It's almost Halloween! I love all holidays and especially love a holiday that means I can dress up like something gross. Yes, I said gross. Slutty isn’t sassy…it’s desperate. Celebrating this coming weekend with cocktails can almost do as much damage has having a glass of calorie packed egg nog at Christmas. With so many people consuming mixed drinks that don’t normally drink at all even the well meaning calorie counter can drink too many empty calories.
If you love those scary Halloween drinks remember that they often have many different types of liquor, which means lots of calories. To keep you fitting into your Zombie Bride costume here are some fun options.
Chai tea isn’t scary but the aroma and taste are 100% autumn. Use a brewed chai tea (from teabags) without added sugar and cream, and you'll add zero calories to the vodka, which has just 80 calories an ounce on its own.
Mimosa is an awesome cocktail and it’s only 140 calories. It’s not just for brunch you know, the orange color makes it festive for Halloween, and the champagne makes it a classy prop for a sophisticated costume.
This drink is only 100 calories! YES!! Plus it’s a alluring black color makes it a perfect Halloween drink.
Because it’s blood colored you can stay festive but only consume about 30 calories per ounce.
Keep your drinks simple. The more ingredients, the higher the calorie count usually is. One shot of liquor with a zero-calorie mixer is always a good idea: whiskey and diet soda, scotch and club soda, etc. Remember to drink water between your cocktails to ensure you stay hydrated.
Be responsible, spooky, safe and always sassy!
