While Fabio's date waits for him at an upscale bar, he gives us the skinny on how to make delicious low-calorie, scandalous drinks.Tips:
- Skip the sugary syrups and reduce calories with natural flavor. Stevia, agave and pomegranate syrups all have great sweetening qualities without excessive sugar.
- Muddling fruits and vegetables into a drink (mashing them up and straining them), imbues fresh flavors without adding calories.
- To take champagne or sparkling wine over the top, combine it with absinthe.
