Cocktails are often enjoyed during the holidays and are a great way to spend time with your loved ones at parties. However, you need to be really careful about what they use as mixers, because wine, fruit juice, and anything dairy-based can be a lot more fattening than you might think. Try out some of these cocktails that cut back on the calories but are still very delicious.

Christmas Sangria

If you want a sangria, you don’t have to skip it just by making a few tweaks. Sangria usually consists of wine and juice, but usually contains quite a bit of sugar as well. However, you really don’t need the added sugar. All you have to do is combine some red wine with juice that doesn’t have any added sugar to it, then add some berries to the glass. You will get plenty of flavor from the cranberries or other berries you decide to use, along with some added sweetness.
