Low Sugar Mocktails

These non-alcoholic drinks are a fantastic alternative to traditional alcoholic beverages and are perfect for Dry January, baby showers, refreshing summer drinks, or any time you want to reduce your alcohol consumption.

Low-sugar mocktails are also a great option for those watching their blood sugar. Using simple ingredients like fresh fruit, club soda, coconut water, and lemon juice, you can whip up delicious mocktails that are both refreshing and healthy.

What to Look for when Making Low Sugar Mocktails

  • Fresh Ingredients: Fresh fruits, like strawberries and blood orange, not only provide natural sweetness but also loads of vitamin C.
  • Natural Sweeteners: Instead of added sugar, opt for natural sweeteners or sugar substitutes that won’t spike your blood sugar.
  • Non-Alcoholic Spirits: There are plenty of non-alcoholic alternatives available these days, from non-alcoholic gin to non-alcoholic wine. Just be sure to read labels carefully for nasty ingredients or added sugars you may want to avoid.
  • Healthy Hydration: Coconut water and soda water make for a light and refreshing base.
  • Citrus Twist: Fresh lime juice or orange juice can add a zesty kick without too much sugar.

What to Avoid for Low Sugar Mocktails

  • High-Sugar Mixers: Tonic water and ginger beer may seem like good choices, but they often have high sugar content.
  • Sugary Fruit Juices: While apple cider and pomegranate juice might be tasty, they are often packed with added sugar.
  • Pre-Made Mixes: Always check the ingredient label; many pre-made mixes contain a significant amount of sugar.
  • Food Dyes: We all love colorful drinks, just be sure you are not ingesting food dyes. Add a splash of fruit juice, make your own DIY food dye.
  • Additives & Preservatives: Avoid mixes that use high fructose corn syrup, preservatives, and other fillers.
  • Simple Syrup: Avoid traditional simple syrup and instead make your own homemade simple syrup using natural sweeteners.
