For those who decided to lose some weight this year or who simply want fewer calories in their diets, here is a list of delicious fresh and light cocktails to enjoy this January (or the whole year round).
First one on the list is the Black Cow Vodka ‘Skinny Cow’ and it only contains 55 calories. It will give you the super smooth taste of Black Cow Vodka, while keeping the calorie number low – only 55 per cocktail. The ingredients for one cocktail are: 25 ml of Black Cow Vodka, the juice of half a lime, soda water, and cayenne pepper. Add all of them, minus the soda into an ice filled glass, still until chilled and then top it with soda. For design you could add a sprinkle of cayenne pepper and fresh lime slices.
The ‘Aluna Coconut – Grapefruit Soda’ mix is clean, fresh, and delicious. It offers a good combination of natural and sustainably sourced coconut rum with the refreshing taste of grapefruit. To make it at home you will need 50 ml of Aluna Coconut, 50 ml of fresh grapefruit juice, and some cloudy lemonade. All you have to do is pour all the ingredients over ice, stir, and at the end garnish with a grapefruit wedge.
“Aluna Coconut is all-natural, cut with coconut water and has a fraction of the sugar in other coconut rums so is a good option for drinking better in the New Year,” said Guy Ritchie, the founder of Aluna.
The last one is The Dubliner Irish Whiskey and Soda. It is a super low-calorie whiskey cocktail with only 35 Kcal per serving. First step is to fill a hi-ball glass with ice, add 25 ml of The Dublin Irish Whiskey in it, top it with soda water, and garnish with a wedge of lime or lemon.
