Hooray, the holiday season is finally here, it’s time to celebrate and enjoy a drink or two! With so many parties coming up, it can be tough to watch your calorie intake and too easy to overindulge in super sugary holiday themed cocktails. Thankfully, I’m here to tell you to throw calorie caution to the wind because you can enjoy low-cal and ridiculously delicious cocktails at your next event. Here are three holiday drink recipes.

Cran-Merry Margaritas
