If you must partake in some celebratory drinking, at least choose wisely…
If you are not satisfied with flashing your goodies for beads, try not to blow all of your calories on the alcohol you consume.
A few tricks:
Choose a flavored vodka, mix with club soda, add a little lime juice over ice.
White wine spritzer – top your white wine with club soda over ice.
Skinny up your margarita: 2 oz clear tequila, splash of Cointreau or Triple sec, a little lime juice over ice. Add a dash of agave nectar if you need it a little sweet.
Pina Colada Cooler:1 1/2 ounces coconut-flavored rum 3 ounces pineapple juice 4 ounces sparkling water 1 tablespoon of Coco Lopez Cream of Coconut Lite (found in the drink mixers section of many supermarkets)
Pour ingredients over ice and stir.
Those are just a few. I highly suggest checking out this cool website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/alcohol/2008/media/alcohol_calories.swf
