6 Better-for-You Cocktails That Taste Delicious
Whatever the season, nothing is more relaxing than sipping a homemade cocktail. But all too often, sugary mixers plus booze can leave you feeling lackluster, drowsy, and anything but refreshed. Add in sweltering summertime temps or arid winter air and you've got yourself the perfect recipe for dehydration.
There are a few simple steps to start drinking responsibly. First, have at least one glass of water for every boozy beverage you drink. Avoid drinking on an empty stomach—keep a handful of healthy snacks nearby, or (better yet) match your drink to your dinner spread. And of course, pace yourself. According to nutrition expert Maggie Michalczyk, RD, we should also lean towards low- to no-sugar cocktails. Not only are they less likely to leave you with a migraine, but you'll sidestep the snooze-inducing blood sugar spike, too.
