It’s never a good idea to get too many of your calories from alcohol since those calories are not the kind that gives you healthy fuel. However, it is hard to drink without gulping down a lot of calories. Instead, try these cocktails that are still really delicious but go lighter on the calories, which is good for everyone in the end.
Whenever you get a drink without any sugary mixes, you know you’re on the right path. Vodka soda is one of those simple but perfectly refreshing drinks that are super low in calories. You can also have it with gin or tequila and soda, and to make it a little better for you, ask for seltzer or sparkling water instead of club soda since it has more sodium.
A Moscow mule is such a refreshing drink, especially in the summer, and usually comes in a really fun glass! The best way to make this drink less caloric is to ask for no simple syrup or at least light on it. The rest of the cocktail is just vodka, lime juice, and ginger beer, which on its own won’t cost you a lot of calories.
