Let’s Get Drinking

Who here needs a drink? If you thought “ME!”, then I feel you. But did you know the average cocktail contains 12-68 grams of sugar? (1) Yikes! If you love a good mixed drink, but you don’t want all the sugary syrups and extra ingredients, you NEED these recipes in your life.

Not only are these clean-cocktails, but they’re actually pretty damn healthy! Today we’re making: Skinny Citrus, Strawberry Basil, and Orange Jalapeño. All three of these recipes have under 5 ingredients, and a shot (or 2) of tequila. I’m sure these would also taste great with vodka or gin!

When I first made one of these drinks, my boyfriend and I were shocked at how great these simple ingredients tasted. He looked at me and said, “This tastes like a drink I would pay $17 for at a bar!”

These drinks are low calorie, and free of any processed sugar. If you’re on a diet, or just focused on living a healthy lifestyle, these drinks are perfect for you! You can even make the bartender whip one of these up for you when you go out.

How They Work:

Let’s discuss how to make these clean-ingredient cocktails, or “mason jar margs” as I like to call them.

They are so easy. Simply throw all of the ingredients in a mason jar, add ice, put the lid on, and shake shake shake!

It’s as easy as that! I love how portable these cocktails are. You can bring them to the beach, the pool, or a party!

Let’s Get Shakin!

Time to get into these recipes! Each recipe makes about 1 cocktail. They’re very cheap to make, and super easy to double. I use this lemon juicer to juice all of the citrus fruit. If you don’t have one, just use your hands!
