If you can make it through all your holiday gatherings without imbibing.well.Santa hats off to you.But if you’ve resigned yourself to an adult beverage or two to survive another cringe-worthy office party or a five-hour dinner at Uncle Hank’s we don’t blame you.
So if you’re offered a festive pour of white wine.
Which one is a smarter choice? Amy Goodson,R.D.,who has worked with the Dallas Cowboys,says that going with sparkling wine is more likely to set you up for success,and not just because it has fewer calories.”Often,people will sip champagne a little slower because of the bubbles.”she says. “You’re just less likely to chug a carbonated beverage.”
The actual glass you’re handed affects your drinking behavoir. too.”You can sometimes fit up to 15 ounces in a wineglasss,so it’s much easier to overdrink.”Goodson says .
But remember.Any wine-white,red, or sparkling-is better choice than nearly every coctail in existence.since liquor packs a ton of caloires in a much smaller serving.Plus,it’s often combined with sugar-laden juices or artificially sweetened mixers.
Goodson’s best party advice?
Arrive hydrated and pound water throughout the night to counteract that booze,which is an infamous diuretic.
