Truth â€“ drinking too much alcohol is not healthy â€“ especially if you have a medical condition, addiction, or weight loss goal. Alcohol can be beneficial for your health, though, especially if you choose the right liquor, beer, or cocktail. Here are some things to keep in mind the next time you’re out on the town.
You know the old saying, â€œCandy is dandy but liquor is quicker,â€ right? Liquor can be good for you, especially things like brandy and vodka, but only if you consume them in moderation and without mixers â€“ you know, the things that make liquor taste like candy. Mixers like sugary fruit juices and soda are the things that take your liquor’s original calorie count and blow it through the roof. Learn to enjoy your drinks straight or seek out some lower-calorie alternatives.
