Lighten Up Your At-Home Happy Hour: 7 Cocktails Under 90 Calories

Updated: Jul 31

Our at-home Happy Hours have become a moment (or an hour or two) of joy for many of us over the past two months. We schedule zooms for them, make fancy cocktails, and kick back.

Sometimes traditional cocktails can feel quite heavy and sugary though, so we've put together 7 cocktails that are all under 90 calories, made with 100% real ingredients, and most importantly, are super delicious. No "too sweet" drinks or blah vodka sodas here!


Bonus, they are all fool-proof. You really can't go wrong. Happy At-Home-Happy-Houring!
