Get the Skinny on Morton's New Healthy, Low-Calorie "Spa-Tinis," Summer Cocktails

​Question: How many cocktails does it take to turn one skinny chick into a big, fat mess?

Answer: One megasized margarita too many! 

If that hits a little too close to home, we have a better answer for you. Try downsizing your cocktail calories with Morton's (yes, the steak house) new health-conscious "Spa-Tinis."

Forget those fishbowl margaritas, rum buckets, and sugary martinis. Instead, raise a glass to the new, low-calorie collection of flavorful, fun cocktails designed for the "health-minded consumer." 

With about 200 calories apiece, they've got to be worth the $14 price tag. But how do they taste? Morton's reps say their Spa-Tinis focus more on using all-natural ingredients -- and less on premade mixes -- which means you won't sacrifice flavor for your figure. 

Best of all, there's a drink for everyone. Do you like vodka cranberry? Try the Antioxidant Me. Love mojitos? The Lean and Green may be just what you need. 

The five featured cocktails on the new Spa-Tini menu include:

Skynny Blood Orange Cosmo: 
made with Skyy Blood Orange Vodka, Monin Sugar Free Triple Sec, lime juice, and cranberry juice.

Skinny Rita: 
made with Patrón Silver, Monin Agave Nectar, and fresh lime juice.

Lean and Green: 
made with Ty Ku Soju, Monin Agave nectar, lime juice, and mint leaves.

Antioxidant Me: 
made with Absolut Acai Vodka, Monin Super Fruit Purée, pomegranate juice, and fresh lime.

Red Velvet: 
made with Lindemans Framboise Lambic, Lunetta Prosecco, and Chambord.

Each $14 cocktail contains 200 or fewer calories, and recipes are available upon request. All you need to do now is find a Morton's steakhouse near you.
