Let’s be honest, while we all love going out to enjoy a cocktail, or three, one of the only downsides of going out for drinks is that they aren’t always healthy. If you are trying to diet or stay on-top of your calories, then cocktails may not always be of help. Certain drinks are filled with carbs and sugars and while they may taste delicious, they aren’t always great for that waistline. Here at CliQue Bar and Lounge, we want you to have your cake (or your cocktail) and eat it too, and be able to enjoy delicious drinks without the guilt.
This is why we have detailed a list of the healthiest cocktails we offer and how these delicious cocktails should be your new go-to whenever you are on a diet but still want to have a little fun with your cocktails.
The Healthy Staples
There are a few classic cocktails that come to mind when it comes to healthy, low-calorie or low-carb drinks. These staples have always been great options for those who are looking to manage their carb and calorie intake whenever they are going out to eat. Vodka and soda is one of the most classic options. Vodka, and other clear spirits are made with less sugar and fewer calories than dark liquors. Pairing a clear spirit like vodka with a light mixer such as soda water makes this cocktail a guilt-free one to sip all night long.
Another great option for those who like clear spirits is a dry gin martini. Gin does not have any carbs in it and when you mix it with a dry martini, that has very little vermouth in it, it can be a great, low-calorie and low-carb cocktail.
Fresh-Pressed Juice Drinks
Here at CliQue Bar and Lounge, we don’t only have drinks that are void of calories, we have cocktails that are filled with things that are good for you as well. Instead of using sugary, processed drinks in many of our cocktails, we have fresh-pressed, vitamin-filled cocktails that aren’t just delicious, but great for those who may be on a diet.
Our Green Machine cocktail is one great place to start. It starts with your choice of 50 Bleu Vodka or Bombay Sapphire East Gin (two low-carb, low-calorie spirit options). Then we add fresh-pressed cucumber, celery, spinach and lemon.
With our Vita Mixin’ drink is another cocktail that is filled with fresh-pressed juices that will have you feeling like you just stepped out of a juice bar, not a cocktail bar. This drink is made with Avion Silver Tequila or Botran Reserva Rum, then features carrot, orange, lemon and ginger, all fresh-pressed into one delicious concoction.
See? We bet we have your mouths watering already! Come by the best Las Vegas Lounge, CliQue Bar and Lounge to try these delicious drinks out for yourself!
