Refine - The Zero Calorie Mixer

Posted: 07/14/2012 5:42 pm

Summer time means summer cocktails, but how can you enjoy your favorite libations and still maintain a bikini-trim figure? With Refine Mixers, that's how.

Founded by Patrick Castles, Refine Mixers are calorie free and sugar free, which means the only calories and sugars in the drinks come from the alcohol you include. They are sweetened with Stevia and come in such mixes as Mojito, Margarita and Cosmopolitan.

Castles recently held a Summer Mixology Night at his company headquarters in Venice Beach, California where he showed how to make a few fun cocktails - all of which were approximately 100 calories or less!
