Low-Cal Cocktails (Even Tho Wine is Healthiest)

OK, so we've validated that wine has health benefits, and that it's for the most part, the healthiest alcoholic beverage choice. However, I admit, there are times you want to explore some other options. Summer time, pool time, outdoor patios are perfect for wine but might lack that mint sprig or pretty umbrella you need to give you that mental feeling of "relaxation time". But the problem is that hard liquor drinks carry so many more calories, in their liquor content and most auspiciously in the cocktail cohorts making up those frilly flavors. So here is a list of cocktails, departing from the obvious choice ofwine being naturally lower in calories, that provide alternative dressings for lower calorie concoctions...

Watermelon Mojito: 100 Calories
A whole day of eating right can go down in the swirl of cocktail -- with crazy-high calories and weakened willpower. So we've put a few drinks on a diet, starting with the Cuban mojito. Instead of using sugar, use a wooden pestle or a big spoon to gently crush cubes of watermelon with fresh mint leaves. Add rum and sparkling water for a sweet mojito with half the usual calories.

Skinny Piña Colada: 229 Calories

Rum that's infused with a coconut flavor can cut about 300 calories from a piña colada. What's out? The sugary, coconut milk mix. Measure one shot of coconut rum. Then add fresh strawberries, a splash of agave syrup, and blend with ice. You get a tall, 12-ounce tropical cocktail for about the same calories as in a handful of pretzel twists.

Shochu Cosmo: 70 Calories

Make a super-slim cosmopolitan by replacing the vodka with shochu, a Japanese spirit with a smooth flavor. A 2-ounce serving has only about 35 calories. Add splashes of diet cranberry juice, fresh lime juice, and orange juice, and then toss in a martini shaker. This cosmo shakes out at half the calories of a traditional cosmopolitan.

Skinny Vodka Iced Tea: 80 Calories

The mix of lemonade and sweet iced tea, favored by golfer Arnold Palmer, becomes a popular cocktail when you add a shot of vodka. You can slice off half the calories in this tall, cool drink by using low-calorie lemonade and sweet-tea-flavored vodka. This specialty vodka is lower in calories than traditional types.

Slim Berry Daiquiri: 145 Calories

Simple, unadorned berries can help slim down a strawberry daiquiri. Start with 1 cup of no-sugar-added berries, either fresh or frozen. You get intense berry flavor for just 50 calories, compared with 255 calories in berries frozen with syrup. Add rum, ice, and sweeten the deal with 1 teaspoon of stevia, a sugar substitute. Blend into a slim and delicious frozen concoction.

Wine is an alcoholic beverage made from fermented grapes or other fruits. The natural chemical balance of grapes lets them ferment without the addition of sugars, acids, enzymes, water, or other nutrients..This post is of considerable use for me and my friends. Great experience has been shared with us. Thanks for this post.
