Do you want to lose some weight but without denying yourself the tasty drink after work? Don’t worry, we here at Uvinum are very familiar with this dilemma. That’s why we present 4 cocktails with a low-calorie count, so you can enjoy Saturday night with your friends and, at the same time, preserve your figure.
1. Spritzer – The Austrian National Drink
The Spritzer, also known as Weinschorle in Germany, is probably the most popular long drink in Austria and is enjoyed at any time of the year. It is a drink made from wine mixed with mineral water and decorated with a slice of lemon. You should use fairly young white wine from the Grüner Veltliner, Weißburgunder or Chardonnay grape varieties in this popular drink. The ratio of wine to mineral water should be 1:1. This refreshing drink contains just 58 calories per 100ml.
There is yet another advantage to this all-purpose drink: you will minimise the risk of a hangover the next day due to the high content of water in the drink. Enjoy this Austrian classic!
2. Vodka Soda – Simple and Low in Calories
Water + Vodka = Vodka Soda
Of course, it’s not that simple! This cocktail must be mixed properly. First, fill a glass with ice cubes and then add the ingredients. For this low-calorie drink, you need 3 parts of sparkling water and 1 part of vodka. Once it is mixed, decorate the glass with a lime. This cocktail contains only 22 calories per 100ml.

3. Martini – Shaken or Stirred?
We all know this famous drink from the James Bond movies, but did you also know that this cocktail belongs in the category of low-calorie alcoholic beverages? The Martini cocktail is a short drink, often enjoyed as an aperitif, and it is usually prepared with vermouth and gin.
One of the best-known Martini cocktails is the Dry Martini. This cocktail is made with London Dry Gin and just a tiny splash of vermouth, as little as possible. And you should never forget the olive that decorates the glass.
Every 100 ml of a Martini Cocktail contains a mere 140 calories! Now you know why James Bond has such a perfect body.
4. Mojito – Greetings from Cuba
The mojito is a low-calorie alternative, unlike many other Cuban cocktails. The mojito was invented in Havana, and this cocktail consists of 5 basic ingredients: white rum, sugar (traditionally sugarcane juice), lemon juice, soda and mint. The most important element in the preparation of a mojito is undoubtedly the rum. Uvinum offers a selection of the best rums for your mojito.
The amount of mineral water in this Cuban drink makes it a low-calorie cocktail. ‘The green gold of Cuba’ has only 71 calories per 100ml.
You can find a unique selection of low-calorie options. So, you no longer need to worry about the temptations at the next party. We hope you have fun when trying and enjoying these low-calorie cocktails. And, remember, drink in moderation!
