Grown-Up Smoothie

Grown-Up Smoothie is a type of low-alcohol drink that is made from an alcoholic base with a fruit flavor. The first mention of the Grown-Up Smoothie was found in 2004 when it was mentioned by New York Times columnist Marian Burros. The article was about how to make cocktails for women who don't drink alcohol because they are pregnant or breast feeding. Burros said that these cocktails should be called "grown up" because they are designed for not only women but also men who want beverages other than beer or wine. Smoothies are the perfect way to get a healthy dose of vitamins and nutrients into your diet. They're also a great way to sneak in some extra calories and carbs if you're trying to put on weight (think: bananas, nuts, oats).
