Low Cal Low Sugar Skinny Cocktails


Who says you can’t enjoy sumner, stay in shape and have an adult beverage too 🍸🍹🥃? Here are some of my faves

And remember, I don’t condone diet sodas, energy drinks, etc BUT it’s ok once in a while, just like anything else (i.e., 🍩🍔🌮🌭🍟🍦🍭🍫). I usually opt for plain soda water in my drinks but below are some other options too

Opting for diet sodas lowers the sugars, which is what makes cocktails so high in calories so you’re swapping one evil 😈 out for the other but it’s ok 😉. Soda water when you can & when you can’t, enjoy one or two w/ diet & call it a day .
Here ya go:

🍹Skinny Margarita🍹
Tequila (duh!), soda water, fresh squeezed lime , a packet of stevia & ice. Most bars & restaurants use agave but by adding stevia instead it’s only about 75-100 cals & 5 grams of sugar vs over 500 calories & 40+ grams of sugar in the reg margs

🥃Rum & Diet Coke🥃
Run, Diet Coke or Pepsi & ice. That’s it. Same as rum & coke but about 150 fewer calories & 25 or fewer grams of sugar

🍸Diet Red Bull & Vodka🍸
Diet Red Bull, vodka & ice. Yes, I know, an energy drink. No they aren’t good for you, but neither is diet soda, dessert, bacon, etc. Once in a while AND moderation (1 not 5 lol) won’t kill you & if you’re going out when you’ve had a long day & you’re tired, this will help

🍸Vodka Gimlet🍸
Rosie’s like juice OR simple syrup, vodka or tequila & ice. That’s it, guilt free, clean & about 150 cals

🍸Classic Martini🍸
Vermouth & gin with an olive & that’s it! Only about 175 calories & minimal sugars from the alcohol

🍹Mojito🍹
Soda water, sugar, muddled mint leaves 🌱 & 🍈 like. About 160 cals & 10-15 grams of sugars depending on the amount of sugar added. Ask for lightly sweetened

🥃Paloma🥃
Grapefruit juice, soda, lime 🍈 & ice 👌🏼. Simple & easy & only about 160 calories. Skip the sugar around the rim to minimize sugars & cals

🥃Old Fashioned🥃
Bourbon w/ a splash of bitters for flavor & ice + a bit of sugar IF desired only

🍸Vodka Soda🍸
Just soda, vodka & fresh squeezed lime 🍈. Less than 100 cals

🥂Champagne🥂
Only 90 cals! Less than wine 🍷 & most mixed drinks

🍸Gin & Tonic🍸
Like the name says, just like the name says

Enjoy 🥂
