Skinny Peach Champagne Cocktail



One of my most favorite things about a beautiful summer evening is kicking back and sipping on fancy homemade cocktails on my back porch with my husband. As the nights have become a bit warmer, I’ve moved from red wines to champagne cocktails. Light, refreshing and incredibly crisp, I have a fabulous champagne cocktail that is about to rock your skinny world…at 36 calories per glass!

Trader Joe's Amour de Paris Peach Sparkling Wine - it is seriously the 8th wonder of the world. Do yourself a favor and buy it by the case because it sells out often. Not only is this cocktail inexpensive {$4.99/bottle}, it is sure to be a huge hit at your next party.
Here is a picture of the label to prove this delicious champagne is ONLY 36 calories per serving {or more importantly, 180 calories for the entire bottle}!


Since this sparkling wine is already amazing on its own, I only added half of a diced peach and a sprig of mint for color and taste!



Tip: You can also freeze half of the fruit and add it right before serving to keep your drink chilled.





Now go find a lovely spot outside to relax and sip your gorgeous cocktail!

  20. We don't have a Trader Joe's in the city I live in, but a city nearby does. So when we were there recently, I made sure to stop by!

    First of all, I have to say that Trader Joe's had some of the friendliest staff I've ever encountered. I had three workers in the wine section ask if they could be of some assistance. I told them I would know exactly what I was looking for when I pulled up my favorite blog!

    The GUY (there's a reason I emphasize this) had been previously talking about the peach champagne (just as I had found it)and was talking with his co-worker saying it was REALLY peachy and a bit much for him. I think he was a little embarrassed when I said, "that's what I'm looking for!". :) He handed it to me and I explained that it was on a blog I follow and that while perhaps peachy for his taste, it was really low in calories. He looked at the bottle and said, "Wow. 36 calories? You're right, that's a big deal!". :) Hehe. I'm sure he just thought it was "too peachy" because he's a guy. ;-)
