Is there anything better than reclining on a beach chair, looking out at the crashing waves, and sipping a summer cocktail like a margarita or piña colada?

Pure heaven. The only downside? That piña colada has a staggering 664 calories.

If we really wanted to keep our bikini bodies looking great the easiest solution would be to forgo those tasty summer cocktails altogether, but how boring is that? Very. Which is why we tapped a team of mixologists and nutritionists and asked them for best-of-both-worlds solutions: low calorie drinks that taste just as good, or even better, than your high-cal summer cocktail staples.

If these tasty, low-calorie sips sound too good to be true (we were skeptical at first, too), keep reading to see the recipes our team came up with. The secret? Instead of using calorie-filled mixes loaded with sugar, they swapped in fresh fruit and juices that give you plenty of flavor without all the extra stuff.

Consider these 10 summer drink recipes your key to diet-friendly fun. And if you want to go even further and try your own hand at mixology, keep these guidelines in mind:

•Use soda water as a low-calorie mixer.
•Add pieces of fruit for sweetness, instead of sugar.
•Try making summer cocktails with sake, shochu, or soju, they tend to have fewer calories than traditional spirits, like vodka or gin.
