As floods of people flock to gyms across Scotland in a bid to banish the festive bulge and start 2011 on a healthy mission we seldom think about treating ourselves! New Year’s diets normally consist of hunger pangs, rabbit food and detox plans that make us miserable. However Princes Square Glasgow are proud to announce the launch of the Skinny Cocktail. The team at November Restaurant has designed a cocktail menu to help calorie conscious drinkers who still want to enjoy a night out with friends and indulge in a tasty cocktail (or two!).
From a ‘Skinny Coke Float’ to a ‘Ray of Light’ or ‘Driven Snow’, cocktails can contain as little as 95 calories per drink, just a third of the number found in an average sized glass of red wine.
