The Healthy Alcoholic Drinks to Serve at Your Next Pool Party

During the summer, we all want some sun on our skin and ice in our drinks. Nothing screams summer like chilling by the pool with tanning oil in hand and an iced cocktail in the other! Speaking of said cocktail…we’re all constantly calorie counting, try as we might it’s hard to resist. With bikini bods in mind, we try to watch what we’re eating where we can during the summer. Well, there’s one whopping calorie intake that we hardly pay attention to: cocktails! Healthy alcoholic drinks are rare to find, until now. We’ve put together five cocktails that are guaranteed to keep your thirst quenched and your waist cinched all summer!
