So this was a pretty rough first day back to work and subsequently a bit of a rough evening... especially spending it alone.

Despite my Fazoli's cave-in (extra breadsticks and turtle cheesecake ordered) I remembered a most delicious low-calorie cocktail from Hungry-Girl's weekend episode on Food Network.

Big props to her - recipe and linkage in just a moment....

First let me tell you about my local Wal-Mart's after New Years Eve sale... sparkling wine for less than $6 in a bottle that has a resealable pressure cork.  This is reason enough to try a new recipe!

Ok so sipping one (or three) as I post... here you go!!!!*

PER SERVING (1/8th of recipe, 1 flute): 75 calories, 0g fat, 2mg sodium, 4.5g carbs, 0.5g fiber, 3g sugars, <0.5g protein -- PointsPlus® value 3* 
Prep: 5 minutes
Half a 15-oz. can (about 1 cup) sliced peaches in juice, drained
16 fresh raspberries
1 (750-ml.) bottle sparkling white wine, chilled
Puree peaches in a small food processor or blender. Evenly distribute the puree among 8 champagne flutes, about 1 tablespoon each. Place two raspberries in each flute and top with the wine. Enjoy!

PS - Maraschino cherries work just as well as raspberries.

Sip, sip, and away! :)
