Low-Calorie Cocktail Recipes

We don't know about you, but any award-show-watching sesh always includes a few cocktails — and that's just the red-carpet preview. While we don't envy the extreme measures some of the stars resort to in an effort to fit into their frocks, who doesn't appreciate a rockin' bod?
So, to ensure that you don't do extreme damage to yours over the course of several hours (you know how long these shows can be), we've got a recipe for a skinny sipper from Le Colonial restaurant that's almost guilt-free. The only calories you're logging are for the jigger of gin (97 calories). Otherwise, you can thank the oh-so healthy green tea for keeping your middle whittled and your hangover at bay — hopefully.
