How Many Calories Are in Your Favourite Drinks?
It's never too late to make a new years resolution! If you're trying to lose a few pounds, you may be considering cutting out booze altogether to reach your goals. If that's too difficult, consider which alcoholic drinks are best for your waistline. Read on for our guide to how many calories are in your favourite alcohol drinks.
White wine: 121 calories per glass... not too bad for a treat... but unfortunately that equates to 605 calories per bottle, so don't get too carried away!
Red wine: 125 calories per glass. Slightly more than the white, however keep in mind that red wine is full of antioxidants and a small amount (1 glass per day) may actually help to fight weight gain, as well as having many other health benefits.
Champagne: 96 calories per glass - the winner of the wines!
Beer: 208 calories per pint - alongside a high carb content, beer is not your beach bodies friend.
Cider: 210 calories per pint - unfortunately cider must also be reduced to an occasional treat.
Tequila: Those shots that seem like such a good idea at 1am are coming in at 104 calories - maybe we won't be so ready to agree next time.
Vodka and Gin: Vodka and gin are some of your best options, coming in at 55 calories each for a shot. However, add a sugary mixer and you'll only be adding more calories - a gin and tonic comes in at 120 calories. Mix with soda for no extra cals.
Alcohol doesn't have to be completely cut out, just be smart about what you order! Just enough time for a cheeky spray tan and gel mani before you head to the bar and order a round of vodka sodas!
