Ok, let’s be honest! Super Bowl is ALL about the food and drinks. And I GUESS football, friends, and family (lol)! Hmmm and music and commercials too! Anyways, it’s a great excuse for having a Sunday Funday, without thinking about calorie counting, hangovers, or any repercussions of letting loose. But when I was informed of some stats of regular beer, wine, and cocktail favorites, I was pretty shocked. I also had the opportunity to give Miller64 a try, while learning more about calorie counting in common drink options. Learning + drinking = win, win!
•16 oz Bud Light Lime-A-Rita has 440 calories?
•15 oz of Skinnygirl Sangria has 396 calories?
•24 oz of Heineken has 300 calories?
Yea, I didn’t know either! But on the lighter side:
•24 oz Michelob Light is 268 calories
•12 oz of white wine is 240 calories
•24 oz Sam Adams Light is 238 calories
•24 oz Bud Light is 220 calories
•24 oz Corona Light is 210 calories
•24 oz of Miller Lite is 192 calories
•24 oz of Miller64 is 128 calories
The bf and I had a taste of the beer and it was crisp and refreshing. It truly is light in texture, calories, and in taste, so you don’t feel overly full from having one. The beer complimented our chicken dinner and I am sure would go great with pub grub for the Super Bowl too, but with much less guilt!
