When I told some colleagues that I planned to hunt down and publish the best genuinely healthy premixed cocktails, the general response was “yeah, those don’t exist.” Um, they certainly do.
As someone who generally sticks to a (preferably strong) vodka, club soda, lemon routine whenever I’m drinking anything other than wine, the realm premixed cocktails has never interested me. Why let all that sugar and all those artificial ingredients interfere with the joys of drinking? But! Companies have been catching on, and there are a handful making low calorie, all-natural cocktails that require you to chill a bottle and pour over ice. Hell, some are even organic.
So before you buy a bottle of vodka and some seltzer to pre-game this afternoon—or worse, a syrupy container of supermarket daiquiri mix—try this: Five of our favorite healthy premixed cocktails available to buy right now. Cheers!
