The Enlightened Happy Hour: An Interactive Drink Guide

As more restaurants make their nutrition information available, patrons are becoming all too aware of the shocking calorie counts behind some of their favorite menu items. Gut-busting appetizers like Chili’s Hot Spinach & Artichoke Dip with Chips (1,520 calories), Cheesecake Factory’s Factory Nachos with Spicy Chicken (1,930 calories), or Outback Steakhouse’s Bloomin’ Onion (1,959 calories) are dangerously delicious.

But did you know that the happy hour drinks you guzzle also come with their own significant calorie count?

Use this interactive guide to help you make smarter decisions about what you sip at the bar.  If you’re counting calories, the guide offers info on a variety of popular drinks by total calories and approximate calories per ounce.

The interactive also breaks down the alcohol beverage content in each drink, in case you’re looking to get the best buzz for your buck. Either way, click through to study up for your next happy hour.
