Our Lighter Side: 4 Low-Calorie Cocktails to Try Now

It may be cold outside – but swimsuit season is right around the corner!


Are you ready?


If your goals for 2018 include staying healthy and getting fit for spring and summer, then it doesn’t mean you have to cut out alcohol all together. The Nodding Donkey – the best sports bar in Dallas, Texas – has a huge selection of wine, craft beer, and cocktails, and among them, plenty of low calorie options to keep you on track.


If you’re visiting The Nodding Donkey this week for lunch, dinner, or happy hour, then order one of these delicious low calorie options! You won’t even miss the extra calories because they are so good!


Gin & Tonic – Approx. 148 calories

Gin & Tonic is a light, refreshing way to keep the calorie count down. Tonic has only 10 calories an ounce, so add a splash (or more!) of gin and you’re set.


Old Fashioned – Approx. 154 calories

If bourbon neat isn’t your thing, try an Old Fashioned and you’ll still be in the clear. Flavor is added with bitters – a low calorie addition – and at The Nodding Donkey, we add a splash of cherry for flavor.


Martini – Approx. 180 calories

Whether you like it shaken or stirred, a martini is a classic choice for a low calorie cocktail. A martini is nothing more than vermouth and gin or vodka. Pass on the olives and olive juice if you want to cut a few more calories.


Rum & Diet Coke – Approx. 100 calories

Love a rum and coke, but don’t want to overindulge? Try substituting Coke for Diet Coke, and you will cut the calories in half.


The Nodding Donkey has Dallas drink specials going on all week, so be our guest and join us for happy hour, lunch, or dinner any night of the week!

We can’t wait to see you!
