25 Delicious Cocktail Recipes So You Can Drink Healthier This Summer

By

Summer and drinking sort of go hand-in-hand.

Whether you're getting wavy at the beach, drinking beer at a baseball game or executing the perfect keg stand at a backyard barbecue, there's booze basically everywhere you go.

There's just one little problem with all those drinks you've been sucking down (no, I'm not talking about your recurring blackouts).

Aside from being a liquid form of bad decisions, your beloved booze is actually packed with tons of sneaky calories and sugar.

Yep, I know. As a girl who likes to get lit every now and then, I felt super betrayed when I found out my BFF, vodka, was actually trying to sabotage my beach bod.

Seriously, I thought we were friends.

Before you hop on the wagon and settle for drinking boring sh*t that doesn't get you wasted, I have some good news.

There are actually some cocktails out there that you can sip without saying "goodbye" to your skinny jeans.

So, in order to help you get buzzed in a better way, we set out to find healthier versions of your favorite cocktails that taste just as good as those daiquiris you've been downing.

Just remember, like all things in life, moderation is still key.
