Drinking without worrying about the calories just got real. I give to you the 7 cocktails with 162 calories or less according to a French Cosmopolitan article. And we all know the French don’t get fat. Bon appétit.
1. El Mimosa (73 cals.)
This fizzy, light and sweet drink will keep you in a bubbly mood from dusk to dawn. The orange juice it contains has all that vitamin C you’ll need to get through your raving. The carbonation in Champaign satiates hunger, so your figure won’t be compromised — and neither will your wallet.
2. Americano (110 cals.)
This succulent drink is short on calories because it lacks both soda and juice. It was also named the Americano because it was so adored by Americans. So it won’t come as a surprise to me that you guys will continue downing these like skittles after hearing that they’re one of the least caloric cocktails out there. Cheers to America.
3. El Bellini (123 cals.)
This one is a sweet, tastebud-awakening cocktail for sunrise. The dry white wine compliments the fruity peach nectar to compose a drink perfect for a relaxed, sunny day with your favorite group of chicas by the pool. If you’ve been having heart problems, white wine unclogs veins, freeing your heart to spring lovin’.
4. Margarita (139 cals.)
Tequila. It makes me happy. Very happy. And the best part? Tequila was ranked one of the most slimming liquors. Thanks to its agave blue plant origins, studies have shown this alcohol lowers obesity. There are many other benefits to Tequila, making this drink a must.
5. Gin & Tonic AKA Gin Fizz (140 cals.)
Classy, strong, bitter-sweet. All the things we love in a drink in this one cocktail. Gin and tonics are made in different ways internationally. So, if your patriotic mix is feeling a bit dull, try another version. In France, this cocktail, called a Gin Fizz, is made with gin, lemonade and lemon juice.
6. Mojito (157 cals.)
The beach gets hot. And the sweat kicks in. But then there’s that super cute lifeguard to flirt with. No worries, just head to the closest beach bar and grab yourself this Cuban mix. The hot and the cold, both so intense, put them together, it just makes sense.
7. Cuba Libre (162 cals.)
Cuba and freedom — has a nice ring to it. This rum-based fizzy, commonly known as a rum and coke, gets you tipsy quick. Drink one or two before going out and you’ll be sure to dominate the dance floor. Vamos.
