1. Figure-Friendly Options  

Vodka and soda water are widely known for being low in calories. If you are conscious of calories but desire a tastier drink, there are available alternatives.

Both gin and bourbon have just a slight increase in calories than vodka contains, yet there is a remarkable boost in flavor.

2. A Burst of Vitamin C 

A slice or squeeze of citrus fruits like lemon or lime adds a splash of Vitamin C to your drinks. Vitamin C can assist in healthy immune maintenance and also counteract free radicals that are harmful to skin cells and tissues.

When fresh fruit juices are combined into a liquor to whip-up cocktails, the drink becomes chock full of beneficial Vitamin C. Since fruit contains a notable amount of sugar, be mindful not to consume colossal amounts.

3. Healing Powers of Mixers

Mixers are advantageous due to their spectrum of health benefits. For example, tonic water contains quinine, which helps to block Malaria naturally.

Ginger is present in natural ginger beer or ale and is abundant in healing properties such as anti-nausea, anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antibacterial, and antiviral. Ginger also provides vitamins A, C, E, and B, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, iron, zinc, and calcium. 

4. Curing Abilities of Spirits

Gin is created out of seemingly endless good-for-you ingredients including juniper berries, angelica root, rosemary, citrus peel, nutmeg, sage, and lemongrass. Furthermore, juniper berries are believed to fight infection, are loaded with antioxidants, and assist in canceling out free radicals.

5. Corrective Capabilities of Bitters

Bitters are an essential ingredient to most cocktails which is great for you since they are thought to have corrective health properties and contain beneficial ingredients, namely orange peel and quinine. Bitters are known to remedy upset stomachs and may even cure episodes of hiccups.
