For a lot of us, it wouldn’t be the holidays without a good holiday party, and some spirits to go along with it. The thing is, most of these drinks are heavy on fat and sugar, and can pack on the calories when you factor in the food you’ll also be indulging at the same time.
“Whenever you’re not making the drink yourself, it’s best to just keep it simple,” says Alexandra Mitchell, Creative Director and Bartender at The Gibson and Marvin. “Stay away from fruity cocktails and soda-based drinks.”
Instead of sitting out on the holiday cheer, know that there are diet-friendly, low-calorie holiday cocktails options out there too, to help keep your diet on track! Here, Mitchell provides a few specialty cocktails you can still indulge in this holiday season — and they’re delicious too!
