As the holidays draw closer, and the joy and colors of fall find their full appeal, what better time to get together with friends and enjoy a few delicious drinks by the fire? Of course, just because you want to have a good time now that Summer is over, doesn't necessarily mean that you want to get rid of your bikini-ready body. After all, you spent all of that time in your waist-slimming belt, and hitting the gym for a reason.
Fortunately, if you're concerned about watching your figure, then we might have the solution. Though you'll need to think carefully about the foods that you pile on your plate, our selection of waist-slimming cocktails could allow you to have your fill of delicious booze - without the huge amount of excess calories.
Remember, whichever drink you decide to try, make sure that you consume alcohol responsibly.
1. A Bluegrass Cocktail
