To me, St. Patty's Day is just an excuse to wear green, eat corned beef and cabbage, and drink green beer. Now that I'm taking better care of myself, I don't want to give up the food, the color green, or the alcohol, but I do want to give up the calories.
I went searching for a yummy low-cal St. Patty's Day treat and I came across Shape magazine's website. That's where I found this:
Minty Peach Martini
130 calories, 10 grams sugar

1 1/2 oz. Van Gogh Cool Peach Vodka
1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 tsp. agave nectar
8-10 mint leaves
Add ingredients to a mixing glass with ice and shake very well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with mint sprig.
After a couple of these babies, you'll be screaming "Kiss me, I'm Irish!"
