Sip away the rest of the summer with tasty cocktails that won’t derail your diet.

Though the temptation to sit back and relax with a cold drink during the summertime runs higher than any other time of the year, alcoholic drinks can be majorly sneaky when it comes to our diets. Sometimes we forget to register our drinks with our calorie count, or just don’t keep track of exactly how many we’re consuming. Regardless of how it happens, drinking is one of the easiest ways to sabotage your healthy diet.

That’s not to say that you don’t deserve to unwind with a fruity beverage once in a while! Our friends at Skinnygirl have created the perfect solution— cocktails that use low calorie alcohol so that you don’t destroy your health goals. We already know how to eat healthy at a BBQ—now we’ve got some perfect drink options to complete your next summer soiree!
