10 Highest and 10 Lowest – Calorie Drinks

cocktails

I am not a big fan of alcohol and alcoholic drinks in general. But regarding the fact that summer is here and everyone keeps sipping at their cocktails, a lot of my friends started asking me what is the best drink to drink, in order to not gain weight!? Any alcoholic drink is going to bump up your calorie count, but some tipples are less deadly than others! When we’re calorie counting, we soon realise that that it’s actually drinks, rather than food, that add up the most quickly! Take a look at my list of 10 highest and 10 lowest calories drinks to see what to go for.
I know its Saturday night, but try not to drink too much alcohol anyway.. :) x
