MAKING LOW SUGAR CHOICES
HOW TO CHOOSE HEALTHY, NON-ALCOHOLIC DRINKS
Alcoholic drinks seem to be the staple of most restaurants, gatherings and celebrations. But if you don’t want to drink, your options are limited. We are here to change that.
In this article, we explore the health implications of drinking high-sugar, alcoholic drinks, and the benefits of drinking low-sugar non-alcoholic drinks.
HIDDEN SUGAR AND CALORIES
Believe it or not, alcoholic drinks are packed full of sugar, and when you’re busy drinking it’s the last thing you think about.
Although all alcohol contains natural sugars, many of the mixers that are added to your cocktails contain a lot of sugar.
In fact, alcohol makes up for 10% of 29-64 year old’s daily sugar intake . This sugar adds a lot of empty calories to your drink and has no nutritional value.
Low-sugar, or “skinny” non-alcoholic drinks are a great way to enjoy a refreshing cocktail without replacing flavour with sugar.
Look for cocktails that contain fewer calories and follow the recommended government guidance of less than 5g of sugar per serving.
Savyll’s range are all under 4g of sugar per 100ml, ensuring you’re getting less sugar and more flavour.

BENEFITS OF DRINKING LOW-SUGAR, NON-ALCOHOLIC DRINKS
Choosing to drink non-alcoholic cocktails comes with several benefits, such as:
Forget about the dehydration, grogginess, or headaches that come with drinking sugar-laden alcoholic cocktails. This means you can wake up ready to go the next morning!
A BETTER NIGHT'S SLEEP
Both alcohol and excess sugar can disrupt your sleep, leading you to wake up feeling like you haven’t slept at all. By choosing low-sugar, non-alcoholic drinks you can rest assured that the cocktails from the evening before won’t affect your beauty sleep.
BETTER FOR YOUR WAISTLINE
Food and drinks that contain a lot of sugar also contain a lot of calories. Skinny non-alcoholic drinks mean you don’t have to worry about putting on unhealthy weight.
LOWER THE HEALTH RISKS
A high sugar diet can increase your risk of illnesses such as type two diabetes and heart disease, and if you drink a lot of alcohol you increase your risk of developing high blood pressure and liver disease.
