If you are worried that your vacation in Puerto Vallarta , Mexico, might mean you are going to gain a pound or 2 from enjoying fun food and cocktails. This does not need to be true. See below a great list of low cal Skinny Cocktails from the favorite tropical drinks like Margaritas and Pina Coladas to Cosmos and Bellini’s. See the below great recipes from your friends at WebMD
If you are renting a private vacation villa for your holiday the staff will be happy to use these low calorie versions of the favorite vacation cocktails. As well since Puerto Vallarta is a very walking friendly town with a small downtown with wide sidewalks and lots of galleries and cafes not to mention miles of beaches your exercise is free. If you are a golfer there are 11 golf courses and of course great water sports from swimming to windsurfing.
As any savvy drinker knows that a whole day of eating can be lost in the swirl of a cocktail, many have very high calorie counts and of course as soon as have the first sip your well made plans go out the window, willpower is gone. So check out the following great list of options to make your favorite DOC (drink of choice) in a low cal version.
Watermelon Mojito: 100 Calories
Variation for the Mojito. Instead of using sugar, use a wooden pestle or a big spoon to gently crush cubes of watermelon with fresh mint leaves. Add rum and sparkling water for a sweet mojito with half the usual calories.
Simple Margarita: 170 Calories
Skip the syrupy mixes in crazy colors and you’ll trim hundreds of calories from this Mexican cocktail. Measure out the basics: one shot of tequila, lime juice to taste, and a splash of triple sec. Shake with ice and serve. Staying within the limits of moderate drinking — one for women and up to two drinks per day for men — is another way to watch your calories and your waistline.
Skinny Piña Colada: 229 Calories
Rum that’s infused with a coconut flavor can cut about 300 calories from a piña colada. What’s out? The sugary, coconut milk mix. Measure one shot of coconut rum. Then add fresh strawberries, a splash of agave syrup, and blend with ice. You get a tall, 12-ounce tropical cocktail for about the same calories as in a handful of pretzel twists.
Shochu Cosmo: 70 Calories
Make a super-slim cosmopolitan by replacing the vodka with Shochu, a Japanese spirit with a smooth flavor. A 2-ounce serving has only about 35 calories. Add splashes of diet cranberry juice, fresh lime juice, and orange juice, and then toss in a martini shaker. This Cosmo shakes out at half the calories of a traditional cosmopolitan.
Slim Berry Daiquiri: 145 Calories
Simple, unadorned berries can help slim down a strawberry daiquiri. Start with 1 cup of no-sugar-added berries, either fresh or frozen. You get intense berry flavor for just 50 calories, compared with 255 calories in berries frozen with syrup. Add rum, ice, and sweeten the deal with 1 teaspoon of stevia, a sugar substitute. Blend into a slim and delicious frozen concoction.
Better Bellini: 120 Calories
Slim down Italy’s festive Bellini by using just 2 ounces of peach nectar, about half the usual amount. Swirl the syrupy nectar together with 4 ounces of champagne and serve in a pretty, fluted glass. Mimosa lovers can try the same trick to cut the calories: use just half of the usual orange juice.
