Sure, the piña colada’s full of sugary pineapple, and coconut flavoring… But, according to dietician and nutritionist Katie Cavuto, the margarita is worse. Because where the piña colada only contains rum, the margarita has 2 different types of alcohol – tequila and triple sec… and that adds a lot of calories. Plus, restaurant-size margaritas tend to be bigger than piña coladas AND have more sugar, thanks to the limeade in them. And the coconut cream in the colada has fat, which can help you feel full. So you’re better off sticking a cocktail umbrella in the colada.
