In the summertime, it’s so easy to sip on mimosas and summery sangrias but do they ever make you feel bloated, uncomfortable and ruin your buzz? Do you ever go to the bar, have a pint of beer and all of a sudden your dress is EVEN TIGHTER?! Yeah, me too! Here are some great alternative drinks to think about next time you want to booze without bloating.
Red, Red Wine
If you’re a wine lover like Moi, you know you crave the bubbly sometimes. But bubbly comes with calories, so drop your fave champagnes and white wines because all they do is make you bloat and give you a sugar hangover. By switching to Red Wine you decrease the number of calories and sugar you consume! Also, red wine is full of antioxidants & can help prevent heart disease and cancer.
Kombucha is a great way to bring together the fizzy juice flavours you crave with the health benefits that regular juice doesn’t provide. Kombucha is a fermented tea that naturally contains probiotics and healthy organic acids. It’s low in sugar, caffeine and calories, making it a great choice to mix with your fave cocktails! Give it a try, it’s super popular for a good reason.
A Twist On a Classic
Whiskey and Coca-Cola is a signature cocktail, but full of carbonated sugar that no one wants when they’re trying to look nice in that cute, tight dress. If you are really craving this classic, try Whiskey and Coca-Cola Zero, the sugar-free alternative!
Dilute your Vodka with Seltzers or Water!
Vodka Seltzers or Vodka Waters are one of the best ways to avoid unnecessary bloating. There is no sugar in this drink and it waters down the vodka so you don’t taste it. Add some berries or a bit of lime for more flavour!
Squash the carbs with Light Beer
Beer can be very refreshing but it’s the biggest culprit of unnecessary carbs. So if you’re really craving that taste with less bloating try light beers. These options are low carb and help you get that beer fix without bloating as much. Rock that bikini and drink a Corona Light!
Gin & Tonic
Ah, Gin. The bane of my existence. Well, some people love it and for good reason. It has barely any calories on its own and is made from Juniper Berries, a super berry. So drink a Gin tonic or Gin on the rocks if you are feeling brave!
Try Tequila on the rocks or Tequila shots!
Instead of drinking your tequila in sweet and salty margaritas (which are full of unnecessary sugar, but yes very yummy) try having your tequila on the rocks or with soda. Tequila itself doesn’t consist of many calories, it’s more of the mix than anything that you should avoid!
