When you're mixing healthy drinks together, keep sweet liqueurs out as they are filled with calories. Also, let the recipes be simple with minimal mixers as any cocktail or drink with multiple mixers can increase the calorie count. And last, but certainly the most important... Don't drink and drive, please.
