5 Simple Tips to Cut Calories in your Cocktails
After last week’s intense email about improving the gratitude in our children, I thought an easy tip from liquor.com might be what you need at the end of the day.
Restaurant margaritas can run upwards of 800 calories and there are simple ones to make at home for under 200 calories. Here are 5 tips to reduce calories.
The first is to choose the right booze. In general, it’s best to stick with vodka, gin, tequila and whiskey over Kahlua or Baileys. Tequila also contains a natural sugar and is gluten-free.
Secondly, keep it simple. The fewer ingredients the healthier especially limiting fruit juices, syrups, and pre-made mixes.
Third is to get creative with flavor. Replace the high calorie ingredients with club soda, diet tonic water, fresh lime or lemon juice and herbs such as mint, rosemary or cilantro. Ginger, cucumber and jalapeno add flavor too.
(Did You Know? Margarita: 2 oz tequila, Cointreau 1 oz, ½ oz fresh lime juice. Hemingway daiquiri: 2 oz rum, 1 oz simple sugar, 1 oz fresh lime juice.)
Fourth is exercising portion control. More important than less calories is not becoming an impaired driver.
Lastly, don’t forget about water and food. Water helps minimize hangovers but more importantly gives you a chance to figure out how tipsy you are. Alternate drinks with water. Eating healthy snacks avoids the midnight pizza or dessert you crave after a night of drinking.

Vollure is the newest filler for fine wrinkles. It doesn’t project as much as Juvederm but is smoother and lasts up to 18 months.
