Do you like Pina Colada?……….

Sipping a delicious cocktail in the sun is a vision of heavenly holiday relaxation for many. Unfortunately, cocktails in general don’t really go with bikini wearing. An 8-ounce pina colada packs in 640 calories – more than a hamburger with cheese! Another cocktail classic, the margarita, is also full of empty calories – the Cointreau alone adds 95 calories per ounce.

Luckily, the people at Fitness Magazine have revised versions of these two classics, that allow us enjoy our cocktails, with a little less guilt.
