Cheesecake Factory rolls out "Skinny Cocktails"
Last year, The Cheesecake Factory was among a few dining chains to offer smaller servings. Now the restaurant plans to roll out a "skinny" line of its five most popular cocktails later this month. The drinks will have about half the calories as the traditional versions. For example, margaritas and mojitos that are usually 300 calories will be cut to about 150. Oh, and about that cheesecake - sharing is always good.
