7 Low Cal SD Cocks

Health

Published on January 5th, 2013


Looking for a good low-cal cocktail in SD? Try SaltBox, they have a great low-cal cocktail menu that features such drinks as Aperol Spritz (aperol, lemon, white wine, club soda), Blushing Fizz (cointreau, hendrick’s g in, strawberries, cucumber, mint, club soda) and Blood Orange Vino-jito (blood orange juice, cointreau, plymouth gin, white wine, club soda). Saltbox is located at 1047 Fifth Avenue, San Diego, California.

These tips will make your cocktails choices, healthier choices –

-Work the corner – Go to your favorite corner natural grocer and pick up your mixers there. Try to stick with organic but never compromise on cutting out high fructose corn syrup.

-We like it sweet – Agave is a great sweetener/simple syrup to add to any drink that calls for it and most that don’t.

-Don’t fake it -Use real fruit instead artificial flavoring that are loaded with extra sugar and extra calories.

-Blondes – Light alcohol is easier on the next morning blues than dark.

Size matters — especially when it comes to consuming liquid calories. That’s why we kept all our drinks right around the 8-ounce mark.
