This sugar-free cocktail is not just low in carbs, it's also low in calories and makes the perfect refreshment for summer parties and barbecues. You can use any spirits, just make sure there is no added sugar. Gin, vodka, rum or tequila are the best options. If you use gin, add a few slices of cucumber for extra freshness.
Are you trying to lose weight?
Minimise your consumption to occasional drinks, or ideally, avoid alcohol altogether. Although there are no carbs in spirits, your body can't store alcohol as fat - it has to metabolise it. This means that your body will utilise alcohol instead of body fat which will slow down weight loss.
