THESE COCKTAILS ARE LESS GUILT-INDUCING THAN THE OTHERS.
It’s the holiday season; it’s when you start getting busy with house parties and after-work gatherings. The perfect time to drink, we understand. Just remember to keep it to one glass at a time, to avoid piling up excessive calories. Too much drinking can also lead to health problems like high blood pressure. Meanwhile, take your pick from these four options.
VODKA SODA, 96 calories. This drink is essentially soda water spiked with vodka. Since you get zero calories out of soda water, the remainder will come only from the alcohol itself.
GIN AND TONIC, 143 calories. Tonic water isn’t just delish, but also counts for only 10 calories per ounce. Score!
MOJITO, 168 calories. If you love rum, forget mai tais and opt for a refreshing mojito instead. Along with the alcohol, you’ll get a swirl of fresh mint leaves, lime and sugar.
MARTINI, 176 calories. Get a classic martini, which packs a mix of vermouth and gin. You can also request for it to be made dry, which equals to less vermouth and more alcohol.
