The following are low calorie alcoholic cocktail recipes I got in an email and some that I found online. I will be adding more as soon as I find some. Note that these are recipes for low calorie cocktails you can make yourself. It is unlikely that you will find anything that you could get in a bar in this list. If you do want to know what to drink when you are going out, have a look at my post on low calorie alcoholic drinks, which covers low calorie alternatives or brands to look out for on a night out.
