The end of the year holidays are fast approaching: gifts, Christmas trees, family meals and the festive New Year's Eve! There are many reasons to have a delicious cocktail to celebrate the end of the year with dignity.
However, as we all know, alcohol is caloric. This is the case for some cocktails such as the Mai Taï (230 calories) or the Long Island Iced Tea (274 calories). But if this year has been very sporty for you and you don't want to ruin all your efforts, here are some cocktails to enjoy without having to worry about gaining any stone.
Made with dry white wine and peach juice, Bellini has only 123 calories per glass. We approve!
If you're not very much into tomato juice, you'll have to think twice about it. The Bloody Mary, made with vodka, lemon juice, tomato juice and sometimes Tabasco, contains as many calories as the Bellini.
If you love Mexican cocktails, you can continue to order Margaritas. This delicious drink made with Tequila, Cointreau and lime juice has less than 140 calories. Hooray!
Good news for Gin Tonic lovers, this little cocktail is not very caloric. Count 140 calories on average per glass.
The famous Mojito is not a very caloric cocktail either: count between 150 and 160 calories per cocktail. However, be careful not to overuse the cane sugar.
To avoid drinking high-calorie cocktails, don't hesitate to rely on ice cubes, and drink from small glasses.
