Because technically vodka is a salad.
LOW CALORIE HOLIDAY VODKA COCKTAILS
A girl seriously needs one or three low calorie holiday vodka cocktails to get her through the next few weeks. The struggle of trying to keep your weight in check during the holidays is real, AF. Especially when there are literally pumpkin spiced temptations, like… everywhere. Luckily, some skinny lush took the time to omit the sugar, and re-create drink recipes that are still tasty, but semi healthy. Here are 7 low calorie holiday vodka cocktails you, and your waistline can actually be thankful for.
With only three ingredients in this vodka based drink, you can either play DIY bartender and make it at home, or flirt with one while sipping (or chugging) it at the bar. Either way, you can drink your cares away without all the guilt. Get the recipe here.
This might be one of the low calorie holiday vodka cocktails but it’s also strong AF! Your waistline might be safe, but you’re definitely risking a blackout if you drink too many of these babies. Still, we encourage you to go for it. And add extra olives. You deserve it girl. Get the recipe here.
Yasss! It’s the best day ever when you learn that a fave drink, is actually one of the low calorie holiday vodka cocktails! Use natural, tart cranberry juice over the artificial, sugary impostors to spare your hips and thighs. Plan on pluralizing your intake, because this yummi-ness is only 150 calories. Channel your inner gangsta and order not only one, but two. Get the recipe here.
VODKA CRANBERRY SHRUB
So, apparently a shrub drink is a real thing, and there are different flavors. Who knew? This lil cutie is known as one of the low calorie holiday vodka cocktails that replaces cranberry juice with ACV. Everyone knows how apple cider vinegar is the cure all for life, and is helpful for eliminating fat. So technically, you should be having a vodka shrub daily to control your weight. Hey, we support it. Get your shrub on. Get the recipe here.
We might be calling bullshit on the Bullshot simply because the ingredients sound nasty AF. Supposedly, a spin off of the Bloody Mary, except without all of the “bloody”. Swapping out tomato juice for vitamin and collagen induced beef stock, this drink is sounding more like a detox soup than a cocktail. If you can handle the flavor though, you’ll be able to reap both the anti-aging effects from the broth, and keep the calories low. Get the recipe here. Ewe.
Will the real Bloody Mary please stand up! Because the Bullshot is suspect. I mean the tomato juice in this drink is chalk full of healthy vitamins. Celery is super low fat, while the Tabasco and Horseradish help to open your sinuses. Let’s not forget that this is not only one of the low calorie holiday vodka cocktails, but the go to hangover remedy! So many guiltless wins. Grab the recipe here.
So, if singer Phil Collins were a flavor, he’d be this cucumber vodka/chartreuse and lime juice mixture. He’d also be a knock off of the original drink; the Tom Collins. Not really sure who the original guy is but, Phil did a song with Tupac, and Mike Tyson punched the shit out of Allen in The Hangover, to the same song. So, technically, he has our vote. No idea what that has to do with this drink being low cal, but… we can feel it coming in the air tonight, oh lord, and that’s all that really matters. Get the recipe here.
With all 7 of these low calorie holiday vodka cocktails, you should have no trouble keeping your waistline slim. These are all great recipes to learn how to make for your friends also looking to go easy on the calories. Love that the healthy variations, still keep the drinks strong, (super important) and delicious. You might even make one or two for your boo and crew during game night. Sounds fun, especially if you sprinkle Phil Collins hits throughout your playlist.
