Moderation is key, and with the right alcoholic drinks, you don’t even have to feel guilty about enjoying a cocktail every now and again.
Some of these drinks even use base mixers that are nutritious, especially considering that we’re talking cocktail recipes here.
Here’s a breakdown of a few options that wont blow your diet. Enjoy responsibly!
Strawberry Margarita Recipe
This low cal margarita is perfectly delicious. It uses fresh fruit to make a thick, dessert tasting adult beverage that delivers a healthy dose of vitamin C and antioxidants. Enjoy it while spending a day in the sunshine (or in the rain, it’s really just that good).

Strawberry Daiquiri Recipe
Just like the strawberry margarita recipe above, this cocktail is made with real fruit. It has a smoothie-like consistency and is a good way to satisfy both your sweet tooth and your want for a cocktail, without throwing off your diet.
Another relatively healthy option when it comes to alcoholic drinks that aren't overly caloric is champagne; How many Calories in a Glass? Studies have just recently shown that champagne rivals red wine in antioxidant properties.
