June Bug Cocktail

This slimming friendly June Bug Cocktail is a perfect summer tipple! You can enjoy it even when calorie counting or following plans like Weight Watchers.

The weather is hotting up, so we decided to come up with some cocktails like this June Bug Cocktail. We love Midori, White Rum, lemon & lime & Lilt so decided to combine them all!

White Rum is one most slimming friendly spirits there is at just 73 calories for 35ml. It’s really not bad at all!

When it starts to get warm, we like to sit outside with a jug of this June Bug Cocktail, and glug the lot. The June Bug has long been my favourite cocktail!

What do I need to make this June Bug Cocktail?

This post contains affiliate links. Find out what this means.

Firstly you need Midori. Midori is a melon liqueur, and is really rather nice! It’s what gives the June bug it’s green tinge at the bottom of the jug.

You can buy it from most major supermarkets (we’ve seen it in Asda) or you can get it from Amazon.

First, you’ll need a good sized jug or pitcher (about 1 litre). Don’t worry if you haven’t got one, you can pick one like this one up on Amazon.

You’ll also need some nice glasses, like these hi-ball tumblers from Amazon.
