Fall Inspired Cocktails- Lower Calories

With the fall season in full swing, your party planning for Halloween, and even Thanksgiving, might be put in motion. When you decide what food you are going to serve, you might want to consider your guests going home with a few extra pounds. Luckily, there are healthy cocktails that you can pair with your meals that will not make you or your party goers feel guilty. With the help of womenshealthmag.com, presented are three drink options that are less than 200 calories and can be made without having to go look for fancy, low calorie claiming brands that you have never heard of before.

Apple Cider Shandy, made with a light lager beer, like Samuel Adams Light, apple cider, and lemon juice, is a refreshing fall-inspired drink that will impress your guest. One might think that the easier route to go with this drink would be to buy a hard apple cider, such as Angry Orchard. However, by opting out of taking the time to make the Shandy, you risk serving your guests beer that can be filled with calories due to artificial flavoring. By making this cocktail, you are using natural ingredients and a light beer, cutting the calories down to only 170.

A Carrot-Ginger Martini consists of fresh ginger, agave nectar—which you can probably replace with honey if you are unsure of agave, vodka, and carrot juice. This cocktail evokes fall with its dark orange color. Although it has a warming tone, this martini has a bite to it because of the ginger. Classic martinis are served with olives, making them salty. With the pureness of the ginger, your guests will enjoy this seasonal twist on a classic drink that is also 170 calories.

For a toasty drink as the party goes further into the evening, a Spiked Vanilla Chai Froth is the perfect ending to a great holiday party. Made with almond milk, pure vanilla extract, dark rum, agave nectar and cinnamon, it is heated gently in a saucepan and whisked until frothy. This drink is a sweet treat, but because its ingredients are natural, you will not feel bad about indulging. You do not run the risk of using artificial sugar that packs on the calories. Instead, you and your guests get to relax at the end of the night with this warm, 200 calorie drink adult beverage.
