Holiday Party Calorie Counter

No point having a Scrooge-ish disposition about holiday indulging. But knowing where the calories lie doesn't hurt, either.

Party Time Calories

With the holidays upon us, a cocktail party is more than likely in the near future for many of us. But, when it comes time to spread a little cheer, don't throw those healthy eating habits to the wind. Word to the wise: Not all cocktails and hors d'oeuvres are created equal. For example, our Cranberry Mimosa is a mere 100 calories and a rich cup of egg nog is more than four times that amount clocking in at 450 calories per 6 fl. oz. Alas, don't let the stats get you down. Eating smart during the holidays doesn't mean you need to steer clear of the party spread. Armed with your cocktail party calorie knowledge, you'll be able to make wise choices and, who knows, maybe even indulge a little.
