Cheers to cocktails.
A DIY cocktail bar can be anything you want it to be: a batch of you and your friends’ favorite cocktail, a fruit topping set-up, and various themed add-ons that make it a Valentine’s-worthy drink. Cocktails aren’t typically the first thing to pop in your head when you think of ‘health’, but there are ways to make them a guilt-free drink.
- Liquor, such as gin, is less calories than something like beer or wine, so test out your bartending skills and leave the wine for another girl’s night.
- Spice it up! Ginger, turmeric, and cayenne go great in cocktails, and amp up the health factor as well.
- Skimp on the sugar. Cranberry juice, orange juice, and the like may make your cocktail sweeter, but the added sugars increase the calorie count. Make your own syrups and juices with fresh ingredients so you can have your cocktail, and sip it too.
