Thanksgiving Cocktails

Thanksgiving is in 10 days and then we’re off to the holiday races.

Every nutritionist has tips on how to get through the season without over eating – steer clear of the dip, etc. Luckily, a local distillery can help get you through all your holiday happy hours, office parties, and potlucks without packing on pounds and serious sugar-induced hangovers.

Holidays and cranberries go hand-in-hand. A typical vodka and cranberry weighs in at 232 calories, 23 carbs and 23 grams of sugar. To burn that baby off you need to run about 25 minutes on the treadmill – per cocktail. Two ounces of Boardroom’s FRESH Cranberry infused vodka and seltzer with a splash of lime juice is a mere 94 calories, 0 carbs, 0 sugar – a paleo dream! If you are anything like me, you just figured out you can drink three cocktails using Boardroom’s FRESH Cranberry and spend the same amount of time at the gym.
