Skinny Riptide
We love a drink that looks and tastes good, but this Skinny Riptide makes us feel good knowing that it’s less than 100 calories. Blue Chair Bay Rum

When it comes to finding the perfect cocktails to sip while we dip our toes in the pool (or kiddy pool, no judging), the one aspect we tend to forget or just flat out ignore is the calorie count. After all, we might be looking to unwindulax and live our best resort lives at home, but the last thing we want to do is sacrifice our beach bodies in doing so. Unless your cocktail plans include a post-workout celebration, in which case you do you, amigos.

Fortunately, as if we shined a bat signal in the shape of a hammock into the sunny sky, some people who know a thing or 10 about living the best beach life came to save the day with not one, but three skinny cocktails to eliminate the guilt and increase the positive vibes. The beach bums at Kenny Chesney’s Blue Chair Bay Rum gifted us these recipes for tropical classics, and the real treat is that they each come in under 100 calories.

So, if your goal is to live up to the “no shirts” part of the equation, these will be the right cocktails for you. Even better? They’re incredibly easy to make.
