TIPS: Cut calories in your 4th of July cocktails!


We LOVE holidays and the 4th of July is one of our favorites!

What better way to celebrate living in freedom than throwing an All-American Party?!

Independence Day is always full of BBQs, bike rides and usually…beer or some other form of calorie-laden cocktails.

We don’t want to stop┬áthe celebration, but we were searching for a way to not feel bloated and lethargic by days end, so we went to the cocktail drawing board for a couple of Red, White and Blue libations!

Watermelon-Lime Cooler:



1.5 ounces of the vodka of your choice

1/3 cup of fresh watermelon chunks

1 tbsp fresh lime juice


Shake with Ice

Top with Arrowhead Watermelon-Lime Sparkling Water

This cocktail is so refreshing and not too sweet!



5 ounces of bubbles (We LOVE Chandon..Rose would be great too!)


2 ounces of your fave berries

2 ounces of Suja Berry Madness


Stir and sip!


For those with a more sweet-tooth!


It’s not just the cocktails that can break the calorie bank…

Those hot dogs and burgers are about as American as it gets, but they can make you feel all sorts of sluggish.

Try turkey burgers or Applegate’s all-natural dogs! They have chicken, turkey, pork, beef or veggie and they are made without GMOs or artificial ingredients! Now that’s a BBQ we can feel good about!
