Happy New Year!!  Its an exciting time – time to celebrate a fresh start, a clean slate, a new beginning.  One of the sneaky ways we tend to over-indulge calorie-wise especially during the holidays is through liquid calories!  Beer, wine, and cocktails can add on calories quickly if you aren’t careful.  So in planning our New Years Eve Healthy House Party, we looked up a few skinny cocktails from the Fixate cookbook by Autumn Calabrese – creator of 21 Day Fix, 21 Day Fix Extreme, and the new Hammer and Chisel.  Here are 2 that we thought might be a great treat for New Years Eve and each is only around 100 calories per serving!
