My first apartment had no air conditioner, which meant on sweltering summer days, I'd practically get heat-induced hallucinations of frozen drinks (not necessarily alcoholic, by the way). I would plod down to the nearby deli, where a self-serve slushie machine hummed out front.

Those extra cocktails can add up to a lot of surplus calories! If you're going to imbibe, choose wisely. Naughty If you're planning on driving (or having more than one) it's best to avoid Martini-type cocktails, which tend to be very high in alcohol. A single restaurant-sized martini may contain more than three "drinks" worth of alcohol (and calories).
