‘Tis the season for family, friends, cocktails, treats and lots of good cheer. I collected some of my favorite healthier cocktails from my food blogger friends, just in time for the holidays!
I hate to be a downer, but did you know that some of these pretty, fun cocktails can have HUNDREDS of calories in them? Couple that with ALLLLLL the cookies and treats we are eating these days and that’s way too many calories.
I figured we could all use some healthier options for the holidays, right? It’s all about moderation and balance (are you guys sick of hearing me say that???) and I would never tell you NOT to have the cocktail, so let’s just lighten up the ones we love, ok?
And just so we’re clear, balance + moderation = healthier holiday cocktails (and lots of water).
Let’s not forget that these babies are only lightened up, so drink a couple and those calories add up too!
Ok, I don’t know about you but I am getting thirsty!
