Skinny cocktails. I like to find a reason to celebrate everything! 

Life is short and should be enjoyed! Chips, guacamole, margaritas and dancing? Sign Me Up!

Cinco De Mayo Drinks

This year Cinco de Mayo is on a Tuesday which means Taco Tuesday just got a little better (as if it could be any better!). I used to go crazy and eat baskets (yep…that’s plural) of chips and down one or four margs…but those days are in the past! Throughout my transformation I learned many things, one of which was how terrible margaritas and chips are for your body. Loaded with sugar and empty calories. You know I’m all about balance, but making a healthy swap is easier than you think. Instead of going out this year, invite over your bestie and try my healthier versions of these traditional drinks! Get ready to ditch the margs for good and fall in love with my LSF skinny Cinco de Mayo drinks!

Ingredients:

La Paloma

A Paloma is a local favorite in Mexico on a hot day. It’s traditionally made with grapefruit soda, but I am putting a fresh spin on it. My version cuts calories and reduces the sugar. Plus, by using fresh grapefruit juice you get the added benefits of vitamin C and potassium along with tons of other vitamins and minerals.

2 ounces Blanco Tequila

6 ounces Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice

½ ounce Lime juice

¼ – ½ c Sparkling mineral water

Paloma

Original Paloma:                             LSF Version:

240 calories, 27 sugar                      190 calories, 16g sugar

 

Tequila Lime Spritzer

love margaritas, but they can ruin all the hard work you put in at the gym far too quickly. Did you know that a standard margarita has about 600 calories? YIKES! It’s just not worth it. This spritzer is a perfect way to get the flavor you love without all the extra stuff.

2 ounces Tequila

¼ c Fresh squeezed lime juice

1 Tbs Raw Honey

Fill remaining glass with Sparkling mineral water

**If you like a little spice, muddle a teaspoon of jalapeno, chopped, into your drink!

Lime Spritzer

 Original Margarita:                        LSF Version:

600 calories, >30g sugar                  160 calories, 16g sugar

 

Pomegranate Lime Mocktail

If you haven’t quite hit 21, or you’re on one of those “I’m never drinking again” kicks, this is the drink for you. It’s a perfect balance of sweet and tart and packed full of antioxidants!

1 Tbs Fresh squeezed lime juice

¼ c Pomegranate juice (100% no sugar added)

Fill remaining glass with Sparkling mineral water

**Option to add 2oz. tequila**

Pomegranate LIme Mocktail
