Carbohydrates are the main source of energy for the body's functions. Most of the calories in these beverages come from carbohydrates.

Sodium is an essential nutrient needed by the body to work efficiently. Sodium is not manufactured by the body and therefore needs to be obtained through foods in the diet. Seagram's wine coolers do contain a bit of sodium. Seagram's Escapes Peach Fuzzy Navel wine cooler provides 35 mg sodium, as does their Wild Berries wine cooler. Their Strawberry Daiquiri wine cooler has 40 mg sodium. Although one wine cooler has low-sodium, the content will add up if you drink many.
Seagram's Escapes are all alcoholic beverages. Seagram's Escapes Lime Melonade is 3.2 percent alcohol by volume, approximately the same as a light beer. Alcohol is derived from the fermentation of sugar and starches. Alcohol contains 7 calories per gram, but those calories have no nutritional value. Drinking alcohol can affect your mental state, making you "tipsy." It slows your reflexes and muddles your ability to reason. You should never drive or operate machinery after drinking alcohol. If you are going to drink alcoholic beverages, moderation is the key.
The American Heart Association recommends that women have no more than one serving of alcohol each day and men should have no more than two servings daily. Monitoring your alcohol intake can reduce your caloric intake and also help reduce your risks for heart disease and other health conditions.
