egg-nogEver wonder how fattening and damaging a holiday drink is? its something I think about all the time.  Well, at least it fits on the list somewhere behind whether the boss will mind if I put the lampshade on my head at the holiday party and passing out under the Christmas tree.

So, how many calories does your holiday drinky-poo have?  Looks like those made with cream, half-and-half, or sugary ingredients are the worst offenders. Those that are more basic tend to be the lesser of evils. The list goes from healthiest options to the worst, and as you can see, unfortunately, most of the season’s tastiest drinks are on the naughty list.

Champagne – 6 oz, 120 calories
