A lot of people, actually, and mixed drinks have an especially bad reputation due to their high calorie content and tons of added sugar. Sunnier weather makes this time of the year especially hard, when you may find yourself at more parties where the drinks are flowing, while you're also trying to stay fit and healthy for the summer season ahead. That's where Casamigos comes in, because as far as alcoholic beverages go, Casamigos Tequila is the healthiest you can get at approximately 64 calories per ounce. The ultra-premium spirit, which was created by good friends George Clooney and Rande Gerber four years ago, is made in small batches using only the finest 100% Blue Weber agave plants grown in Mexico's Jalisco Highlands. These plants contain a natural sugar called Agavin, which studies have shown can lower blood sugar and help to burn fat. With no added ingredients and little to no sugar, plus a unique 72-hour agave roasting process and 80-hour fermentation process, Casamigos is the go-to alcohol for any health-conscious drinker.
