One of the best parts of every New Year is the exciting new resolutions that are made - some are followed through and some are not! If one of your New Year resolutions 2022 is reaching certain wellness goals - first we would like to wish you the best for that! However, it is always difficult to maintain wellness goals when you have to attend gatherings and hang out with friends. Lots of junk food and a constant flow of drinks isn’t it? You might end up finding a way to avoid junk food or find healthier alternatives, but sometimes you might end up wondering how you can do the same with alcoholic drinks. If you are fretting about how you can balance these things and also party while making sure you are staying healthy and meeting your wellness goals, then we might have a cocktail or two to meet your needs. Let’s take a look at them -
Pomegranate Martini - What’s better than giving a delicious, healthy and fruity twist to the quintessential martini? Add unsweetened pomegranate juice and soda to Vodka (and choose a garnish of your choice - lemon slice, orange slice or pomegranates) This can prove to be quite a crowd favorite if mixed and measured right.
Mojito - You will be pleased to know that one of the more popular cocktails - Mojitos also come under the category of one of the healthier drinks that can help you meet your wellness goals. Add some muddled mint leaves, soda and Lime juice to Rum and you have a delicious, healthy cocktail good to go.
Whisky Ginger - This is a simple cocktail that sure to wow you with the intricacies of its tastes. All you have to do is add Whisky to glass and follow it with ginger beer, lime juice and a bit of ginger juice (if you fancy some) and voila! A healthy cocktail is ready to go!
Long Island Iced Tea (Healthy version) - This is one of the most popular drinks in the world - made with equal parts of rum, vodka, tequila and gin. The recipe is fairly simple but the number of ingredients might be slightly more. After mixing equal parts of the 4 kinds of alcohol, you add triple sec, lots of ginger ale and lime to balance out the taste.
Gimlet - The key to having delicious drinks that are also healthy is not adding pre-bought or processed fruit juices. These juices are often artificially sweetened which means they also contain more calories and might therefore hinder your wellness goals. On this note, Gimlet is a great cocktail you can make by adding lime juice to gin to create a delicious concoction. You can add unsweetened syrup to the mix to make it more interesting.
