I guess that when you combine sugar with alcohol, whether it be added to the liquor at the distillery, or you add it to your cocktail you are looking at a double whammy.
My feeling on the subject are very simple, I believe that a limited amount of sugar in your life is fine, it is like so many other things that it is so easy to over indulge on, you need to exercise some self control and use things in moderation rather than being a glutton. For me, I like a good cocktail, but I avoid the ones that have ingredients in the mixes or spirits that are loaded with sugar or even worse high fructose corn syrup. You can get great flavors from the sweetness found naturally in juices and fruits without adding all of the sugar Read your labels, you will be surprised how much sugar is contained in many "healthy" products.

Just keep things in perspective and use your head when it comes to the over use of anything, whether it be alcohol, sugar or anything else. ;o)
