Single Ladies Brunch

Posted February 12, 2012 by in

Voli Vodka, a low calorie vodka brand (on average this vodka has between 25% and 40% less calories than leading brands) is  the perfect choice of spirit to entertain your single girlfriends.  Let’s stay healthy this year and NOT gain weight. Here are some Voli Vodka cocktails that will go great with your single ladies brunch.

The Flirt

  • 2 oz. Voli Raspberry Cocoa
  • 5 fresh raspberries
  • 1 lemon wedge
  • 1 lime wedge
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup
  • Prosecco (an Italian white wine)

Muddle raspberries, lemon, lime and syrup.  Add other ingredients and ice.  Shake and strain.  Top with Prosecco.  Garnish with fresh raspberries.

Blushing Berry

  • 2 oz. Voli Raspberry Cocoa
  • 1/2 oz. raspberry liquor
  • Diet cranberry juice

Build ingredients over ice and stir.  Garnish with fresh raspberries and lime twist.

How about a neat way to serve up some shots at your party?  You can mix up a delicious Voli Vodka shot and serve it in a unique chocolate shot glass for your guests.  You can purchase the Dobla Dark Belgian chocolate shot glass from Kegworks.com for $8.95 for a package of 12 or you can make them yourself if you have the time.  It’s a great way to incorporate a little chocolate to your party.  If you’re making them yourself, be sure to use dark chocolate, which is actually healthier for you!   You can find an easy recipe on eHow.com.

Shakerato Shot

  • 1 oz. Voli Espresso Vanilla
  • 1/2 oz. espresso
  • Mix ingredients together and serve in a delicious chocolate shot glass!

We want to keep this party healthy and low-fat. Here are some great suggestions.

How about some chocolate covered strawberries?  You can make them a bit healthier by using the same dark chocolate you used if you made your own chocolate covered shot glasses (if the chocolate is at least 60% cocoa it is considered to be healthy).

Since this is a brunch (and you will probably appreciate a little bread to soak up the alcohol you will be consuming!) bagels would be a great choice.  To keep it healthy, serve whole wheat bagels with some pink cream cheese.  You can also serve a vegetable platter with the pink cream cheese as well.

Fruit kabobs are also a great snack.  There are lots of red fruits you can add to your skewers such as cherries, raspberries, strawberries, and red apples.

How about some heart-shaped chips and salsa?  A very simple and healthy snack to make, simply cut some whole wheat tortillas into heart shapes, brush with some olive oil, sprinkle with a little salt and bake at 425 until crisp (about eight minutes).

And that is all you need to throw a great girls-only party!  The best part is with the Voli Vodka cocktails and healthy snacks, the girls will enjoy your guilt-free party even more!  If you would like to add one final personal touch, paper invitations would be a great idea.  Absolutelypaper.com has some fabulous ladies-only themed invites.
