This blog was created for all those cocktail-lovers out there who are giving their nutrition a second thought and want to be conscious of what they are putting in their body. These recipes are especially useful for those who are on a low carb and/or low sugar diet since many of the mixer substitutions cut out almost all carbs and sugar.
The low calorie, premixed cocktail options that are available do not offer anything close to the fresh flavor of a well-made cocktail. However, by substituting a few choice ingredients, flavorful low calorie cocktails can be made and enjoyed by anyone.
All the basic liquor nutrition facts used on this site have their sources cited, but depending on the brand and proof of the liquor used, the nutrition information will vary. The nutritional information for specific alcoholic beverages is sometimes hard to find. If I am not able to locate specific information from a source, I will note so in the recipe.
However, please be advised that at any one time, information can be inaccurate and should not be used for reassurance of any medical needs. Calories, carbohydrates, sugars, and all other values listed are NOT guaranteed. If you are following a medically restrictive diet, please consult your doctor or registered dietitian before preparing any recipe on this website for personal consumption.
I am a web and graphic designer who has mad love for cooking, baking and cocktail making. I try to follow a low carb diet for the most part and have found that drinking full-sugar anything never makes me feel very good. Over the years, I have developed tons of low sugar cocktail recipes that allow me to enjoy alcohol without the bad affects of shocking my system with more sugar than normal. Decreasing sugar also lowers calories and carbs, so this blog is a resource for those who want ideas for more health-friendly cocktail recipes.
