Discover how many calories are in your favorite drinks so you can make wiser choices during the upcoming holiday season and into the new year.
However pleasant the occasional cold beer, chilled glass of wine, or sweet cocktail may be, it’s also important to note that drinking alcohol can have negative effects on your body and overall health.
