How about having a wine spritzer? THat's what I frequently go for myself, although it is not because I am worried about calories (I am not a calorie-counter). But, I have very little tolerance for booze and even a small amount can make me tipsy so I find wine spritzers ideal. Typically a spritzer is white wine mixed with soda (you can also for for bubbly mineral water) but I prefer red wine with soda. THat gives me a fairly large volume to drink and I can make it last. Even if I have two, that will still come up to only one glass of red wine which is healthy.
Enjoy the party!
