"Skinny Cocktail" Recipes -- Drinks at RA Sushi Through January

Yes, cocktails contain calories and if you're downing a few of them, it adds up. Over the holidays, folks tend to imbibe more than usual and then, before they know it, they're sitting on the tarmac with Kevin Smith, slimming down enough to fit in a seat.


RA Sushi -- with locations in Pembroke Pines and Palm Beach Gardens -- is spending January selling "skinny" cocktails. The re-mixed concoctions are all under 200 calories, which spells less guilt when you're having four of 'em.

See the recipes for the Thin Mint Mojito, Cosmo-teeny, and Cucumber Slenderita, after the jump. They cost $7 each and they're only available until the end of the month, after which they're back to their normal sugary ways. 

Oh, and it's happy hour from 3-7 p.m., Monday-Saturday.
