If you are looking for ways to consume fewer calories in terms of both your food and drinks, then you can consider using low-calorie options for your mixers for cocktails while still retaining a good taste.
You can go through the following low-calorie options to mix with Jack Daniels in particular. These mixers can help balance out the taste of Jack Daniels without overwhelming it completely.
These options are also easily available in stores or are simple to make on your own.
Lemon juice can be a great way to lower your calorie intake in your cocktail. It would be better for you to make use of fresh lemons instead of store-bought lemon juice, as the latter tends to be mixed with sweeteners.
You can, however, go for store-bought options as well in case you find low-calorie options.
Squeeze out sufficient amounts of the lemon juice and mix it with the Jack Daniels. This can give you the classic Whiskey Sour cocktail. You will also need to add some water to this along with a low-calorie sweetener of your choice (if required).
Flavored water is not only low in calories but can also enhance the taste of your cocktail while balancing out the taste of the Jack Daniels well. You can opt for any flavor or brand of your choice.
However, make sure you look through the ingredients involved in different brands as some of them might use artificial flavors or sweeteners. Brands that use natural flavors squeezed out and infused into the water can serve the purpose better.
You can also infuse the water on your own by allowing the required flavor (lemon, cucumber, berry or others) to soak into the water for a few hours. You can then mix this water with the Jack Daniels and other necessary ingredients to make your cocktail.
Club soda is essentially carbonated water that can give a distinct taste to the water while also forming bubbles inside it. This club soda does not come with any flavors of its own, allowing you to retain the original Jack Daniels flavor with some dilution.
In addition, this can also be a good way to get the carbonated texture that you would usually expect from regular soda. In this case, however, the calories are much lower as compared to the calories that you get in regular soda cans or bottles.
Club soda is a great mixer for cocktails as it can provide a satisfying taste and experience.
Diet soda can be another low-calorie option that you can use as a mixer for your Jack Daniels cocktail. Soft or carbonated drinks like Coca-Cola or Sprite tend to contain large amounts of sugar and calories along with artificial flavors.
Diet soda can use either natural or artificial flavors, but they have a much lower content of sugar and calories that can work well for you. The added bonus of retaining similar tastes as regular carbonated drinks can further maintain the flavors that you are used to.
You can simply mix in the required amounts of this diet soda with the Jack Daniels. You can also add ice if you wish to.
Homemade syrup is quite simple to make. It can also give you a lot more control over the calories that you consume.
To make this syrup, you will need to buy a low-calorie sweetener of your choice along with a thickener that can help give you the required consistency of the syrup.
Once you gather these ingredients, you can combine the water and the sweetener in a pan and boil them together. Add a small amount of the thickener and make sure that everything blends well together.
Once this mixing process is over, you can remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool down. Pour this syrup into a glass container and then add it to your cocktails in small quantities.
There are several syrups and sweeteners that you can buy from a store or order online. Make sure you carry out enough research about their ingredients and calories so that you can ensure that you buy something that meets your requirements.
There are several brands that tend to make organic syrups that you can opt for. These will have natural ingredients along with a variety of flavors that you can pick from.
You can use these syrups for multiple cocktails, including one with the Jack Daniels.
Ginger beer tends to work pretty well with whiskey, including Jack Daniels. In addition, it also has low calories in it that can meet your requirements well. There might be some brands in particular that replace the sugar in the ginger beer with low-calorie alternatives.
The taste of ginger can also add spiciness and some added depth to the Jack Daniels. You can mix the desired quantity of it with the Jack Daniels along with other ingredients of your choice.
Tea is another great low-calorie option to mix with Jack Daniels. You can either make this tea on your own or you can buy some from the store. In the case of the latter, make sure you look through the calorie levels.
Making it on your own can give a richer flavor and more control over the calories. Simply infuse the flavor of your choice into hot water and then let it cool down.
You can then mix this with the Jack Daniels and serve it chilled. Several flavors can be used here as well.
This brings us to the end of this list of low-calorie options to mix with Jack Daniels. We have included a variety of options that you can go through and choose from, including lemon juice, low-calorie sweeteners or syrups, sodas, flavored and sparkling water, ginger beer and tea.
You can also look for some other mixers of your choice. The mixing process is also quite simple as you only need to stir them with the Jack Daniels and other cocktail ingredients.
