    Hi All,

    I used to like lager & lime but have switched to drinking White Zinfendale Rose wine all the time now, but i'm interested to find out if other alcoholic drinks are lower in calories??

    Cheers,

    Calorie Counting
    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

    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!
