Alcohol...whats best?

I like buying the carling 99 calorie bottles to have at home. 2 on a friday night is a treat without adding too much to the calorie count for the day.

I think a vodka with a diet mixer is only about 50-60 cals.

I thought all alcohol drinks were high cal? but but then again that's Atkins skewing my thinking. For low carb I drink dry red wine and G&T with a diet tonic of course.

My favorites are Magners Cider (on ice, of course), sambuca - the ones that taste like liquorice and are really sweet! Gorgeous!

Bacardi and coke is never bad too =D

I don't drink alcohol myself so fortunately don't have this problem, but it seems going for a spirit with a diet mixer or wine is best, there are a lot of cals in beer/lager.

Calories in a shot of Gin (25ml): 56
Calories in a shot (25ml) of Vodka: 55
Calories in a glass (120ml) of wine: 89
Calories in a glass of Champagne (120ml): 89
Calories in a glass (50ml) of sherry: 68
Calories in a glass of Baileys (37ml): 129kcal
Calories in a pint of Guinness: 170
Calories in a pint of beer: 182kcal
Calories in a can (550ml) of lager: 221

All dry wines are much better as they are lower in sugar contents. Mix with soda water to dilute for a spritzer .... unless of course, you want to get blootered quicker! :D

1/2 bottle of vodka!!!! .... LMAO:D

One measure = 1 point (I see you're on WW)

Work out how many measures in 1/2 bottle?

Sounds like you're going to have some weekend! :p

Jeez, I'd be flat on my back with half a bottle of Vodka now, but back in the day that would have been a starter for the evening. ;)

Lol same here Jim, tho I think it'd only take one to put me flat on my back now!! I used to drink way too much of the stuff, and yes half a bottle (or even a whole bottle :eek:) would've been what I used to have before going out of the door lol! But I haven't drank now for over 6 years and I definitely don't miss it!

I do still drink Stirky, but with half my previous body mass I'm a wimp at drinking now. LMAO
