One of the easiest ways to put on pounds this season is to have too many holiday spirits. Keeping track of the calories per clink can be quite a challenge. Mojitos, coquitos, and beers! Oh, my!

Luckily, there’s a new healthy wine spritzer called Bon Affair that has about half the calories of wine, contains electrolytes, and pairs well with just about anything. At just 300 calories per 750 ml bottle, this refreshing bubbly allows us to minimize our calorie intake per beverage without lessening the fun.

If you’re a fan of Prosecco or champagne, you’ll love the light, sizzling crisp in every sip. Bon Affair comes in two varieties, Sauvignon Blanc (white) or Syrah (red). Both are slightly sweeter and less dry than your typical glass of Moët & Chandon, despite neither having any added sugar.

While delicious on its own, Bon Affair’s balanced, suave flavor makes it a versatile sub for vino in all our favorite festive cocktail recipes, like this Holiday Sangria Spritzer or a simple mimosa.

‘Tis the season to salud! Happy, healthy holidays!
