Happy First #FuzzyFriday of 2017! Cheers to us!
One of the first things I think of when it comes to the new year is resolutions and diets. The number one thing I hear people talk about is shedding weight, getting fit, losing their holiday bulge, and a “new year, new you.” But one thing people fail to realize is how much their cocktails affect their success in their weight loss progress.
So today I thought I’d share with you 10 cocktails under 100 calories.
These really are very simple, not complicated fancy and complex recipes, but they are what they are. Easy little cocktails that won’t work against our diet goals. Keeping a few things handy in your bar cart like these are just what you need to have stocked and ready when you’re wanting a cocktail.
The first part is the mixer…
- Diet soda (Diet Coke, Diet Sprite, Diet Dr. Pepper)
- Club soda
- La Croix
- Diet Cranberry Juice (5 cal)
- Fresca (0 cal)
- Fresh Lemon and Lime juice
- Diet Ginger Ale
Just a few ideas for you.
Next comes the alcohol. The key part of this is to not overdo the amount of liquor.
- Crown Royal
The key? How much of the alcohol you put in, the proof, and if you dilute it with some of the low cal/no cal mixers. The higher the proof, the higher the calories. Also, use more mixer and less alcohol.
So what are some drinks you can make that are 100 or less? These.
- Malibu and Diet Coke
- Vodka Soda (with lime)
- Crown and Diet Coke
- Rum and Diet Coke
- Vodka, Cranberry Juice, Soda
- Vanilla Vodka and Diet Ginger Ale
- Tequilla, Soda and lime
- Low Cal Beer
- Skinnygirl Drinks
What I made for myself this week? A little vodka with LaCroix Pina Fraise and some fresh lime. So good, light, refreshing, and just what I needed to chill me out a bit while I worked at home today getting ready for my stressful and busy upcoming next week.
So what are you celebrating this week? What is your success of the week we’re toasting to you for?
I’m so excited for what’s in store for 2017!
