5. Voli Orange Vanilla Fusion

Nothing says summer like a smooth, delicious creamsicle straight out of an ice-cream truck. But as with almost anything else, it's even better with a boozy twist. Enter Voli's Orange Vanilla Fusion, a vodka blend that's low in calories but big on sweetness. It's so tasty you can skip the mixers. Just pour over ice and make the appropriate "Ahhhhhhh" sound.

4. Mike's Lite Hard Lemonade

Ain't nothing better than a tangy, refreshing lemonade on a ball-boiling summer day. Enter Mike's. The "lite" version of the lemonade fave runs only 109 calories and 14 grams of sugars/carbs per bottle. There's also a cranberry-lemonade concoction if you like things a little tarter.
