I have been trying to shed some pounds this summer and thought I would share one of my new favorite skinny cocktails. This Skinny Aloe Cocktail recipe is perfect for lounging by the pool or serving at a party. It’s refreshing, light and if you are watching your weight like me, you won’t feel guilty drinking it!
I just discovered a brand of aloe water that I really like and turned it into a cocktail. If you haven’t tried aloe water before, it takes just like water with sugar.
There are many who say aloe water has great health benefits, but I have also heard it can bother people who have stomach issues. I have never had any problems and really enjoy drinking it when I need something that tastes sugary, but healthy. It’s a great alternative to soda and comes in all kinds of flavors as well.
My skinny cocktail is basically just vodka and aloe water! Pretty basic, but I like to jazz it up with flavored vodka and fruit.
You can skip the vodka for a simple non-alcoholic version of this drink. Either way, it’s low in calories, crisp and cool for summer!
What You’ll Need:
- Aloe Water – (I like this organic brand)
- Citrus Vodka
- 1 Lime
- 1 Orange
Pour the Aloe Water into a glass full of ice, mix in 1-2 ounces of vodka. Slice oranges and limes. Squeeze a good amount of both into the glass, then add some slices in the glass for garnish.
If you try this, let me know what you think!
