Summer is the season for sangria, margaritas, and piña coladas! But these delicious cocktails can quickly become your worst enemy if you’re try to maintain a “beach body.”
It’s hard to say no when all your friends have a glass in hand and you just want to unwind on a lovely summer evening. I have a solution that will let you enjoy cocktail season without the guilt. With fewer than 200 calories each, these delicious drinks will keep you refreshed as you enjoy your summer.
Margarita: 139 calories
Mimosa: 85 calories
It’s very easy to make. Try substituting the orange juice with grapefruit or pineapple juice for a tasty result!
Bellini: 133 calories
Like the mimosa, this peach-flavoured sparkling wine cocktail is cool and refreshing on a hot summer day.
Gin and Tonic: 155 calories
Yessssss! The classic gin and tonic counts as a low-calorie drink. So naturally, we had to include it on this list! A pure delight that’s very easy to make.
Mojito: 157 calories
A mojito is an explosion of flavours that will delight your taste buds. And since all the ingredients (except the rum) are super light, you can enjoy it guilt-free! Tip: Mojitos are much more authentic (and lower in calories) when made with cane sugar.
Vodka Martini: 147 calories
Also called a Dirty Martini.
Cosmopolitan: 150 calories
We think this “girly” cocktail has gained popularity in recent years because it’s ultra light, and because sometimes you just need a little sweetness in this harsh world. And yes, men can enjoy it too! 😉
With fewer than 200 calories each, these seven cocktails will help you maintain your figure this summer. But remember, moderation is even better. CHEERS!
