Behind the Bar with Karena & Katrina

Last night’s Toned Up episodes featured our venture as guest bartenders at a fun, local beach bar, 12+Highland! As you know, we believe in balance, fun and letting loose every once in a while ;)

With the Big Game happening this weekend and your special girl’s Dance Night challenge tomorrow, these healthy cocktails along with the tips below are perfect to keep you having fun while feeling good. Make sure you check out these healthy Super Bowl recipes too! 

Many of you asked for healthy cocktail options and in the video below you’ll find out just what to order when you’re out and about. Keep in mind… we’ve never done this before and if we ever go on a guest bartending tour, we may meow for tips :)

*This video is intended for those that are above the legal drinking age. Thank you! :)

We’re also sharing tips for letting loose and having fun while staying safe & healthy…

In no particular order, here they are :)

♥ Always be sure to eat a healthy dinner before you enjoy your favorite cocktails! If you’re on the Tone It Up Nutrition Plan, you’re fueling your body throughout the day!

♥ Have a set number of drinks in mind to use as a  limit. Otherwise you run the risk of having a few too many. Tell yourself, ‘okay girl, 3-4 drinks throughout the whole night and I’m good!’

♥ Always have a designated driver, or another way of transportation. You do not want to ever risk hurting someone else, yourself or a friend.

♥ Drink water between cocktails so you stay hydrated and can wake up for that BootyCall workout in the morning! Keep a 1:1 ratio of water and drinks.

♥ Beach Babes do not do keg stands.

♥ Always have a partner in crime! Dance together, keep each other in check and make sure you’re having the best day/night ever :)

♥ Choose spritzers and champagne when you can! Spritzers made with soda water cut the wine calories in half.  Champagne is light and bubbly.  Sip slowly and it will fill you up! There are 2 NEW Spritzer recipes made with one of our favorite Superfoods in the NEW Love Your Body Edition! Learn more here!

♥ Never lose track of your drink by putting it down at a party, gathering or bar.

♥ Don’t feel pressured! If you’re not in the mood or if you have an early morning, order soda waters with lime and enjoy yourself with friends :) Dance, Dance, DANCE!

♥ We love a great glass of red wine. Order something top shelf you know you’ll enjoy. You will make it last longer.

♥ Getting the munchies? Us too! Keep the appetizers coming! We love ordering tuna tartar, grilled artichoke, brussels sprouts, chicken skewers, Caprese salad and anything vegetarian! Remember to stick with all things lean, clean & green. Making it a girls night at home?  Have kale chips pre made for you, veggies with your favorite healthy dips or hummus… or any of the snack options from your Tone It Up Nutrition Plan!

♥ Dancing? Dance with water! No spills on the dress and you’re working out with friends.
Beach Babes keep it classy & happy ;)

    LOVE the video ladies! It is just as fun to watch as last week’s episodes. Y’all picked some great cocktails to lighten up. Y’all should take Tone it Up to New Orleans and get the best Bloody Mary’s you’ll ever have. Can’t wait for next week and thank you for everything you do. I love being a part of this community!
