What's the Skinny on the New Martini
September marks the end of summer and the beginning of the fall season, and with fall comes the many football parties where friends gather in front of the television to cheer their favorite team while snacking on things like chips, pizza, and Buffalo wings. Unfortunately, consuming all those sodium rich snacks makes one thirsty, therefore causing us to drink more. Hopefully, most of us are reaching for low-cal drinks, but the truth is the majority of us are not. And while some companies have made it convenient for us to drink light alcoholic beverages, the prepackaged flavor has left us with a desire for more choices. If you're like us and have been seeking out more beverage choices with fewer calories, you will be pleased to discover Voli Vodka!

Voli Vodka is made from natural ingredients of distilled French wheat and pure spring water, and comes in six exciting flavors; Original Lyte; Lemon; Orange Vanilla; Pear Vanilla; Raspberry Cocoa; and Espresso Vanilla. If the intriguing flavors are not enough to entice your palate, the significantly lower calories of Voli Vodka will surely lure waistline in. These fruit and fusion flavored vodkas are 25% - 40% lower in calories than the leading brands.

The Calories in a regularly mixed drink add up even more quickly than beer and wine. For example, the standard 1.5 ounce serving of 80-proof alcohol has 96 or more calories even before you add any mixers. Now add in a 6-ounce serving of orange juice, which has 84 calories, and you've just consumed 180 calories in a single standard serving. Sadly, the truth about vodka cocktails is that most like, Black Russians, Caipiroskas and Cosmopolitans all come in around the 200 calorie mark.

Therefore, considering September only marks the beginning of football and the feasting season, it would not only make sense to keep a bottle of this low calorie vodka on hand but perhaps, the best part is having a lot more choices than before. Unlike other low calorie drinks that are pre-mixed, Voli Vodka offers you the ability to enjoy their drink straight up, mixed into an array of martinis, or blended with your favorite low-cal beverage.

Voli Vodka is available from coast to coast and sold at your local liquor store. It's also available for sale online through their website. How's that for convenience? So, this season do yourself and your friends a favor and stock up on Voli vodka, not the unwanted calories.
