A few months into the new year is the time when those “healthy” resolutions tend to fall to the wayside. It can be hard to keep up a healthy lifestyle, especially as a busy college student. A big way to fall off of the resolution wagon is by drinking. Going out for drinks can be a great way to unwind and have fun, but the calories in those drinks can add up quickly. Fortunately, you can still keep up with your fitness goals while having a cocktail or two. Here is a list of six low calorie cocktails that you can enjoy without breaking your diet:

  1. Vodka Soda

This cocktail offers a refreshing taste, with only 96 calories. Soda water has zero calories, so your drink will vary in calories depending on how much vodka the bartender pours. Order one next time you go out with your girls, or make it yourself!

  1. Wine Spritzer

If you’re a wine lover who’s watching her waistline, then a wine spritzer is the way to go! Mixing any type of wine with club soda can get you a cocktail that contains about 75 calories. White wines tend to have fewer calories than red, but you can still get a low calorie spritzer with red wine if that’s your thing.

  1. Watermelon Mojito

Mojitos are minty, light, and refreshing drinks that don’t need to pack a ton of calories to be delicious. Fresh watermelon, club soda, a bit of rum, and mint leaves make up this 122-calorie drink. You could order it from the bar, but it’s so easy to make that you could even do it yourself!

  1. Gin and Tonic

If you’re already a fan of this classic drink, then you’ll love the fact that it’s only 148 calories. Adding a squirt of lemon or lime juice can add some flavor to your gin and tonic while only adding a few more calories.

  1. Bloody Mary

This drink has tomato juice in it, so it’s bound to be sort of good for you, right? A skinny Bloody Mary consists of low-sodium tomato juice, vodka, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, and Tabasco sauce and will only run you 123 calories.

  1. Watermelon Margarita

Margaritas are fruity, sweet, and tend to be calorie-heavy. If you’re keeping up with your fitness goals this year, you can swap the triple sec and simple syrup for healthier sweeteners, like Stevia. This watermelon margarita recipe has fresh watermelon, lime, and orange juice, which make it a delicious and healthy cocktail.
