Low-Calorie, Healthy Beer Cocktail

Happy Hour: The Spicy Lady

The Spicy LadyThis year, I've been all about healthy cocktails, but even I can't resist the temptation of a Super Bowl spread. On game day, I'm a huge fan of spicy drinks, and watching Katie make a Michelada made me want one, too.

Thankfully, I found a beer cocktail that's a happy medium: it's not loaded with sodium and calories, yet it has the fizz, spice, and ultimately, satisfaction that a Super Bowl libation should have.

Interested? Then be sure to keep reading for the recipe.
