Can I get you a drink?

If you are like me, you like to have a glass or two of wine, beer or cocktail with a holiday meal or party. I'm not going to lie and say that I won't have one but I will be more conscious of the calories that each one holds. Here are some examples....

A 3.5 ounce glass of wine contains approximately 80 calories. It doesn’t matter if the wine is white wine or red wine because the calories come from the alcohol that the wine possesses, but due to this important fact, if you choose a wine that is higher in alcohol content - it will have a higher caloric value also. Dessert wines are even higher in calories, stating that a 3.5 ounce glass of dessert wine is around 165 calories.

The calorie content of beer is highly dependent upon the beer you chose. We have all seen the highly advertised Michelob Ultra, which almost makes that beer look like a sports drink - it contains 95 calories. But like wine, you’ll find that the beers that have the higher alcohol content also have the higher caloric content.

Liquor and Cocktails:
Absolut Vodka - 98 calories
Bacardi Gold Rum - 98 calories
Jack Daniel’s Whiskey - 98 calories
Seagram’s Gin - 120 calories
Jose Cuervo Gold Tequila - 96 calories
Red Bull and Vodtka - 177 calories
Mint Julep - 165 calories
Cosmopolitan - 213 calories
Vodka Tonic - 169 calories
