This holiday season has been doing its damnedest to destroy your waistline. Luckily for you, we know a place serving some skinny cocktails, so you can drink away your holiday stress without adding to the carnage.
RA Sushi in South Miami has a sexy lineup of slimmed-down under-200-calorie drinks made with Voli vodka, including the Lychee-Teenie, Skinny Ninja, and Thin Ginger.
With this arsenal of low-cal drinks, you'll be ready to count down to the new year in style.
The folks at RA say a favorite is the Thin Ginger, and they describe it as "berry tasty." Even better, they shared the recipe with Short Order, so if you have a low-cal drinking emergency this week, you can whip one up yourself.
