and deciding if this will be your one and only. If you want to be a classy chick with a signature drink, Slim Lizzy's is ready to hook it up. They want to give one of my lucky readers a prize pack that includes two cans of each flavors, a glass, cuzzi, coasters and a key chain. Plus, you can check out all sorts of Slim Lizzy's recipes online and get down to the very serious business of creating your own signature cocktail.
