Firefly Spirits Shares Calorie-Conscious Cocktail Recipes for the New Year

With New Year's Resolutions in mind, the folks at Firefly Spirits recently shared some calorie-conscious cocktail recipes with Holy City Sinner, and I'm happy to pass them along to all of you!

Don't forget, in addition to their standard Sweet Tea Vodka, Firefly also offers Skinny Tea Vodka, which is made with Truvia and tea from the Charleston Tea Garden. The spirit has just 72 calories per ounce. In addition, Firefly’s six-time distilled Straight Vodka has just 65 calories an ounce.
