The weather is getting warmer, the sun is shining more and cocktails are becoming lighter. These sugar-free Mojito Wine Spritzers are under 100 calories, lightly sweet, refreshing and guilt-free!
Ahhh…the weather has been so nice and it feels fantastic to be out of my winter hibernation. I always seem to “hide out” in the winter.
I don’t actually become depressed, I just kind of become a huge hermit. Now that the sun is shining more and I have been running outside more, it feels great to feel normal again.
Step aside Cabernet and Pinot Noir, I am moving back to my white wine and light cocktails. I am so seasonal with my drinks and food it’s not even funny.
If you are like me, you enjoy a fun cocktail (or two) with this changing weather. I decided to put two of my favorites together, wine and mojitos!
But let’s be honest, you can enjoy these Mojito Wine Spritzers any time of the year. There are no rules that say you can only drink these babies in the warm weather of the spring or summer.
They are pretty enough and have such a gorgeous presentation to drink the all year long.
I love mojitos. I mean, who could say no to muddled fresh mint?
But sometimes all that sugar gives me a belly ache. Not any more!
I am really trying to cut back on sugar and carbs which is not always easy. Did you know that some of your favorite cocktails can have upwards of 400 calories and 30 grams of sugar in one cocktail?
That is quite eye opening and pretty disturbing. If you would like one, go for it and thoroughly enjoy it. But any more than one of them my stomach would be killing me.
I am trying to be conscious of all of that unnecessary sugar and trying to prevent those stomach aches by cutting back on sugar in any way that I can.
The club soda or seltzer also cuts down on sugar and calories while also keeping you hydrated at the same time. We all know that alcohol naturally dehydrates you so any way to add some more water is optimal.
You should also drink at least one or two glasses of water in between each cocktail you drink to help keep you hydrated. This is very important in preventing the dreaded hangover.
The club soda or seltzer also helps cut down on calories too.Go ahead and add the liquid stevia if you would like some added sweetness.
The stevia will help to make it taste more like a classic regular mojito, if that is what you are going for. Sometimes I add the stevia and other times I leave it out.
They both taste delicious.
