It's that festive time of the year.
Beginning this week with Thanksgiving, we – especially in the Midwest – go full throttle into the festive holiday season with night after night of parties, get-togethers and events. It's the most wonderful time of the year.
But, it can catch up with you and your body if you don't watch it. No matter your age, you're not as young as you used to be and keeping those holiday calories off can be a battle.
Thankfully, this list has been shared many times this week. It provides easy insight into which drinks and beers contain the highest alcohol-to-calorie ratio.
Cuervo Gold, anyone? Jack and Diet Coke? How about a Mich Ultra or Milwaukee's own Miller Lite? All of these drinks fair well on the "get drunk, not fat" list?
But, no matter what your drink is or how you party this Christmas season, please do so responsibly. Merry, merry.
