Better Choice: Soda Water vs. Juice (As a Mixer)
By CANDICE GREY
Update: Aug 08, 2019
Those sugary mixers do go well with vodka’s of all types, but they do not do your blood sugar any favors! Sure, they make your drink nice and sweet but the calories that go alongside of that flavor are astronomical, and almost not worth it in the long run. Instead, you can try and mix liquor with soda water and a slice of real fruit to get that sweet kick in. Instantly your sugar count will go down, as well as your calorie count by making this simple switch up!
You might not be too excited about the switch up, as you might be concerned about losing flavor and taste. Fear not, and look below for a few delicious and waist conscious drinks to satisfy even the sweetest tooth!
- 1 Shot Vodka
