Let’s face it, summer is here. We’re shedding clothes and hitting pool parties. There’s just one thing we want to discuss over here at Iconic: low-calorie cocktails. No need for artificial or diet sodas. There’s a better way! You don’t have to sacrifice the things you love this summer just to make sure you look good. 

We have designed 4 cocktail recipes all under 100 calories that are perfect for summertime. Yes, they have sugar but our mixers are naturally a low sugar option. And guess what, booze has sugar in it. So if you’re gonna drink it, why not make it better?

Good ingredients and measuring are what you need to make these cocktails. Keep in mind when picking out spirit, the proof will affect the calorie and alcohol content. We have built these cocktails with specific proofs in mind to help keep the count down. Join us this summer by making these summer recipes all under 100 calories.
