Super low calorie cocktails for summer sipping and getting skinny

We all know a vodka soda is practically zero calorie and almost guilt-free, but it’s not exactly the most fun way to sip the afternoon away. What about all the sweet tooths out there? What about those poolside cravings?!

These 5 summer cocktails are low calorie, sacrifice absolutely no flavour, and really easy to throw together for guests or just your lucky self.

Skinny mojito (via AllRecipes.com)
It’s the ultimate summer cocktail, but packed full of sugar right? Not any more!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 ounces rum
6 mint leaves plus extra for garnish (add more if you like it extra minty)
1/2 ounce sweetener syrup
Soda water
Lime

How to make it:
Add the rum, mint leaves, sweetener syrup, and lime to a cocktail shaker. Fill the rest of it up with ice and shake hard. Use the strainer to pour it into a glass with ice, then top up with soda water and add a few more mint leaves to garnish.

Watermelon champagne cocktail (via That’s So Michelle)

The ultimate summer fruit combined with the most luxurious dry sparkling wine. Champagne really can fit into your diet.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup dry champagne

1/2 cup homemade watermelon juice

Splash of lime

How to make it:

To make the watermelon juice, slice it and puree in a food processor or blender. Push the puree through a fine mesh strainer with a spoon to remove any seeds.

Add half a cup of your watermelon puree to a wine glass, add a squeeze of lime, then top up with the champagne.

1/3 cup orange liqueur

Juice of 1/2 lemon
