Why I Switched From Wine To Tequila

Every year I get a new lease on life! I always aim to improve one aspect of my daily routine. Two years ago I plunged into the fitness world and last year I gave my diet the reboot it needed. But this year I want to adjust my alcohol consumption.

Sure, I love the social aspects of drinking, from my weeknight wine to Saturday nights with the girls. I’m not someone who splurges every night but I do find myself having to workout extra hard the next day to burn off the extra calories.

Keeping a low calorie diet is all well and good, but my sugar intake could use some trimming. My best friend Kelly told me I should switch to tequila. What few tequila memories I have are…hazy at best. I still wrinkle my nose whenever anyone even says the word “shots.”

Don’t get me wrong, I’d never pass up a good Margarita, but they’re reserved for special occasions. Kelly kept mentioning 21Seeds- a tequila brand that’s naturally infused with real fruit, low in calories, and low in sugar.

Since 21Seeds’ tequila is an all-natural, real-fruit infused blanco tequila with no artificial flavors or sweeteners in their infusions, which is rare compared to most flavored spirits. I knew it was the ideal solution for my new year's resolution. Plus, it’s made by women - what could be better?

TBH, I knew nothing about tequila, but 21Seeds is made with ripe, hand-picked fruits and sticks to all-natural ingredients. They carry 3 infusions: Valencia Orange, Grapefruit Hibiscus, and Cucumber Jalapeño. All this was super intriguing to a newbie like me. Because it’s flavored, they claim some people like to sip it, no mixer needed. I had to find out if that was true.

I picked up a bottle and poured myself a small glass of the Grapefruit Hibiscus and took a sip. I was ready for that burning sensation, but it never came! It was smooth, delicious, and went down a treat. It’s totally replaced my mid-week wine, and it’s a go-to for our weekend girls’ nights.

I’ve created my own low sugar cocktails with 21Seeds, but my latest ingenious - if I do say so myself - cocktail has to be ice, lemon juice, 21Seeds Grapefruit Hibiscus, and soda - refreshing and inviting. A simple drink that doesn’t require any mixers and additional add-ons.

21Seedsis available at most national chains (Whole Foods, Safeway, Costco, Target, Walmart, Sam’s Club, and many more!) and online. I can get it delivered right to my door from their website, or after a particularly tough day, within the hour via Drizly or GoPuff.

It’s decided. I’m ditching the overly fermented glasses of wine and the calorie-laden sugary cocktails - often more sugar than alcohol - and switching to tequila.

The 2022 slogan is no longer “new year, new me”. It’s “new year, new tequila”! Give 21Seeds a try today, you won’t regret making the switch.
