3 New Year's Eve Low Calorie Cocktail (and Mocktail) Recipes Featuring Bai
I'm almost embarrassed to admit this, but I have only just recently found "my drink". You know, that drink that you order every time your go out with your friends. At Mexican food restaurants I order a skinny margarita, but beyond that, I had no idea what to get! But, at the age of 31, I have finally figured it out. Want to know what they are?
My current drinks of choice are the Moscow Mule and Pimm's Cup. Both have a lemon-lime and ginger beer component, but the mule has vodka in it while the Pimm's cup has gin. I like them because they're both light a refreshing and don't make you feel full.
But after some thought, I wondered why is it always a lemon-lime flavor profile? Why not try a different citrus - like perhaps orange? And thus we have our first low calorie drink.
The Clementine Mule
- 3 oz Bai Costa Rica Clementine
- 1/2 oz Orange Juice
- 1 oz Vodka
- 2 oz Ginger Beer
- Mint (for garnish)
Now we're going to take it waaay back - like college days and going out dancing and reinventing that sugary gross mess - the Malibu & pineapple.
- 3 oz Pineapple Juice
- 3 oz Bai Coconut
- 1/2 lime juice
- Splash of soda
Combine the ingredients and serve over ice for a tasty, low-calorie treat. If you absolutely have to have alcohol, add 2 oz white rum to your drink.
This last drink it dedicated to all of you who might drink a little too much this evening and not feel so great tomorrow. This fizzy antioxidant tea is sure to cure what ails you!
Good Morning, Ginger!
- 3 oz Bai Tanzania Lemonade Tea
- 2 oz Ginger Beer (or Ginger Ale)
- garnish with mint if you're feeling fancy
Combine the ingredients in a glass and serve over ice.
Ever since I tried Bai drinks last year, I've loved them. They have 10 calories per bottle, no artificial sweetener, and no funky aftertaste. They also have Bai Bubbles that is a great substitute to sodas, if you're someone who absolutely needs to have that soda burn in your life.
