“You can sometimes fit up to 15 ounces in a wine glass, so it’s much easier to overdrink,” Goodson says. But remember: Any wine—white, red, or sparkling—is a better choice than nearly every cocktail in existence, since liquor packs a ton of calories in a much smaller serving.
Plus, it’s often combined with sugar-laden juices or artificially sweetened mixers. Goodson’s best party advice? Arrive hydrated and pound water throughout the night to counteract that booze, which is an infamous diuretic.
