‘Diamonds are a girl’s best friend’ goes the classic saying, in lieu of that we think that cocktails must come a close second. They are with you for the good times (champagne cocktails at the Zetter Townhouse), the bad times (Bam Bam’s at Whetherspoons) and all the in-between (becoming a Pimm’s mixologist wizard every summer). The only drawback, as with most delicious activities, is that the tasty treats are chock full of hidden calories (we won’t tell you how many!).
To help us keep our uber fit bikini bodies suitable for public places this summer, our friends at Shaka Zulu have created a waist-line friendly trio of cocktails. These skinny cocktails vary in calorie content from the low 141 to lowest 81. Our favourite is the Spiced Raspberry featuring a raspberry martini infused with chilies and freshly pressed pineapple juice but let’s not forget about Low Blow made with tequila, Cointreau, fresh grapefruit, lemon and limejuice, clove syrup finished with mint and soda. Last but not least is the Slim S Crew which is a simple blend of vodka, fresh orange juice and diet lemonade.
These low-calorie cocktails are available now priced at £7.50 each.
