Somewhere between the dinner table and making the rounds on the friends-and-family party circuit, you’ll likely find yourself reaching for a few drinks this holiday season. It could be to celebrate. It could be a social convention. It could be you just need something to make you forget about this damn new omicron variant that seems to have no escape…In the end, the result is the same: a drink. ‘Tis the season for festive, fun, and tasty cocktails. With all the holiday parties to attend and host, we at kreation wanted to provide you, our kreation family with a few kreationized holiday drink options that are better for our bodies but do not compromise flavor. We whipped up three healthy holiday cocktail recipes that contain all of the good cheer and none of the guilt – we’ll toast to that!
First off, we kreated the “Flakita Margarita”, a lower calorie, lower sugar spin on everyone’s favorite classic margarita—packed with Vitamin C and cayenne pepper, this drink could even be considered as an immune booster!
Ingredients: serves 4
8 oz tequila blanco
16 oz slim master or master kleanse
1 lime & some cranberries for the garnish
Salt or Tajin for rim
Preparation: pour all your ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake for a few seconds or until well combined. Line your rim with a bit of lime juice and tajin before pouring your cocktail in. Garnish with some sliced jalapeno or lime wedge and enjoy!
Next up, is our “Vanilla Espresso Martini”, a fun and easy twist on the beloved sugar and dairy filled espresso martini. We promise our version is still just as fun but has a fraction of the calories!

8 oz vodka (we prefer tito’s for a gluten free beverage)

Our bubbly mimosa using Kreation Orange Juice is a simple yet oh so satisfying. This version of a classic drink has no added sugar nor added bullsh*t since we use simply oranges to make our OJ. Loaded with vitamin C this drink will have you giggling while defending your body.

Orange & Cranberries for garnish
Simple poor in the orange juice followed by the Champagne. Garnish with an orange peel and some cranberries on a tooth pic to make it feel festive.
