Learn a little something each day….

Sitting here sipping my coffee, looking for tidbits for all of us, I actually just learned something I never knew.  It was in an article on How to slim down your summer cocktails.  You can read all the tips if you follow this link.  The thing I learned, was that the higher the Proof of the alcohol, the higher the calories.  I NEVER knew that before. I guess it makes sense, but it just never occurred to me.  Perhaps it never did for you either.
