If you are not a drinker, why not just have sparkling water with a big wedge of lime? It's refreshing, calorie free and the bubbles make it a little festive.
If you do want an alcoholic drink, citrus vodka with soda water is light and has very few calories. Or you can have half soda water and half cranberry juice. Campari and soda is one of my favorite drinks, but it is too bitter for a lit of people. Some people drink Jack and Diet Coke or rum and Diet Coke, but I try to avoid diet sodas.
If you are at a fancy resort, there are often specialty cocktails. Sometimes they are full of sugary juices, but often there are options that are lighter. If there is a good bartender, ask him/her to make you something. Unless the bar is jammed, bartenders often like to show off their skills and do something more interesting than the typical booze and mixer combinations that most people order.
If you have formed the habit of checking on every new diet that comes along, you will find that, mercifully, they all blur together, leaving you with only one definite piece of information: french-fried potatoes are out. ~~Jean Kerr
