Guilt-free skinny cocktails: 6-10

20 January 2014

We’re back for the second instalment of our fabulously low-calorie cocktails for January. Plus our favourite recipe so you can keep the cocktail calories down at home too.

Moscow Lassi available at The Last, Chancery Lane

Warm your bones this January the Russian way with a healthy dose of vodka, combined with mango and apple to liven things up. Mixed with natural yoghurt, it’s creamy, fruity and has minimal calories. This Lassi is right up our street!

Berry Acai Sour available at The Gable, Moorgate

We’ve chosen to use Absolut’s super food infused vodka which has extracts of acai berry to ensure a nutritious cocktail like no other. Combined with even more super foods including blueberries and pineapple this cocktail gives you even more reason to drink this January.  

Pomegranate Fizz available at Grace, Piccadilly

Bubbles brighten up everything and a fizzy cocktail is one commandment we couldn’t live without. Vodka mixed with pomegranate juice, agave syrup, and lemon, served with a generous wedge of pomegranate. This is a cocktail and one of your 5-a-day in one #winning.

Skinny Pomegranate Mojito available Tiger Tiger, Haymarket

The Mojito becomes mighty healthy. The classic combination of mint, rum and lime with an additional pomegranate twist is great for any Mojito fan who fancies a change. Not only that, by swapping sugar with agave syrup its half the calories!

Fresh Start available at Mansion House, Glasgow

Admittedly this one is a bit far away, but if you find yourself in the grand City of Glasgow this January, why not pop into Mansion House for a fresh start. A Fresh Start cocktail that is! Should you not be so lucky though, you can make it at home instead, and here's how:


25ml Ketel One Vodka

10ml lime juice

50ml passion fruit puree

15ml agave nectar

Half a passion fruit to serve

Fill tall glass with ice cubes. Shake all the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker, pour over ice. Serve with half a passion fruit placed on top. It's the perfect sweet & sour combination and a great way to cheers to a fresh start - wherever you are!
