Alcohol isn’t cheap, especially at restaurants. Order wine by the glass, and you could be looking at a 400-percent markup
. And as delicious as they are, fancy, fruity drinks are also overpriced. Even at a budget-friendly chain restaurant, you could end up paying as much as $7 for a Strawberry Daiquiri.
Soda isn’t much better – you can pay 300 to 600 percent over cost. While it’s not as pricey as alcohol, the cost adds up. The cheapest (and healthiest) route, of course, is to order water.
