Skinny Cocktails for Summer
Posted in: FOOD
We all love a good shot now and then, but not when it gets too detrimental for our health and ruins our beach bodies! And with summer drawing near, we’re bound to long nights of talking and unwinding…surely with a glass that can give us a bit of buzz. When we want to have fun but can’t risk the side-effects, there’s always a healthy version around. The good news is, we’ve got recipes for healthy cocktails, too! (Did we mention that this means you still get to have some dessert because of the fewer calories?) Check them out:
Pink Starburst Cocktail
No, it doesn’t taste like strawberries—it taste like the Starburst candy with a punch. And some of the ingredients for this may just be sitting in your fridge or pantry already: half and half, orange juice, and diet lemon-lime soda, namely. Check out the rest of the recipe here.
White Strawberry Lemon Sangria
Nothing else really defines summer like the burst of strawberries, the tang of lemon, and white wine. Have a bottle of sangria for yourself made with fresh fruits, soda, rum, and white wine. Complete recipe right here!
Peach lovers, this is for you. This one has sparkling drink, peaches, and tea mixed in it—perfect for light drinks. Doesn’t hurt that it’s one of the healthiest ones on this list. Here’s the recipe.
Skinny Spicy Tequila Cocktail
This totals to about 150 calories, is made of three citrus juices—pineapple, lime, and orange—and jalapeno Tequila for that spicy kick! The complete recipe can be found here.
Agua Fresca de Melon
Another one of the healthiest drinks in the list, this cocktail is made with chunks of watermelon, sparkling water, and mint. Honey is used as a sweetener—start small and add more to taste. Skinny Ms has three other healthy summer cocktails on the list worth checking out. Recipes here.
Skinny Sunrise Cocktail

Boozy Green Lemonade
Green juice lovers, you should get excited for this one. This lemonade has greens mixed in with spirit and soda. You read that right—greens! Other ingredients are celery, apples, and lemons. The complete recipe can be found here.
Honey Bee Martini
