Now that fall is rolling in and it’s football season, I need to share my favorite alcoholic beverage. Most of you don’t know this, but in my past life I was also a bartender. Not a fancy one at an upscale restaurant but a college student drink slinger at one of the many slightly/very dingy bars in Athens GA. My shoes may have been covered in bar tar, the drinks may have been too sugary and multi-colored, but I loved bartending. Now that I’m a little older, I enjoy mixing drinks at home and finding lower calorie drinks to share with you lovely readers.
