3 Cocktails You Can Enjoy Even When You're on a Diet, Honolulu, Hawaii

One of the unfortunate facts about adult beverages is their calorie content. However, if you choose your cocktails wisely, you can enjoy drinking responsibly without the weight gain. Hula's Bar & Lei Stand, a well known bar and live music venue in Honolulu, HI, discusses some delicious cocktails you can enjoy even when you're on a diet. This should help you enjoy your time on Oahu to the fullest without worrying about packing on pounds.

3 Cocktails You Can Enjoy Even When Dieting

1. Gin & Tonic

A shot, about 25 ml, of gin has only 59 calories. Mix that with tonic and a squirt of lime, and the whole drink comes in at only 120 calories. Or stick to a zero-calorie mixer, such as Diet Squirt or Sprite Zero, and the drink remains below 60 calories. Compare that to a pint of ale, which contains approximately 250 calories.

2. Vodka & Soda

One of the reasons alcoholic drinks are so fattening is the sugar content of their mixers. Soda, or sparkling water, has no sugar and zero carbs, so it is an ideal low-cal solution. A fluid ounce of vodka contains only 64 calories, while soda water is calorie free.

Champagne, or sparkling wine, is a delightful, fizzy cocktail ideal for celebrations. A single glass, about 4 ounces, provides the same heart and vascular benefits as a glass of red wine and contains only 95 calories, so it won't do much damage to your diet plan.

Something to remember when drinking while on a diet is that alcohol tends to stimulate your appetite. As long as you don’t overeat after having a cocktail or two, you should be able to keep the pounds off and still have a good time.
