14 New Year’s Eve Cocktails That Actually Aren’t That Bad For You

Here’s to a fresh start.

OMG, you guys, 2016 is almost over. And we know you could probably use a drink — or three — to celebrate the end of this year and the promise of a fantastic 2017.

Okay sure, it's probably safer to avoid alcohol if you're trying to cut down on sugar or reduce your calories. But if you're planning on drinking anyway and looking for something a little ~lighter~, we've rounded up some options.

None of these require sugary mixers or sodas. Instead, they're sweetened with mostly natural ingredients like fresh or squeezed fruit. Some do include a little sugar or other sweeteners, but those can be adjusted — or just left out entirely — depending on your preferences.

So HAPPY FREAKIN' NEW YEAR'S!

Boozy Blood Orange Punch

Boozy Blood Orange Punch

Tis the season for blood oranges too, and my-oh-my is this a beautifully delicious drink. Squeeze out some extra blood orange juice so you won't have to use any store-bought stuff, which has added sugar.

Rosemary Grapefruit Fizz

The citrus and herbal flavors blend together into a cocktail that's quintessentially winter. Grapefruits are also in season this time of the year, so you'll have all the natural sweetness you need. (Give me all of it, please!)

Note: If you can't find grapefruit-flavored La Croix, club soda works just fine.

This is literally like an alcoholic strawberry slushy. And you can ditch the optional teaspoon of sugar in the recipe since the strawberries are sweet enough.
