BBQ tonight

I have two bbqs to go to this week. One is tonight and the other is Sunday. I have a very big habit of losing myself at them. I love bbqing and I love sitting back, relaxing and chowing down. So I decided to bring a veggie tray tonight to the bbq. They are going to be serving chicken which is fine with me, but I know there will be the evertempting chips, which is why I am for sure bringing the veggie tray trying to curb the carb cravings. Here is a list of some alcoholic beverages you can bring to those summer bbqs that wont totally cost you.

***RUM AND COKE*** (1.5 pts for one)
Just mix 1oz. rum with some diet coke

***VODKA AND SODA*** (1.5 pts for one)
