“How To Drink While Dieting”, an e-book written by Michael Cecchin, provides readers with a wealth of information about alcohol and how it impacts your health and weight. Readers learn how to cut the calories out of their favorite drinks without skimping on the taste. Recipes are given for mixing Retro Cocktails, Blended Low Calorie Cocktails, Quick & Easy Low Calorie Cocktails, New Low Calorie Cocktails, After Dinner Drinks, and cocktails that include wine as well. Comparison information for a long list of Beer varieties is provided.
My thoughts about the e-book:
I am so impressed by this book! It is packed with so much information and I found it truly educational. I had been told that there were health benefits to drinking red wine; however, I wasn’t aware that there were health benefits to all alcohol (in moderation, of course). I am in no way a “mixologist”. I love that this book provides all the basics for me, including information about glassware, equipment, and important definitions – I never knew what a “dirty” drink was until I read this book!
The book has motivated me to be my own mixologist and no longer rely on my husband to mix drinks for me. There are so many recipes I’m looking forward to trying. I made the “Girl Scout Cookie” this weekend. Oh my gosh – it’s a Thin Mint Cookie in a glass! Yummy! And I was relaxed knowing that there were only 126 calories. It’s a sweet drink so I simply sipped that drink for a while and it was my only drink of the night. My drink didn’t look as pretty in the book because I only had blue peppermint schnapps, not clear, so my drink was a funky color. But, this didn’t matter to me!
Here’s a photo of my drink!
