Helloooo, Paloma! Made from equal parts tequila, grapefruit juice, and club soda, a Tequila Paloma is sure to hit the spot! Some bartenders will serve it up with a salted rim, and all should be happy to oblige if you request it. The Tequila Paloma is a thirst-quenching choice for the hottest days of summer. This is one of my favorite healthy cocktails to order at any restaurant!

Next, on our list of healthy cocktails to order at any restaurant, you might have heard of the white wine spritzer, but let me introduce you to your new BFF, the Rose Spritzer. Spritzers are such a lovely treat and remind me of summertime and patois. I can almost hear the birds chirping and feel the sunrays warming me as I type. Rose spritzers are dry and refreshing, not sweet. A slice of lemon often sets it off nicely.
For a homemade version, try this recipe from Salt and Lavender.
Oh, the Cosmopolitan, my truest love. Somehow this almost pure alcohol drink has become known as a fruity foofoo drink. Don't underestimate the powers of this orange-flavored martini. With only alcohol and a splash of cranberry and lime juices, this cocktail is all business in the tastiest fashion.

The last on our list of healthy cocktails to order when at a restaurant, the ancient gin gimlet has a thousand twists and turns it can take, but the classic is simple and delicious. Gin, lime, and a touch of simple syrup. It can benefit from adding cucumbers, fruit juices, or club soda, but the classic is delicious.
