Alizé Apple Mint Lemonade Refresher

This post was sponsored on behalf of Alizé via One2One Network. All opinions stated are my own. The past few summers I’ve been sharing some delicious girls night out cocktail recipes with you all and I couldn’t let the summer go by without giving you another one. This time we’re pouring up Alizé Apple an intensely unique and inviting, yet succulent infusion of ripe, delicious apples delicately blended with premium French Vodka. I’ve been really into refresher type drinks lately, especially the Pink Drink from Starbucks or the Watermelon Lemonade from Chick-fil-A.

Shrimp and Zucchini Vegetti

Since the beginning of the year, I’ve been undergoing some lifestyle changes. I purged my closet and now use a capsule wardrobe and I even decided to do something about my weight by going on Weight Watchers. So far I’ve lost 25lbs and I feel and might I say look amazing.

I do this by switching out Carbs with delicious locally sourced vegetables to…
