Enjoying the evening Liqueur cocktails while maintaining your diet goals

Have a plan before beginning the evenings cocktail hour. Decide in advance the number of cocktails you are going to drink and cut back on that number of calories during the day in anticipation.

Mix cocktails with water, club soda, diet soda, low calorie juices, artificial sweeteners or sugar-free syrups for easy calorie savings. Fruit and vegetable juices can be good choices because they are lower in calories than some other mixers. Try one of the new flavored liquors on the rocks. They are not sweetened but infused with flavors, without adding any extra calories. you may also try diluting your drink with club soda or sparkling water. If you usually drink vodka and cranberry, for example, try it with club soda, just a splash of cranberry juice, and a squeeze of lime. Garnish with a wedge of citrus or pineapple to add flavor and few calories.
