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!

    A friend brought over a bottle when we had dinner together. Great, fresh, light fruity wine without any of the sickly sweet taste.

    OMG! First off, I am obsessed with your blog. Second, this is my favorite summer drink! It's always my go-to. I actually covered it in my blog post today on Summer Sangria recipes. Great minds :)http://apartment402.tumblr.com/

    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!". πŸ™‚ 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!". πŸ™‚ Hehe. I'm sure he just thought it was "too peachy" because he's a guy. πŸ˜‰
