What What? A 125 calorie Watermelon Mintarita?

Oh how I love Independence Day. We get grilled foods, sweets, and red, white, and blue themed cakes. There is the off-chance you’ll lose a limb. Someone may get too tipsy and fall into a giant bowl of potato salad. You know, THE FREAKING FOURTH!

I still don’t want my arse to spread, or lose speed due to slovenliness, because I drank a bit too much.  This is why I am constantly coming up with new, lower cal cocktails. This next one is a REAL HUMDINGER.
