There are loads of reasons to drink red wine: a glass a day may boost heart health, it has no fats, and, at around 100 calories a glass, often has fewer calories than a venti cappuccino from Starbucks.
Since red wine is the main ingredient in mulled wine, you'd think it would be healthy. But not when it comes to calories. Mulled wine can clock in at 356 calories per cup, mostly because of added sugar.
To enjoy the holiday cocktail without all the calories, cut back on sugar and intensify the cinnamon, cloves, and orange flavors.
