My Guilt Free Go-To Cocktail
Girls – you can 100% lose weight and get fit without giving up drinking. If you’re downing bottles of rosé with your bestie on the regular, you for sure have to make some changes, but definitely don’t need to go cold turkey. Every time I share one of my Bun On the Run travel blogs I share my go-to drink, but wanted to make sure you had my #lsfapproved Guilt Free Go-To Cocktail on hand and ready to make!
I made this drink tonight LIVE on Instagram and realized, even though it’s in a bunch of my travel blogs, I’ve never actually added it to my recipes or solo in a blog for you. Yes pina coladas, mai tai’s and other sugary drinks are out, but you can totally still do happy hour without feeling guilty after.
I can’t even tell you how many nights I used to go out, get drinks filled with simple syrups and sugary things, and come home feeling like CRAAAAAAP. Not ok. It was more than the booze, the sugar was making me so sick. Plus it added hundreds of unnecessary calories to something that is already an extra. So not ok.
This drink is my FAVE. Under 100 calories and just freaking delish!
1.5oz (one jigger) Tequila or Vodka
1 cup Mineral or Soda Water (low sodium)
1/2 fresh lime juice
1 mint sprig smacked or muddles
*About 96 calories per serving . Recipe makes 1 serving.
Adding the mint and lime give this drink a super fresh and delish flavor without adding any extra calories. I love doing it with tequila, lots of extra lime, and sometimes jalapeño to make a REAL skinny marg! You can have your drinks guilt free and enjoy a good night out!
