Reducing Carbs? The Best Alcoholic Cocktails with Little Carbs

Just because you’re counting your carbs doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy alcoholic beverages. What it does mean, however, is that you need to pay attention to carbohydrates and choose alcoholic cocktails that have little carbs. Despite what you may think, there are several low carb options for when you want to enjoy an adult beverage. In order for an alcoholic cocktail to be low carb, you will need to drastically cut back on the amount of sugar. You can do this by simply creating stevia syrup to use in replace of the traditional simple syrup typically used in cocktails. Stevia, which is a sugar alternative, contains no carbohydrates.

Your basic distilled spirits, such as vodka, whiskey, gin, rum and tequila, are free of carbohydrates. However, fortified alcohols and liqueurs do, in fact contain sugar. That is why you will need to use a basic distilled spirit as the base of the cocktail and then add sugar-free or low-sugar mixers. To help you get started, we have complied the best low carb alcoholic cocktails that you can easily make at home.

Watermelon and Ginger Fizz – Forgo the simple syrup and instead use stevia syrup with a calorie-free ginger ale. Keep the vodka as the base.

Cucumber and Gin Fizz – This common cocktail normally contains tonic water which is high in carbs. Instead, use a sugar-free tonic water – which uses artificial sweetener – to make this drink without carbs. Another option is to use tonic water that is agave-based. This won’t make it no carb but it will drastically reduce the amount of carbs in the cocktail.

Skinny Ginger Mule and Skinny Whiskey Sour – Replace the high carb ginger beer with a diet ginger ale to make this delicious cocktail low in carbs. For the whiskey sour, simply make your own no carb option by creating a sour mix from Lemonade flavored MIO water enhancer and water, and then add whiskey.

Margarita and Mojito – For a low carb option, avoid orange liqueur and instead use orange extract with a little no-calorie sweetener. As for the mojito, you can make it low carb by using ginger ale or diet tonic water with simple syrup that contains no carbohydrates.

The No Hangover Cocktail – While the whole “no hangover” thing isn’t a guarantee, you can use club soda, vodka and lime to create a naturally carb free cocktail.

How To Choose A School For Children

One of the most important decisions that a parent will make is deciding where to send their children for school. This is a pressure packed decision that could very well chart a course for the rest of your child's life. The following these tips can help to provide the assistance that a parent needs when it comes to making this difficult choice.

1. Teaching Staff

The bond that your child develops with a teacher will often determine their level of academic success. This connection's importance trumps that of any curriculum. Before choosing a school for your children, have a sit down with the teachers that will be responsible for your child's education and give your child the chance to meet them, as well. This allows you to see if a rapport can be developed between all parties involved.

2. Strong Math Curriculum

Mathematics is one of the most important subjects to your child's overall development. Your child needs to be exposed to as many math concepts as they can handle, especially during their earliest school days. There is no need to make them wait until they reach an older age. Math aptitude is innate and can be immediately sensed in a variety of instances. Feeding this part of a child's mind at a young age pays major dividends later in life. Remember that you don't only have to rely on the school about it, you can also work together with your kid. You will probably need some educational aids and they can easily be found in such stores as Kohl's, where they also offer you helpful discounts when you use a promo code from or search for other special deals.

3. Lessened Focus On Standardized Test Scores

While high scores on standardized tests are always a good sign, they do not always mean that the student is progressing as necessary. High scores can mean that the student is intelligent, but it can also mean that the school is tailoring their curriculum towards the test. A school that is teaching to these tests is a school that is not covering all of the necessary bases. A school with a contest mentality is not one that your child should be attending.
4. Recess Is Necessary

Don't allow yourself to fall into the trap of believing that excessive playtime is making our children "soft". Children need regular aerobic exercise and physical activity is also scientifically proven to improve a child's cognitive functioning;over the course of a school day. Elementary schools should not be built to function as a boot camp and this mentality needs to be avoided at all costs.; 5. Don't Be Swayed By Fancy Titles; Just because a school has the word "charter" or "private" in its name, this does not mean that it is necessarily the best choice. There is no name that absolutely guarantees the quality of a school. Statistics have shown that only 20 percent of charter schools actually exceed the quality of the schools they are replacing. A public school can provide the same level of education as one that charges a hefty tuition fee.

Haiyan/Yolanda 2nd Anniversary Candlelight Memorial

Last Sunday was the second year anniversary. The Yolanda Cabdlelight Memorial was one of the activities. Lastvyear the candle light ceremony was only held in Tacloban City. This year Palo, Tanauan and Tolosa joined the event. More or less 50,000 candles have been lighted. My family joined this memorable event and offer prayer to my older brother and his family who lost thier lives caused by the storm surge.

Apart from candlelighting, various masses was held on the mass graves. As for our barangay we opt to have a mass. For financial problem we also opt not have the ballon flying which we did last year during the firat year anniversary.
