These are certainly a buzz drink right now! Everywhere you look it’s Copper Mugs and Ginger Beer. Unfortunately, they are also loaded with sugar! Topping 20 grams per glass and loaded with around 200 calories. Many ginger beers contain unwanted ingredients and most don’t even have actual ginger in them!
Here’s how to create a 100 calorie low sugar Moscow Mule. It combines ginger root, water, stevia, lemon juice, sparkling water, vodka and mint. Get the recipe here – YUM!

Jazz up your cocktail with green tea antioxidants! Brew 8 ounces of green tea and chill 1/2 for the next drink on our list!
For this one, use 4 ounces of the hot green tea and dissolve 1 oz of honey in it. Add 2 ounces of bourbon and toss in a cinnamon stick for flare. Simple AND delicious!
