Worst Alcoholic Beverages

Unfortunately most cocktails served at bars around the country are doing nothing except causing hangovers and adding to your waistline. Let’s look at some of the worst contenders to say no to next time you’re out at the bar:

Margarita

Giant margaritas are summer staples, but they’re also calorie bombs. Compound that with the fact that they often accompany tortilla chips and burritos…well, it’s not a good thing, at least as far as your weight loss efforts are concerned. Jumbo margaritas contain some 543 calories each and about as much sugar as a Snickers bar. Additionally, the mixes margaritas are made with usually feature high fructose corn syrup and preservatives. Yikes!

Strawberry Daiquiri

Strawberry daiquiris may seem like they’re made with real strawberries, but most of the time, they aren’t. Mixes are used instead, which feature the aforementioned high fructose corn syrup and preservatives, as well as artificial flavors. As if that wasn’t bad enough, this cocktail is frequently served in huge glasses and subsequently features nearly 2,000 calories, seemingly-endless carbs, and 53 grams of sugar. Not good.

Mai Tai

The mai tai is something of a “vintage” favorite. It features orgeat syrup, which is made of toasted almonds and sugar. The drink is also made with two kinds of rum, which is chock-full of sugar, as well as orange Cointreau, another syrup. Mai tais are about 260 calories a drink. Oh boy.

“Sour” Drinks

Any drink featuring sour mix is another huge “no.” Most sour mixes are brimming with high fructose corn syrup, artificial dyes and sweeteners, and other nastiness. If the alcohol you’re drinking with the sour mix is sweet, you’re in for a caloric explosion. For example, amaretto and sour mix equals about 400 calories and 15 teaspoons of sugar. Boooo.
