This Skinny Triple Sec has just a fraction of the calories of normal triple sec, and so yummy!
I think with a name like Wine & Glue, it’s pretty clear that I like my cocktails (and my crafts! I’m always worried people are going to think I like to sniff glue or something . . . . ). But with me counting my calories and all, something had to be done. Do you know there are like 100 calories in one ounce of triple sec??
So I decided to make my own with some Truvia Baking Blend. (FYI, this isn’t a sponsored post, I just love my Truvia . . . my coffee gets a spoonful every morning).
So, full disclosure, this isn’t technically triple sec. Because triple sec has the orange flavor with a decent amount of alcohol involved. But since it is a pretty regular ingredient in margaritas, and I do love me a margarita, I was trying to replicate the flavor while sparing some of the calories. And I’m happy to say, SUCCESS! This tastes so good, it is such a perfect sub for triple sec, and one ounce of it is about a 19 calories. NINETEEN!
Annnnnnd! If you aren’t a big drinker, you could use this to make your smoothies just a little bit sweeter!
You may have already guessed that there is a cocktail recipe that goes along with this, but you’re just going to have to wait a day for that. Trust me, it’s worth it 😉
