Ah, the New Year…a time for enjoying indoor pursuits and maybe a few beverages. Well, that may be so for many of us, but it doesn’t mean the cocktails have to interfere with your new year’s resolution to cut calories.

Not all cocktails were made equal, and there are ways to make some delicious drinks without the regret that sometimes comes with them. Here are five ideas to help slim down your favorite cocktail—and aid your mission of slimming down in 2016…
