(RM3 and HCG Approved) NYE Drink Guide

It’s time to celebrate 2015 before we enter 2016! Hopefully you have your party plans set, outfits picked out and resolutions chosen.

We understand that the hardest part about the holidays is staying on track with your weight loss regimen, especially New Year’s Eve you are likely bombarded with the temptation of a cocktail.

Here are some RM3 and HCG approved “virgin” cocktails to stay on track this New Year’s Eve. And remember on this night not only is taste important, presentation is key!

Sparkling Virgin Apple Martini/ Caramel Apple Martini

Ingredients:

  • 1 apple juiced (use pulp from apple)

  • Apple slice for garnish
  • Crushed ice (optional)

Directions:

Combine apple and lemon juices with flavored Stevia. Add sparkling mineral water and ice if desired. Serve in a martini glass with a slice or curl of apple peel for garnish. Works great with tangy apples like Granny Smith or for a sweeter apple tini you can use Red Delicious or other sweet apples.
