Low Calorie Cocktails: Gin & Tonic with Cucumber
I originally wrote about this classic gin and tonic recipe (with a cucumber twist) for my Parade Magazine blog. It’s a light, refreshing and low calorie libation that’s perfect for easing into those New Year’s dieting resolutions.
A gin and tonic is one of the lowest-calorie cocktails (under 100 calories, depending on the gin), so you can relax and celebrate with less guilt!
- 2 oz Hendrick's gin
- 1 oz lime juice
- 5 oz tonic water
- 2-3 slices cucumber
- Pour gin and lime juice over ice in a glass and mix together.
- Pour in tonic water.
- Top with fresh cucumber slices and mix well.
