Top 5 Healthy Cocktails

By  |  6 Comments

It’s finally getting warmer out and soon it will be summer!  My favorite thing to do during the summer is sit around with friends sip on some cocktails and enjoy the warm weather and good company.  With that being said, 9 times out of 10 I always choose a gin and tonic or wine to drink if that’s an option. I have decided I need to explore the realm of cocktails a bit more so I asked for a little help from some friends.  Here are some of their healthier cocktail recipes so you can enjoy time with friends without all the added sugar that is typically in cocktails.

Despite alcohol not being great for you, I believe in any diet there is room for the foods you enjoy.  To me balance is key to eating.

    These are some great ideas for cocktails. I love making cocktails but I have to sometimes watch the sugar content. Thanks for sharing.

      Yes, sometimes the sugar is where the cocktail turns bad for you. Glad you enjoyed 🙂
