Our favourite Christmas cocktails – that won’t break the diet!

‘Tis the season to be merry but with so many Christmas parties, family gatherings and festive events to attend, it can be easy to drink half your daily intake of calories without even realising it!

We love a Christmas coffee, indulgent hot chocolate and cheeky cocktail now and again, but with these drinks coming in at 300, 400 and even 500 calories, they can be a disaster when it comes to dieting!

Here are some naughty but nice (for your waistline!) Christmas cocktails that you can make at home – and they’re all under 200 calories!
