The 8 Best Drink Mixers IF YOU ARE Attempting to Be Healthy

Posted by Nehal Preet on January 31st, 2021

Below are a few "healthy" mixers to transform your night from a regrettable mess to a classy outing worthy of a Trader Joe's newsletter feature, just about all with low-cost, effective drinks that keep away from the weight and social awkwardness.

1. Diet Tonic Water
Forget about Snoop Dogg's Gin and Juice, Gin and diet tonic is healthier, tastier, and the adult version of Sprite. Gin is usually associated with old ladies and slippers (remember CeCe from Gossip Woman?!), but with the right mixer, it becomes an effortless treat. Most people combine gin with regular tonic loaded with sugar, calories, and sodium. However, diet tonic has no calories, sugars, and minimal sodium (25 mg per 8 fluid ounces). Read about Wine Delivery OttawaBeer Delivery Ottawa and much more related to the same.

2. LaCroix Water

I'm the queen of sober LaCroix water-drinking; add alcohol to the equation and I become a flippin' world dominator. Because of it's sparkling nature, La Croix spruces up liquors/wines and turns them into bubbling gold. I tried this Red Wine Spritzer recipe and added Berry LaCroix water to red wine - it was sparkling grape juice with all the current pep but none of the extra sugars or body fat.

3. Sugar-Free Cranberry Juice

Often periods, a drink becomes "healthier" just by adding the sugar-free or reduced-sugar versions of juices and sodas. A Vodka Cranberry (or a fancier Cosmopolitan) doesn't have to rot your the teeth with processes sugars. Instead, buy Ocean Spray 100% Fruit juice. There's no glucose additional and a serving is equivalent to one serving of fruit. Discover, it's like living in the generate aisle.

4. Fennel (Or Other Medicinal) Tea

Steeping tea in beer is the newest hipster fad, so do it for the Snapstory and your health. The variation of Tea Beer I tried had been Stella Artois mixed with fennel tea from Germany (it can also be purchased on Amazon). The lighting, musty qualities of Stella complimented the earthy fennel tones perfectly - I sensed like Bilbo Baggins in his Shire home. Fennel has a slew of health benefits including improving digestion, balancing hormones, and boosting immunity.

5. Coconut Water

My tongue despises coconut water on its own, but it's also dangerously fond of girly cocktails and gin. I attempted this Sparkling Strawberry Gin Cocktail and had been surprised at how easy and flavorful it had been. Gin, coconut drinking water, clean strawberries, and a splash of sparkling water, in total, around 230 calorie consumption (which isn't bad for a mixed drink with fresh fruit). Coconut water is a great source of potassium, calcium, magnesium, and anti-oxidants.

6. Guinness Stout

Who knew Irish beers could be "healthy" mixers? Although I use that expression loosely, Guinness provides reputation for being a less trashy beer health-wise. At 125 calories per 12 oz pint and made with roasted barley malt (fiber and anti-oxidant benefits), this stout surpasses Corona and Miller any time.

7. Reduced Glucose Orange Juice

Colorful mixers automatically make a drink sexy, flirtatious, and delicious (it's all the high fructose corn syrup and calories that dress it down). Screwdrivers, a combo of orange fruit juice and vodka, is simple but deceiving- throwing in normal "orange juice" doesn't make a glass or two healthy.

Eight ounces contains 25 grams of carbohydrates, 21 grams of sugar, and 110 calories. Slim it down with the sugar-free/light edition and still flirt with the vitamins and minerals.

8. Aloe Vera and Honey

This isn't for the Budweiser, regular rum punch-palates out there. Sophisticated and great, these ingredients are anti-inflammatory and photogenic. Thank Pinterest for helping me find Aloe Vera Margaritas, beverages with honey, aloe vera, tequila, and salt. Honey is a natural sweetener without any of the processed goo - and it goes great with any light, summery cocktail.

You don't need sugary sodas (@Jack and Coke) or from-the-can pineapple fruit juice to bear the burn of Svedka or even Jose Cuervo. Personally, I'm a "pictures woman," although ditching the calorie consumption and embracing the wincing face/raw throat isn't specifically optimal either.

Like bralettes and waterproof mascara, healthy mixers will always be there for you - they won't wreck your body AND they help to make drinking a little more tolerable, no kale or spinach juice needed. Bottoms up!
