The holiday season is full of parties, and parties are full of various types of grog. Sugary fruit punches laced with rum and eggnog that should really just be called a saturated-fat bomb. One cup of eggnog contains over 11 g. of saturated fat, as well as 343 calories.
Here are two suggestions to try as alternative to those standard Winter party drinks.
- Spritz it: Simply add seltzer water to your glass of wine. This works with any color of wine — red, white, or rosé. Not only does it cut your caloric intake in half, but it also helps you avoid the dreaded hangover.
- Go bubbly: Champagne is actually rather low in calories. One serving of this sparkling wine contains 91 calories. To make the drink more festive, add a cranberry, strawberry, or raspberry for color.
