Skinnygirl Sparklers

Skinnygirl Sparklers Giveaway | The Halfway HomemakerThe holidays are a time for fun, food, and drinks! When I was pregnant, the holidays were miserable for me, because I couldn’t drink – especially when everyone around me was drinking. There was always some alternative, but nothing was ever festive enough to add to the fun of the party. Until now.

I always loved to have champagne at Christmas and New Years. The bubbles just seemed to speak of the fun and expectations of the new year. The apple cider always reminded me of the juice they served at my preschool – not a good taste memory. Alcohol is also high in calories. Especially when you add mixers. When you are trying to lose (or keep off lost) weight, a fruity drink or cosmo doesn’t help your waistline.

Enter – Skinnygirl Sparklers. This is the new line from Skinnygirl that offers non-alcoholic refreshing sparkling beverages. They are only 5 calories per serving, and taste great. There are four flavors to choose from – Pink Grapefruit, Pineapple Coconut, Tangerine Mango, and Strawberry Lemonade.

Personally, I feel like as long as I have a fun drink in my hand, I am not missing alcohol as much. And they are so much healthier than plain juice – juice has so many calories! They contain 5% juice, but also 6 essential vitamins, super fruit extracts, and green tea polyphenals. Not only will you not have a nasty hangover, but you will also be replenishing your body. What a great trade-off for designated drivers!

Now, if you are like me (and definitely not pregnant this holiday season) you would wonder if they were great mixers. I mean, they are low-calorie, sparkling, and yummy! So I tried out a few mixed drinks, and they are amazing. And because they have so much flavor on their own, I didn’t feel the need to make the drinks strong. Another win, because I am consuming less alcohol – another healthy choice.

Here are my favorite cocktails for the four flavors:
