Liberty Hotel Adds Healthy Drinks To Our Summer Cocktail List
We've kicked off our Summer Cocktails series where we profile fun new summer drinks that hotels are making. Got one we should know about? Send us the recipe with a photo of the drink. Otherwise, enjoy and @reply us when you're wasted!
Boston's Liberty Hotel has got our summer cocktail indulgence all sorted out: they have a range of "Sleek" cocktails which each have less than 150 calories, which means, of course, we can drink a few more of them without having to worry about how we'll look at the pool. And for this we are truly grateful.
In fact, Liberty Hotel bartenders tell us that pretty much every classic cocktail can be transformed into a more body-conscious version, and their "Sleek" versions certainly still sound like they have a great taste. From the Malibu Lift (including reduced-fat, no-sugar-added dried coconut) to the Hydrate (includes lots of watermelon) and the Dream (no nasty fat-free ingredients, but just sounds delicious), everybody should find something to indulge in without the same guilt as a regular cocktail. Each one costs $15; recipes after the jump.
