I’ve posted quite a few yummy holiday cocktail recipes for you here at She Knows Parties over the last few weeks. Tonight I have some healthier alternatives for your Christmas and New Year celebrations from Hint.
Most of the calories and sugar in your cocktails are in the mixes and the soda you use to make them. Instead of the usual spritzer, juice or soda, substitute your mixer with a “Hint” of Pomegranate-Tangerine or Mango-Grapefruit flavored water.
Add Hint as a mixer to your favorite vodka or rum, it’s the perfect alternative for a healthy holiday drink. It has no carbs, calories, sugar or sodium. It still gives your cocktail or holiday mixers flavor without adding on extra calories, which we all know adds on those extra pounds we’ll all be trying to lose in January!
Leave out the alcohol for even fewer calories and delicious family and kid friendly party drinks that are lower in calories than the normal party punch.
Here are a couple recipes to get you started.
Red and Green Pomegranate Punch
- 2 bottles Pomegranate-Tangerine Hint
- 1/2 cup sugar substitute (like Splenda)
- 1 1/2 cup Vincent Van Gough Vodka Pomegranate
- 1 splash of lime
- 1 lemon thinly sliced
- Pomegranate seeds
- Fresh mint leaves
Shake together with ice, garnish with the fresh mint leaves, lemon and pomegranate seeds on top.
Tropical Holiday Getaway
- 2 oz Mango Grapefruit Hint
- 1 1/2 oz 3-Olives mango vodka
- Splash of lime juice
- Crushed pineapple wedge
- 1 piece of mango for garnish
Shake together with ice and garnish with mango slice.
As always remind your friends and guests to drink responsibly, even during the holiday season.
