While I don't drink alcohol, many of my readers have asked for some lower point cocktail recipes. Since my good friend Derrick from This Worthey Life is always sharing great ones, I asked him to whip up this Strawberry Gin Cocktail Recipe for you guys to test out. He has used some great combinations of flavors to really add a punch to a cocktail that would normally be much higher in points.

As I mentioned, I'm not an alcohol drinker, so I have to trust my friends to tell me this is a tasty treat. Yes, at 5 SmartPoints per serving, it can add up fast. That said, it is much lower in points than the alternatives that tend to have 12-15 points per serving. If you aren't a wine drinker but prefer cocktails with hard liquor, this will do the trick. Plus, it's super fast and easy to make at home!
Note: As always, remember to drink responsibly and never drink and drive!
