Low Cal Cocktails

Mango and Soda

With New Year”s resolutions in full swing, were thinking about low calorie cocktails at The Distillery. A well-designed cocktail can be extremely high in flavor but equally low in calories.  We are always reminded not to “drink our calories” and here are a few cocktail recipes that allow us to indulge in creative and delicious beverages, without feeling guilty about it.

Diet Gin and Tonic – approximately 180 calories

1 ½ OZ Aviation American Gin

¼  OZ Freshly pressed lime juice

4 OZ Light tonic water

 In a collins glass, combine all spirits and mixers. Stir for 2 seconds. Fill with ice. Garnish with a lime wedge.

Mango and Soda – approximately 160 calories

1 ½ OZ Aviation American Gin

½ OZ Freshly pressed lime juice

3 OZ Soda water

In a collins glass, combine all spirits and mixers. Stir for 2 seconds. Fill with ice. Garnish with a lime wedge.

*To make light agave syrup, combine equal parts light agave syrup with water. Stir until well combined.

 

Removing the sugar is an easy way to remove calories, however you must be sure the cocktail is still balanced and not overly bitter.
