Skinny Jeans, like calories, are much easier to put on than take off.
Dieting is never easy, and if you want to cut calories but still enjoy a cocktail or two it is just about impossible. At least until now.
The Skinny Jeans Cocktails book is a delightfully delicious collection of low calorie mixed drinks and marvelous illustrations. Elizabeth Dodwell shows you how to take old favorites like Sex on the Beach and Strawberry Daiquiri and create beautiful, guilt-free drinks in a flash - and all under 150 calories.
And here, in her long-awaited first book, Elizabeth introduces delectable new creations like the Red Stiletto, Devil in a Blue Dress and the 102-calorie Skinny Apple Pie Mojito to help you put on a fabulous affair for friends or just unwind quietly by yourself.
Laced with Elizabeth's signature blend of humor, Skinny Jeans Cocktails offers 50 minimum-fuss, maximum-flavor recipes that include important nutritional information - calories, carbs, sugar. And the book focuses on a fresh, more organic approach to drink mixing while not ignoring real-life considerations such as availability of products. In fact, there is a bonus chart that gives nutritional comparisons. So if, for instance, you prefer not to use honey, you can check the nutritional values of agave nectar, maple syrup and stevia and adjust the recipe accordingly.
What's more, there are two additional recipes for 0-calorie simple syrup alternatives that you can easily make at home. One is made with natural stevia, the other with a sucralose sweetener.
And for those times that you want to enjoy a night on the town, Elizabeth guides you how to choose low calorie libations without having to settle for a wimpy, tasteless tipple.
So whatever you're in the mood for, you can find it here and keep it low-cal.

About the Author
Elizabeth's first introduction to that uniquely American creation, the cocktail, was in a bar in Athens (Greece). She was just 17 years old and tasted a Whiskey Sour. It was love at first sip.
As the years passed, Elizabeth says "my tastes broadened, along with my hips, my thighs, my jowls.... and I began to experiment with my own libations, including low calorie creations, infusions, and syrups; searching for inspiration in everything from foods, color, aroma, emotion, music - heck, even the kitchen sink! I wanted to blend flavors; to build bold new drinks and go where no man (or woman) has gone before."
The Skinny Jeans Cocktails book is Elizabeth's long-awaited first book-writing venture but only one of a number of fun, informative and very different cocktail and booze-related ideas that she has planned for the near future, all of which embrace the concept that anyone can create a great cocktail and that imbibing is as much about enjoyment of the blend of flavors as the camaraderie of sharing your creation with others.
