Holiday Cocktail Tips

As the Madonna song states, Holiday...Celebrate...if we took a holiday, took time to celebrate, just one day out of life, it would be, it would be so nice!  

It's holiday party time and as the song above states, it's "just one day out of life" so don't deprive yourself by restricting food and drink consumption or you may end up falling off the "sleigh" and end up fitting into that Santa suit by the 25th.  Caution, note I said party not parties so your free pass doesn't last the entire holiday season.

One of our favorite parts of a holiday party is enjoying a festive cocktail!  While alcohol can lead to poor eating choices and leave you feeling as green as the grinch the next day, it can still be enjoyed...in moderation of course.  Here are some tips to help you have a good time without breaking the caloric bank:
  • Use 1% milk in your egg nog to cut the calories and fat in half
  • Don't drink white russians...they have around 400 calories per serving!
  • Opt for lower calorie cocktails of champagne or wine
  • Dilute your mixed drink with sparkling water or club soda and avoid sugary mixers
  • Make sure you drink plenty of water
Here is a festive drink recipe I will be making for a holiday party tonight:

Champagne (brand of your choice)
add cranberry juice or light juice cocktail
add fruit of your choice

This drink is similar to a mimosa only a more festive red for the holidays!
