There’s nothing worse than waking up with a hangover from an indulgent night out with the girls. Luckily for us, there seems to be a change in attitude when it comes to cocktails. Bars across the city have adopted a healthier take on our favourite weekend tipple and have created a range of low-calorie cocktails that are better for our diets and leave us less likely to wake up with a sore head the next morning.
Swapping sugary syrups for the natural sweetness of fruit and hit of veggie vitamins, these light drinks are fast becoming a popular alternative. Sounds good to me! Find eight of the best options below.
