The party season is upon us… so why not stock up on some healthier tipples to balance out that office mini bar. But remember no matter how skinny your drink be mindful of the serving size and watch how quickly you knock it back. Here’s our top picks for the healthier hedonist surviving the Christmas party season…
If you like a Gin & Tonic… but want to avoid alcohol altogether, try Seedlip, the next best thing to a gin & tonic, without the gin. The brand seeks to solve the ‘what to drink when you’re not drinking’ dilemma…
If you like Bubbles… try the festive favourite that sold out in Selfridges in just 3 days! The brainchild of former BBC broadcaster Amanda Thomson (raised a vegetarian on a no-sugar diet) Skinny Prosecco contains half the sugar of normal prosecco with only 67 calories per glass.
If you like Wine… sign up to an organic, biodynamic, vegan and natural wine subscription with Biowine that’s free from harmful chemicals and produced by ethical, dedicated wine-makers in small batches.
If you like Beer… try Bitburger Drive Alcohol-Free. Alcohol is carefully removed, but only once the beer has fully matured locking in taste while reducing the calories. The tipple of choice for the German National Football Team!
If you like Vodka… it’s got to be the classic Skinny Bitch aka vodka, lime and soda. Not the most exciting, but a tried and tested classic falling under 100 calories. Ask for a fresh lime wedge instead of cordial and choose a good, clean quadruple distilled vodka free from sugar or glycerin like Belvedere.
If you like Pina Coladas… try a ‘Pina Kale-Ada’ – the only way to consume Kale in our opinion. Nutri-Bullets at the ready? 35 ml Belvedere Vodka, 75 ml pressed Pineapple Juice, 5 ml Cold Pressed Kale Juice. 10 ml Lemon Juice. 35 ml Coconut Water. 5 Fresh Basil Leaves. Shake, strain and serve on the rocks.
