  1. 7 Light, Refreshing Summer Cocktails For 150 Calories or Less

    150 Calories or Less Cocktails

    Hello, summer evenings! That warm weather makes for the perfect time of year to kick back on the patio with a good book, loved ones, a healthy meal and, in moderation, a cocktail!

    But here’s the thing: Not all cocktails are created equal.

    Most are laden with sugar and calories and, when consumed too frequently, may add inches to your waistline or derail your diet.

    Thankfully, there are plenty of summer-friendly options out there that can be enjoyed and still fit into your calorie budget.

    With that in mind, we rounded up 7 light, refreshing summer cocktails that have 150 calories or less to refresh and relax you on a hot summer evening!
