I don’t drink an awful lot, but when I do, I obviously have to make sure that what I’m drinking is vegan friendly! And now that BBQ and festival season is here, having canned drinks is really helpful as you can just grab a premade cocktail and go! That’s where SkinnyBrands cocktails come in. Yes, these drinks are ‘diet’ – if you know me, I actually don’t care how many calories are in these things, or the fact that they have a certain amount of calories in them. But having something you know is vegan, tastes good, and is portable… that’s what I’m into! Want to know how I found these new cocktails on the block? Read on…
Vegan Cosmopolitan and Margarita Canned Cocktails
The lovely people at SkinnyBrands sent me a gorgeous box of vegan friendly goodness to enjoy – check the above pic for what they sent!
A selection of delicious Ten Acre vegan friendly popcorn (2 bags of each – my fave flavours are Lime & Sea Salt*, and Fennel & Lemon*), a vegan friendly face mask, and some cans of Margarita and Cosmo cocktails!
So what are Skinnybrands canned cocktails like?
As you can see below, both cocktails sampled contained the same calories and alcohol content. They also both contain milk thistle. Why? Because milk thistle has been proven to protect the liver from toxins, and by drinking it with alcohol you are meant to lessen the effects it has on the liver. Anyway, onto the cocktails themselves!
Skinnybrands Cosmo Review
I really enjoyed the Skinnybrands Cosmo – you really cannot tell that it’s:
- Low calorie
- From a can
The simple construction of the cocktail really does make it. Often, canned, premade cocktails are stuffed to the brim with unneeded additives, but as you’ll see from the ingredients below, these contain nothing of the sort!
Contains: Vodka, cranberry, triple sec, milk thistle.
Calories per can: 90 ABV: 5%
Skinnybrands Margarita Review
I’m a big fan of margaritas, so I was bracing myself to be let down by the Skinnybrands Margarita. Why? Because I’ve been let down by canned Margaritas before! However, it was not the case this time. PHEW. This was a decent tasting cocktail, what would have made it better was for me to have added a little salt to the rim of my glass. Next time, I’ll need to do that, for sure.
Contains: Tequila, triple sec, lime, milk thistle.
Calories per can: 90 ABV: 5%
Skinnybrands also have a Mojito (I LOVE mojitos) in their cocktail range, and a selection of wines, with more to come later this year.
You can buy Skinnybrands canned cocktails from Tesco:
Thank you for Skinnybrands for sending me the fab gift pack, I had lots of fun having a good pamper and cocktail fuelled chats!
