Top 12 Unhealthiest Holiday Drinks

Ho ho oh no, the holidays. Don’t get me wrong, I love the holidays. Especially the flavors involved; pumpkin, gingerbread, and eggnog all get a hearty oh-oh-yes from me. But the pure volume of food and drink, at some point, becomes nearly obscene. So you skip the big, gooey slice of gingerbread cake and opt for a drink instead, only to find, come January, that–what the gingersnap?!–you can’t snap your jeans. Welcome to the world of ridiculously caloric beverages; the ones that should make you fearful rather than cheerful. Here are twelve to put on Santa’s naughty list.
