This citrusy swap will totally hit the spot!

4 oz. light ruby red grapefruit juice drink (like the kind by Ocean Spray)
4 oz. diet lemon-lime soda (Sprite Zero is the best!)
1 1/2 oz. tequila

Combine all ingredients in a tall glass and stir. Fill the glass with ice, add a straw, and enjoy!

Coconut Cream Pie Cocktail

Sometimes a sippable dessert with a kick is just what you need. For those times, reach for THIS...

1 low-fat honey graham cracker (1/4 sheet), finely crushed
1 1/2 oz. unsweetened coconut milk beverage (like the kind by So Delicious)
1 1/2 oz. coconut rum
1 tbsp. Cool Whip Free (thawed)
1 drop coconut extract
2 tbsp. Fat Free Reddi-wip
1/2 tsp. shredded sweetened coconut

Spread out graham cracker crumbs on a small plate. Wet the rim of a martini glass, and press it into the crumbs to coat.

Combine all remaining ingredients except Reddi-wip and shredded coconut in a shaker. Add 2 oz. cold water, and stir until smooth. Fill the shaker with ice. Shake and then strain into the glass. Top with Reddi-wip, sprinkle with coconut and, if you like, top with any remaining graham cracker crumbs. Mmmmm!

It's fruity, it's flavorful, and it's SOOOOOO pretty... YAY!!!

One 2-serving packet sugar-free pink lemonade drink mix (like the kind by Crystal Light)
3 oz. passion fruit rum (like the kind by Malibu)
1 oz. pomegranate juice

Fill two tall glasses halfway with ice.

Combine drink mix with 8 oz. cold water in a shaker. Stir to dissolve. Add remaining ingredients. Shake and strain into the 2 glasses. Sip your pink beverage with a pal!
