It’s saturday!! Woohoo!! Hope you are all having a leisurely day. I am not…I work every saturday. (True story) This post was inspired by well..cocktails. I turned 21 this year, and have been going out a lot more. It’s been very important for me to find cocktails that aren’t full of sugar and calories. No matter what, cocktails are not healthy, but they sure are fun. This girl likes to break the rules!!
I won’t lie when I say I like to have a few drinks, and dance the night away with my friends. I like to keep my cocktails light so I don’t get heavier every time I go out. Let’s face it, alcohol is empty calories!!
So here I wanted to list my favorite lower calorie cocktails.
- Vodka with Diet Tonic
- Flavored Vodka with Diet Soda
–Green apple Vodka with diet coke (surprisingly tasty)
–Pineapple Vodka with diet sprite
–Vanilla Vodka with Diet coke
-Passion Fruit vodka with Club soda
- Vodka with soda and a splash of cranberry. (You can get this anywhere!)
As you can see I usually drink vodka because I like it the best! But I also enjoy white wine and champagne!
Other tips to lighten up cocktails:
- Do NOT order anything that has to be blended
- The fruity martini’s are full of sugar
- Order club or diet soda for a mixer
- If you are stumped, order wine!
Like most other things it’s important to have balance. So if one night you want to have a Pina Colada or a Margarita then go with it!! One every once and a while wont hurt you!
And more then anything…HAVE FUN!! And don’t turn into a sloppy drunk! That’s no fun for anyone!
