Skinny Boy Cocktails: 5 Twink Approved Low-Cal Drinks

If you’re a college student like I am, your mind is probably always on one of the three B’s: boys, body, and booze. Luckily for you, I have five wonderful low-cal cocktails to help you get all three!

 

Rum and Diet Coke

 

1. Rum and Diet Coke

Rum and Coke’s a classic cocktail mainstay.. There are little to no carbs in rum, but to give the drink a low-cal spin, replace the Coke with Diet or Coke Zero if you want the same taste. To experiment with flavor, try white rum or spiced rum instead of dark. Garnish with a lime wedge if you want to make it a Cuba Libre!

 

Mudslide low calorie

2. Mudslide

Coming in at about 150 calories less than a White Russian, a mudslide is your best bet to satisfy your twink cravings for sweet, creamy, white liquid while helping keep your waistline in check. There are four parts to this drink! One part vodka, one part Kahlua, one ounce Bailey’s, and one ounce cream. To cut extra calories, replace the cream with skim milk!

 

Mojito low calorie

3. Mojito

Yes gays, it’s true! The gayest drink available can come lite, as well! It’s harder to get this drink this way at a bar, but if you make your own, it can come in at half the calories! The traditional ingredients for a mojito are soda water, rum, mint, lime, and simple syrup (which packs on the pounds). To make a diet mojito, replace the simple syrup with two packets of Splenda! Now the only thing with calories in the drink is the shot of rum and problem solved! Now put some Splenda around the rim and you can impress any Grindr hookup.

 

Hot Toddy

4. A Hot Toddy

Perfect for twinks shivering in their tank tops in the cold! Coming in at a little over 100 calories, this mix of bourbon and hot tea is perfect for a cold night. Add a shot of brandy to some black tea, a little honey, and a splash of lemon juice!

 

tequila

5. Tequila over ice

Put down the Skinnygirl Margarita! Although this simple drink isn’t as fancy , this can cut almost 400 calories depending on the size of the margarita. Ask for a shot of tequila on the rocks with a splash of soda water and some lime for the same taste at a healthy level! If you want to really trick your mind into thinking it’s the same thing, add salt around the rim of your drink.

 

Always remember to be safe, never drink and drive, and forget everything you just read if you’re under 21!

Happy drinking!
