From unsweetened tea to spiked seltzer to light beer, low-calorie alternative beverages are welcome at any summer gathering. We’re not saying you can drink more of them because of that fact, but opt for these over their higher-cal counterparts at your party and you’ll have a little more menu wiggle room for an extra helping of grilled vegetable pizza or lamb slider.
Stock up on these low-calorie alcoholic (and alcohol-free) drinks during your next Whole Foods Market run — then savor and share at your grill-side gatherings.*
