It is no secret that I love to drink, but that drinking has definitely caught up with my waistline. I have tried and tried again to quit drinking beer or participate in dry January, but it only makes me feel as though I am punishing myself. I have a friend that does marketing for Molly’s Spirits and she introduced me to Truly Spiked and Sparkling, a delicious and light alcoholic drink with 5% ABV and only 100 calories. This drink is definitely going to be my go-to for spring and summer.
There are five different flavors of Truly Spiked and Sparkling to choose from. My favorite was the Pomegranate.
1. Sicilian Blood Orange
2. Lemon and Yuzu
4. Colima Lime
5. Grapefruit and Pomelo
What is great about Truly Spiked and Sparkling is that they use all natural ingredients and it is gluten free! According to their website “Truly Spiked & Sparkling uses simple ingredients with no artificial flavors or sweeteners. The alcohol in Truly Spiked & Sparkling comes from fermented cane sugar with a hint of fruit.” Did I mention that it is only 1 gram of sugar?! I am a huge fan of La Croix sparkling water, so this suits my palate perfectly. If you want to feel refreshed, sexy, and skinny this summer, I definitely suggest subbing your normal summer beer choice for one (or six) of these.
When I first picked up my six pack of Truly, my husband laughed that I was making such a fuss about 100 calories, however, when I pointed out that a 12-ounce bottle of Blue Moon contains 171 calories and then multiplied that by six, the difference was astounding! A six pack of Blue moon would end up being almost a days worth of calories, 1,026 to be exact. Also Truly Spiked and Sparkling only has 2 grams of carbs compared to blue moons 12.9 grams.
Blue moon is just one example of beer compared to Truly. I will not kid myself and say that this can curb your cravings for a delicious craft beer, but like most beers Truly is 5% abv which is pretty damn good.
I am now in crunch time for my Sister-in-law’s wedding in England! My co-worker and I have made it our mission to hit 140 lbs or less by June 30th. I will definitely need all the help in eating better and cutting out beer that I can get. Bring on bikini season, because this year there will be no fear!
