Our schedules will be overflowing! Speaking of overflowing, I know that there will be drinks o' plenty surrounding us wherever we go, and why not? We are in the season of celebrating right?

One drink is defined as 4 oz of wine, 12 oz of beer, and 1.5 oz of 80 proof spirits. Here are some quick facts to get you through those holiday parties!
Keep in mind when trying any of these drinks that the caloric intake can change depending on what you add or remove. Also, I really don't know to many people that can limit themselves to one drink in a social environment, so make sure to pace yourself! As always moderation is key here!!
