Positive lifestyle changes can be made anytime inspiration strikes, but the new year is always a good time for a clean slate, particularly following a high-calorie, party-packed holiday season. If you’re looking to get healthier this year, chances are you’re prepping yourself to say goodbye to alcoholic beverages, at least temporarily. But don’t throw your glass out just yet. While drinking alcohol may not be the healthiest past-time, it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. Not all cocktails are created equal! We’ve gathered a few of our favourite lower-calorie cocktail options that taste great without a ton of added sugar or juices, so you can get (or stay) fit without giving up your Pusser’s.
