Shake and stir your way to a healthier lifestyle
With 2020 well and truly underway, it’s not unlikely that many of those New Year’s Resolutions we promised ourselves to stick to have started to slip! One of our guilty pleasures that contributes to weight gain (unknowingly to many people) is the sugar in alcoholic beverages. Whether it be a refreshing mojito or a tasty rum and coke – some cocktails actually contain more sugar than doughnuts!
The good news? It’s still possible to have a few delicious drinks without consuming your day’s worth of calories, by making more conscious decisions when selecting spirits, mixers, and garnishes. Thanks to Australian Mangoes and Australian Blueberries, we’ve rounded up a few of the best ‘conscious cocktail’ recipes for you to try at home.
