Here are 3 cocktail ideas when you want a fancy drink full of seasonal fun, but low in sugar….
1. Hot Toddy
hot water + lemon juice + whiskey + honey
My favorite winter cocktail because you get all of the benefits of HLW, with a little adult fun.
Pro-tip: Make a hot apple toddy by using apple cinnamon tea instead of plain water.
2. Winter Sangria
brewed chai tea + red or white wine + sliced pears & clementines
Using 1/2 tea + 1/2 wine cuts calories and alcohol in half, and increases the hydration factor.
Pro-tip: Serve cold or simmering in a pot like spiced wine.
3. Cardamom Spritz
prosecco + cardamom bitters
A flute of prosecco is already one of the lowest calorie alcoholic drinks, and the cardamom adds seasonal flare.
Pro-tip: Use sparkling water instead of prosecco for a non-alcoholic version.
