THE BEST SKINNY DRINKS


1. The Naughty Reindeer

Healthy Holiday Drink Recipes | The Naughty ReindeerWe’ll start things off here with our very own low calorie cocktail recipe!

We crafted up what we like to call “The Naughty Reindeer” for this healthy holiday drinks collab.

It’s a deliciously sweet yet subtly fizzy drink with hints of warm oranges and cinnamon spice.

Plus, how adorable does this one look?

Serve your Naughty Reindeers in a tall champagne glass to simulate the long slender faces of Santa’s real reindeer crew. 😉

This cutesy cocktail is sure to please a crowd, or just get you and your bestie in the spirit of Christmas together!

Enjoy!

 

For this recipe, you will need:Naughty Reindeer ingredients

  • 2 cinnamon sticks 
  • 1 maraschino cherry
  • juice from 2-3 blood oranges (use regular oranges with a splash of cherry juice if you don’t have blood oranges)
  • sparkling water
  • 1.5 oz vodka
  • 1-2 ice cubes

 

Directions:

Step 1

Put 1-2 ice cubes in your champagne flute, then pour 1.5 oz. chilled vodka on top.

Step 2

Add in your fresh squeezed blood orange juice (or regular orange juice with a splash of cherry juice if you don’t have blood oranges on hand). 

Healthy Holiday Drink recipesStep 3

Top your glass to the brim with sparkling water. We use the Soda Stream and ladies, let me tell you… It is a GAME CHANGER!

soda streamIf you don’t have one of these yet and you’re anything like us, meaning you practically use sparkling water in every beverage you ever make… You need to get one of these bad boy Soda Streams asap. 

We used to waste sooo much money, not to mention many plastic bottles and cans, by buying all our sparkling water from the store. What a dumb idea!!

Now we have an endless supply of the stuff, and it’s as simple as filling up a bottle then pressing down a big fat button.

Sara and I joke that it sounds like a train coming into the station which it genuinely does. You’ll see what I mean LOL!

Anyway, I had to throw this in there for anyone who doesn’t have one yet because thanks to the Soda Stream, we now have an endless supply of bubbly goodness.

And we’re staying green by avoiding making all that extra bottle waste. WIN!

Pssst… This is a wonderful gift idea this holiday, just FYI! 🙂

Step 4

Back on track here… Step 4 is simple. Just stir those ingredients together!

Step 5

This is the fun part. Garnish your glass with a cute cherry nose! I like to slice a little cut halfway through the cherry to preserve its roundness and smoothness.

It will stay on your glass easier if you cut a little sliver halfway through which makes it super easy to attach it to the glass.

Step 6

Place two cinnamon sticks around the cherry nose and position them so that they make a “triangle” shaped face frame.

Step 7

Have yourself a merry little cheers and enjoy your very own adorable, festive cocktail creation! Here’s a toast to your good health and staying fit this holiday season.

3. Skinny Strawberry Jello Shots

Skinny Jello Shots Recipe

Can anyone say J-E-L-L-Omg?!

This Skinny Strawberry Jello Shots recipe comes straight from our friend Sarah Grace at FreshFitnHealthy.com who we absolutely adore.

Typically holiday cocktails use creamy, high fat or sugar mixers, but these little guys use only low sugar, fat-free gelatin and water as the “mixer,” keeping the calories and fat WAY down!

Served in a carved out strawberry or on their own, these festive cuties make a #freshfitnhealthy tabletop addition to any holiday party.

Not only are they totally portable (hence perfect for parties), they’ve also got portion control built right in! Love!!

4. Spiced N’ Spiked Pumpkin Punch

Pumpkin Rum Punch Cocktail

You already know we are OBSESSED with any and everything pumpkin flavored, which is exactly why this Pumpkin Rum Punch made the list of best skinny holiday cocktails!

If you’re a pumpkin lover, you have to try our friend Whitney’s simple healthy recipe from To Live & Diet in L.A. 

This healthy holiday cocktail is full of antioxidant-packed pumpkin and metabolism-boosting cinnamon, and with only 90 calories a glass and 1 gram of sugar it totally falls on Santa’s “nice” list.

Made with spiced whiskey or rum, it’s a “skinny” drink that even your manly beau will love.

5. The “Brentwood” – Healthy White Russian Recipe

White Russian Recipe

So first you should probably know that our friend Kelly is Jessica Alba’s nutritionist. Um, hello?! Free recipes from J. Alb’s go to girl?

Sign us up! The Brentwood Russian by our friend Kelly at Be Well By Kelly is a new twist on an old cocktail.

An after dinner cocktail doesn’t need to full of sugar and empty calories. Created by a loving group of friends on a cold night, this low sugar alternative won’t disappoint.

Looking for even less sugar and the same flavor? Just swap out Kahlua for cold pressed coffee instead. Mmm toasty!!
