LOW SUGAR COCKTAIL
Since my post's are generally fitness & beverage related. I thought I'd marry the two👰
I made this for my diabetic friend @insuleoin and also all the vodka, soda & lime mot's out there.
Do you actually 'like' & 'enjoy' what you're drinking? Or is it the sugar guilt that draws you to it.
When counting macronutrient's most people are aware of the:
Protein: 1g = 4 calories
Carbs: 1g = 4 calories
Fats: 1g = 9 calories
Not many know that 1g of alcohol contains 7 calories.
So your cheeky naggin of vodka at predrinks is 433 calories.
Don Julio Tequila Bianco 50ml
(Agavina, which is a sugar that comes from the agave plant used to produce tequila, triggers insulin production and therefore lowers blood sugar.) As much as I think the studies are 🐮💩. Tequila is claimed to be the "healthiest" spirit you can drink. (Effects of weight loss, cholesterol lowering, cleans colon, makes you feel fuller for longer) = perfect for diabetics.
Lemon Juice 25ml ( anti oxidants/anti cancer) vitamin C (immune function)
5 mint leaves ( herbs like Basil, Thyme, Rosemary, Tarragon add huge flavour without any nutritional content)
3 Raspberries ( berries contain fructose that doesn't require insulin to be metabolised and are low on the glycemic index)
Rasberry flavoured Stevia 4 drops (This is a pretty "sweet" option for people with diabetes. It's 0 calories & doesn't raise blood sugar levels)
Soda water (water..bubbles..all good)
Garnish: Raspberry chillin in a lemon hammock
Calories 99, sugar 0.25g
Disclaimer: In the grand scheme of things alcohol isn't that great for ya.
Also drinking a shit load of Tequila won't make you any healthier. But it will make you funner & everybody else more attractive.
Thanks if you made it this far.
