The holidays call for extra helpings of food, family, friends, and fun. While enjoying the holiday festivities, you may also indulge in a spirited beverage. Eggnog, wassail, and mulled wine are all traditional beverages adorning holiday tables. But, how much do these drinks wreck your holiday health plan? Find out the nutritional value of a variety of alcoholic beverages and how they impact your body. We’ll also discuss healthier ways to toast the holidays such as lower calorie alcohol options and mock tail recipes.
