Xmas Drinks Calorie Cheat Sheet

Alcohol is as synonymous with Christmas as turkey, presents and the Three Wise Men.

Work lunches, parties – I mean people really don’t need a ‘proper’ excuse to pop down the pub in December.

I am a firm believer in ‘everything in moderation’ so rather than preach about knowing your limits let’s just assume you are all a sensible bunch and won’t be waking up with blurry eyes and your Xmas jumper the wrong way round.

Christmas is probably not the best time to start worrying about your calorie consumption, but with so many opportunities for drinks it will do you no harm to get a ball park figure on what is actually contained in your festive tipples.

Armed with this basic information, you can quite easily half your usual alcohol calories while still getting involved and having a good time.
