Entertaining guests might sound like a good excuse to ditch your healthy eating plans, but there’s no need! But just like in our appetizer post, we can use get togethers as a time to continue with flavors that not only taste good, but are better for you. Here are some delicious low sugar cocktails to try at your next gathering.
- Coconut Gin and Tonic.Using naturally sweet coconut water means you don’t add any sugar to this recipe. The creative twist on a G+T is sure to impress.
- Dark and Stormy. Spicy ginger gives you a boost in this version of the classic cocktail. It uses homemade ginger syrup instead of store-bought ginger beer, which means you can reduce the amount of sugar consumed.
- Sparkling Sangria. Sangria is actually one of the better cocktails you can make due to the fruit that it contains. Seltzer water – all the flavor, none of the calories – is the key ingredient to making this zingy drink low impact, high flavor.
Entertaining while staying on track can be done, it just takes a few slight changes to your normal routine. Try these cocktail recipes at your next party and give your feedback in the comments!
