Step away from the eggnog! Aside from the obvious issues that could arise from guzzling down a raw egg/heavy cream based drink … each cup is nearly 20 whopping grams of fat. But fear not holiday party girls, all festive cocktails don't have to be diet disasters. You can hop your way through soiree season without busting out of that little black dress thanks to these diet-friendly holiday cocktails – all 150 calories or less!
Before we start talking booze, remember to stay hydrated with good old-fashioned water or club soda in between the hard stuff. You'll be thankful the next morning when you can actually lift your head off your pillow.
At only 90 calories a glass … you can sip sweet bubbly without the guilt. Plus, bartenders will thank you for not making them muddle, mix, shake or blend.
This drink takes a little more effort, but adds a refreshing vibe to any holiday party.
