I’ve been really into IPA and craft beer lately, but I’ve noticed the extra calories are making it difficult to stay in shape. For the summer months I want to stay away from beer and go for lighter cocktails.
Please share your favorite cocktails, the simpler the recipe, the better.
I’ll start. My favorite: Moscow Mule (ginger beer, vodka, and lime).

Moscow Mule is my fave too but the lowest cal option I know of is vodka, soda water and fresh lime

Mowcow mules (add in some ginger brandy, it’s great!), dark and stormies (ginger beer, lime, and black rum), chambord sours (chambord and sour mix), dreamsicles (orange juice, cream, whipped vodka), margaritas on the rocks, spiked lemonade

Bay Breeze is my simple go-to! Cranberry juice, pineapple juice, & vodka. Not sure how healthy it is though, but it is yummy & refreshing.

I love Midori sours! Haven’t had one of those in a long time…
When I’m trying to keep the calories down, I go for a diet soda with some sort of liquor mixed in. Like Rum and Diet Coke or Kinky and Diet SevenUp. Midor and Diet SevenUp is a great mix, too

I had an incredible drink the other day. I don’t remember all of the ingredients, but it included vodka, aloe vera, lychee, and rose petals. Drool.

I love vodka so I usually go with a cape cod(cranberry,vodka & lime), vodka tonic(vodka, tonic & lime), or a cherry vodka sour(vodka, sweet and sour mix & maraschino cherries or grenadine.
