Cocktails by Cascade | Basically Guilt-Free Drinks

Living a healthy and fulfilling lifestyle doesn't mean you have to be the person hiding at the party, sipping on water in a dixie cup (don't be offended because this has so been me before). One of my personal mantra's is to embrace life with the idea that everything is better in moderation. Really though, even if it's spinach, you eat too much of it, and it could harm your body.

There's nothing wrong with enjoying a cocktail with friends, and thankfully, there are several healthier options available for you to make those cocktails almost guilt-free (there's always a little bit of guilt associated with alcohol, isn't there — haha).

In this post, I'll present to you healthier drink options that you can make at home. My friends at Cascade Ice sent me a cute red box full of sparkling water mixers that are absolutely perfect for making light cocktails. Granted, I tried them all straight out of the bottle, and they taste delicious by themselves, so these could be an alternative to other fruity drinks or juices. Before I they contacted me, I hadn't heard of Cascade Ice, but a few days later, I noticed several flavors available at Kroger. You can also find them in other major retailers like Wal-Mart, Albertson's and Safeway.

Here are some ways they are different than other products out there:

  • Zero-calorie and sugar-free
  • Caffeine-free
  • Sodium-free
  • Gluten-free
  • Carb-free
  • Artificial-anything-free

A girlfriend and I enjoyed the Cosmopolitan one night, and we both approved. As an avid diet cranberry and vodka drinker, I found this cocktail to be super easy, and tasty.

The next one I want to try is one of their Va-Va-Voom Valentine's Day cocktails called Ice Love Potion, which is made with Cherry-Guava Blueberry Cascade Ice and gin. Ummm, yes please!

I encourage you to check out their blog, where they post tips for creating new and fresh cocktails and other fruity drinks, plus visit their Recipes page to find out more.
