COCKTAILS WITHOUT THE CALORIES

Now that I’ve got your attention….here’s how to slim down your favorite drinks with these four simple tips.  Cheers!

  • MASTER MARGARITAS, fill your glass with Jose Cuervo Authentic Light Margarita.  Eight ounces has just 181 calories, half the amount in most margaritas.
  • MAKE DIY DAIQUIRIS, blend rum with fresh or frozen unsweetened strawberries, lime juice, stevia and shaved ice rather than a premade sugar packed mixer, you’ll save about 150 calories a half cup, says Alyse Levine, R.D., nutrition advisor for Livestrong.com.
  • TAKE OUT THE TONIC, “Mix your drink with seltzer or soda water instead and you can slash 80 calories”, says Dawn Jackson Blatner R.D., a FITNESS advisory board member and author of The Flexitarian Diet.
  • ROCK ON, enjoy flavored vodka on the rocks instead of fruity mixed drinks.  Try Voli light vodkas, one and half ounces of which have about 80 calories.
