Let’s preface this with: If you’re really looking to lose weight, it’s probably best to skip alcohol altogether. But during holiday party season (or, really, during any season), that’s pretty hard to do. If you’re going to imbibe, the least you can do is make informed choices. Here, 20 popular cocktails, from least to most caloric (per single-drink serving). Happy sipping!
