Wine Wednesday: Voli Light Vodkas are the new skinny vodka

Fall is here and all I can say is “where did the end of summer go?”  I think after Fashion Week the time seems to just fly by. Speaking of, my new find Voli Light Vodkas which is the world’s first line of low-calorie flavored vodka, made its Fashion Week début this season.

Voli’s natural ingredients are uniquely blended to create refreshing and light flavors that include Lyte (original), Raspberry Cocoa, Espresso Vanilla, Orange Vanilla, and Lemon.  So you fashionistas will delight in learning that Voli Light vodkas have 25 to 40 percent fewer calories than other leading vodka brands.  I KNOW!!  Each cocktail featured during Fashion Week included no more than 81 calories and Voli’s strong flavor profile eliminates the need for sugary high calorie mixers. In a world where things add up, it’s nice to subtract.  Now you know I’m not one to say ‘diet’, but if you are counting those calories, Voli may be a great option.  Honestly, they are yummy.

So grab your favorite fashion-friend and cheers….responsibly please.
