When the sun starts shining, the pools open and we spend more time outside I like to have a few ‘adult beverages’ on hand for a little something outside my usual white wine or craft beer.
When you can easily drink away 200-300 calories in just ONE cocktail then you have to get creative and look for other ways to enjoy a drink without wrecking your diet that day. I would hate to work out just to mess it all up by drinking a few at the end of a long day. Furthermore, I do not want a bunch of ingredients clogging up my liquor cabinet. Yes I have one. Don’t you?
When I was asked to review the NEW Bacardi Light Strawberry Daiquiri I knew it would be a great component to my summer outdoor beverage time. You know, about 9:00 when the kids go to bed ????
I add a splash or two of club soda or ginger ale and serve it over ice. Maybe throw in a lime wedge or diced strawberries if I am feeling real fancy! A few seconds and I am done.
What I also found is that the Bacardi Light Strawberry Daiquiri also makes one heck of a marinade for chicken and pork. I placed 4 trimmed chicken breasts in a Ziplock bag with 2 TB of olive oil and 2 C of Bacardi Light Strawberry Daiquiri. I allowed it to marinade for 2 hours then roasted in the oven. I would have grilled them but I was out of propane. I diced it up and made a light salad and the next day had the leftovers on a bed of quinoa, greens and feta.
So think outside the bottle. If you want to be sure you don’t drink it all then use it in the kitchen. It gave a nice, sweet strawberry/rum flavor to the chicken and it baked up perfectly.
