Healthy Cocktails Men Should Order

Alcohol..

An interesting subject in the health world. Some say it’s going to kill you and some say you can drink in moderation.

I personally believe in moderation. Now for those of you who hate alcohol, congrats.

For my clients and I, we go to a lot of social gatherings and business dinners. Occasional drinking is a part of life but it should not be a daily thing.

Drinking 2-3 drinks a week isn’t bad, it’s when you are drinking everyday or for some… Drinking 2-3 drinks a night (that’s not social, that’s excessive)

However this blog isn’t to condemn you for drinking but to rather give you healthier options to drink.

Even though I don’t drink much, I choose these types of cocktails when I go out.

Here’s why:

  1. They taste great
  2. They are lower in sugar so I’m not completely falling off the wagon
  3. You can find them at any bar

So the next time your waiter or bartender asks you, “Sir what would you like to drink?” , you have a healthier option that has the same amount of alcohol, minus the sugar.

  • 3-inch piece of orange peel
  • Orange zest

  1. Place bitters and the whiskey in an Old Fashioned glass, stir well
  2. Add 2 large ice cubes. Stir 2 to 3 times to chill

Now when it comes to other drinks here is my rule of thumb..

If you’re a beer man–> Drink Guinness OR look for a local/organic beer, maybe even a gluten free one if it’s on the menu.

If you’re a wine man–> Drink Pinot Noir if you want a red or a Pinot Grigio for a white wine.    

So there you have it, 3 cocktails you can order that are on the healthier side. Try these cocktails out next time and make sure to tag @thebilliondollarbody on Facebook and Instagram.
