Tips for a Healthier Happy Hour


It’s February, so if you fit into the 99.9% of the population that over-indulged over the holidays then it is likely you are counting calories and scaling back on your alcohol intake this month. Truthfully, you don’t have to skip happy-hour to stick to your resolution for a healthier 2013.  There are plenty of tips and tricks for cocktailing without overloading on calories, here are a few of them:

Wine Drinkers:  Stick with White

As a general rule dry whites will have fewer calories than any other wines. Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Chablis are 3 whites that you can usually count on to be completely dry. If you like Champgane you are in luck, a 4oz glass is only 85 calories.

If you absolutely must have red wine, avoid wines that tend to have residual sugar like California Zinfandel and anything from South Eastern Australia. Try something from Tuscany or Bordeaux!

Beer Drinkers: Switch to Light

The best way to cut calories is simply to switch to light beer. Bud Light, Bud Light Lime and Coors Light are all great options available in most restaurants. Tip- Budweiser products are also gluten free! If you prefer something dark and wintery a can of Guinness is still under 150 calories.                                                    

Cocktail Drinkers: Skip the mixer

The juices, syrups and pop in cocktails account for a lot of the calories in these drinks. Skip the mixer and just order your favourite spirit with soda water. Infused vodkas are perfect because they are not sweetened, but infused with flavour. If you can’t part without some flavour try soda with a splash of cranberry juice. Gin and Tonic is also a  great low-calorie cocktail, with only 103 calories per drink.

Happy happy-hour to you!

Jessica.

You may have always had a dream of being an entrepreneur and starting your own business. If you have been afraid to take the plunge because of the high cost of starting a business, now may be the time for you to give it a go. The Internet has made it easier for more people to be their own boss. Many online businesses can begin with little to no overhead. Thanks...............

The use of wine in religious ceremonies is common to many cultures and regions. Libations often included wine, and the religious mysteries of Dionysus used wine as a sacramental entheogen to induce a mind-altering state.

The wine labels suggest opening the bottle and letting the wine breathe for a couple of hours before serving, while others recommend drinking it immediately. Decanting is a controversial subject among wine enthusiasts.

It is a very sad thing for me as I have never tasted the white wine. In many of the articles and write ups I have read about the most unusual flavor of white wine . I wish if I could make it at home. Please share any such details if available,
