Calories

Seagram's Escapes wine coolers are available in 11.2 oz., one serving bottles. According to the free MyPlate calorie tracker app, one bottle of Seagram's Calypsy Colada wine cooler has 218 calories. Their Strawberry Daiquiri wine cooler contains 224 calories and the Wild Berries has 212 calories. Calorie requirements for the day vary by age, gender and amount of physical activity. Although wine coolers should not be a major source of calories, for a 2,000-calorie-a-day diet they do provide 7.5 to 9.0 percent. None of these Seagram's Escapes beverages contain any fat.

Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are the main source of energy for the body's functions. Most of the calories in these beverages come from carbohydrates. Again, wine coolers should not provide the main source of carbohydrates for the day. Seagram's Escapes Strawberry Daiquiri wine cooler contains 41 g of carbohydrates with 28 g of sugar, and the Wild Berries wine cooler has 38 g of carbohydrates with 26 g of sugar. Seagram's Strwaberry Daiquiri wine cooler contains 41 g of carbohydrate with 28 g of sugar.

Alcohol

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.

Warnings

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.
