Christmas cookies aren’t the only holiday favorites increasing your sugar intake this time of year. Holiday cocktails like eggnog, punch and champagne can also add sugar and calories to your celebrations, which may lead to unwanted pounds in unwanted places.

The good news is you can be festive without overindulging in sugary drinks. One trick is to avoid the highly sweetened mixers, where most of the sugar sneaks in. Your best bet is to stick with beer, wine and low-sugar mixers like soda water or a splash of fruit juice.

Below are six low-sugar libations to enjoy at holiday parties without derailing your goals.
