Now, back to the party-talk.

Do you know just how many calories are in your favorite drink?  No one likes to think calories when you’re having fun, so we’ll let you know ahead of time.  Here’s the short-list:

  • Mai Tai: 260 calories
  • Cosmopolitan: 216 calories
  • Manhattan: 150 calories
  • Small margarita (about 3.5 ounces- maybe for an elf?!): 153 calories
  • Craft beer (generally speaking): starting at 200 calories in one can
  • Merlot (5 oz.): 122 calories

Yikes.  We know—kind of depressing, right?  Never fear.  We have a fun new twist on “skinny” cocktails.  Try these recipes at your next event.
