I need ideas for low-no calorie alcoholic drinks... We have our Girls' Night Out tomorrow night and I'm definately going to need some help!

Thank you!

Well since I drink every weekend and wasn't willing to give that up for my weight loss. I stuck with vodka waters, add some crystal light ! some people can just drink vodka water with a lime or lemon but I think the crystal light tastes better. Best part about vodka is that its so strong you can have less of them and still be loaded lol! Just watch the food, booze tends to make u forget ur on a diet!

This won't work for your Girl's Night, but keep it in mind if you want to have a couple cocktails at home. And FYI - I think they are only available at Bed, Bath and Beyond or online. I had the Cosmo one - so yummy!!

I used to drink a ton of beer but then I switched to Rum (just the cheap, well stuff) and Diet soda. It definitely contributed to cutting out calories.

Good luck! drinker

I like to drink clear rum with coke zero or diet coke if they dont have coke zero. I'm good after just a few and it's only around 60-70 calories each! Mmmm.

check out Calorieking.com - you can enter in different drinks and it will let you know pretty much what the calories are.

I believe white wine sprizters have the fewest calories..I also do Vodka Soda's with Lemon.

good luck!

OMG tynkaluk, I'm loving the Vodka/Water/Crystal Light idea! I've had just a plain Vodka/Water with Lime and BLAH!!!

I'm going to have to try that! :)

Thanks for all the great ideas!

vodka has about 80 -100 cals for a shot.. you can buy the 50% smirnoff in the states to get drunker faster lol... I have been doing this for years... so you will end up needing less drinks. If you live in the states also you can buy diet cherry pepsi.. with vodka it is sooo yummy... I make trips over there just to stock up on it. But the crystal lite is easier to bring with you if you are at a bar or restaurant.

I drank every sat while i was losing my 40 lbs. And most of those nights I ate a lot also. the reason I didnt' gain is that monday until that sat night I ate super healthy and worked out. On the saturday I would do my hardest / longest workouts so if I drank 1000 calories of vodka I would have already burned it off. And i would dance my butt off at the bar buring off the pizza i would eat after lol... The trick is to not let sunday hangover days be another cheat day.. pick one night and make it a good one!

I love love love Three Olives Cherry vodka and club soda...tastes like watered down Hawaiian Punch - and no added sugars so about 65 calories a drink.

i've recently stumbled upon a good one... woody's 99, not bad for a cooler, available in orange and raspberry, tastes like regular coolers, and like the name says, 99 calories...

I just bought sugar free margarita mix at BevMo and I often do sugar free Rockstar and vodka. Diet soda and any shot will work. Diet ginger ale and vanilla vodka is really good.

Margarita

6 oz. Sprite Zero
1 1/2 oz. tequila
Crystal Light lemonade mix
splash of fresh lime juice
ice, crushed or cubes


Blend all ingredients together. Serve with a slice of lime and a touch of salt on the rim of the glass.

I make these on the rocks, too. Oddly tastes like a margarita but without all the added calories of the margarita mix.

Tequila....plain...the good stuff...forget the mixer. :-)...except I just checked 69 calories for ONE SHOT!...bummer
