Rethink Your Drink

Araya Jackson

Attention: All of those Vodka Crans and Tequila Sunrises ARE FULL OF SUGAR. Lord, the sugar, the calories, it’s just gross. Sure, your taste buds love the refreshing fruity flavor, but your body will pay the consequences later. And you really wonder where the “Freshman 15” comes from?

If you’re really trying the healthy route this year, switching up your drink choices should be one of the first changes you make.

This week, we are comparing the seductive Sex On The Beach with a smooth Vodka Soda Lime.

Sex On The Beach holds a hefty 274 calories, 29 grams of carbs, and 26 grams of sugar per serving. In comparison, the Vodka Soda Lime only has 96 calories, 0 grams of carbs, and 0 grams of sugar per serving.

Sure, the Vodka Soda Lime isn’t as tasty, but it is refreshing, and a hell of a lot better for you. Plus, you’re staying hydrated with water, which will also help you feel better in the morning.

This is for a standard size drink with house vodka. These results were taken with the Under Armor myfitnesspal, a calorie counter app. Please remember, no matter what you drink, enjoy responsibly.
