A Comprehensive Alcohol Calorie Chart Counter
Which Is The Lowest Calorie Alcohol?

Alcohol Calorie Chart - If you're craving for a glass of classic Rum and Coke, but worried about the calories in Bacardi and coke, you should go for the alcohol with the lowest calorie content. Before we start....if you have arrived at this page looking for an in-depth look at how alcohol calories affect your body and its metabolism, then please read Calories in Alcohol explained.

If, however, you would like to learn about the calorific content of your drink or want to find out the lowest calorie alcohol then please consult our alcohol calorie chart. These charts have been updated to include popular drinks.

Keep in mind, however, that regardless of the calorific content of a drink, it is important to stay within moderate drinking guidelines, if you don't wish to develop drinking problems.

As per the World Cancer Research Fund, alcoholic beverages makes up almost 10% of total calorie intake among alcohol drinkers. 

Alcoholic drinks, just like a lot of other beverages, has calories that could add up pretty quickly. The adult population takes in nearly 100 calories daily on average from alcoholic drinks. Downing a couple of drinks, on the other hand, could add up to 500 calories, or even more, to your intake. Thus, the calories in the alcohol you drink could play a considerable role in weight management. Moreover, when you drink alcohol, whatever you just ate gets stored as fat deposits. 

Many alcoholic drinks have minimal to no nutritional value. Thus, if you’re trying to maintain a healthy weight, you would want to watch the number of alcoholic beverages you drink. Cocktails mixed with juice, cream, soda, or ice cream could have particularly high calorie amounts. If you think that you are having difficulty cutting back on your alcohol consumption, talk with your physician or health care provider.

What are the Benefits to Low Calorie Drinks?

Before we get into what drinks have lower calories, let’s take a minute to talk about what the benefits are to choosing a drink with lower calories.

One factor would be that calories coming from alcohol has little, if any, nutritional benefit. You may be able to argue a slight benefit depending on what a drink is made with (for example, fruit juice), however most drinks provide no substantial benefit to our health.

As a result, calories from alcoholic drinks are commonly referred to as “empty calories”. If we consume more calories than we burn in a day, then we would store the calories which can lead to weight gain.

So the benefit of lower calorie drinks is that you are avoiding some of the unnecessary calories in drinks. Many liquors can be mixed with soda’s, however choosing a mixer like seltzer, or soda water, would be a lower calorie choice as they have zero calories.Please consult our alcohol calorie chart.

 Low calorie drinks does not correlate with a lower percentage of alcohol. This is important to remember, as some may not be aware. Another factor that contributes to having a lower calorie drink would be the serving size of the drink. The standard drink sizes may vary from what we can pour ourselves at home.

The reasons can be different for each person. The following alcohol calorie chart includes mixed drinks that are 100 calories or less. Please keep in mind the serving size listed for each drink, as this may vary from drink to drink.

As shown below, rum mixed with diet coke has the lowest amount of calories for a single mixed drink.

Let's all admit it, sometimes there is nothing more comforting at the end of a long day than a well-deserved glass of wine. However, sipping over the limit could wreak havoc on your weight and your shape, and not only by adding calories to your diet.

This is because your body couldn’t store calories from alcohol, the way it stores food calories. Thus, when you ingest alcohol, your metabolism would stop what it is doing to remove the booze from your system.

We have tried to include the most popular alcoholic drinks (in the U.S.,U.K. and the E.U.) in our alcohol calorie chart, however, if you have a specific question about an alcoholic drink, then please contact us.

And finally, in answer to the question, "How many calories in alcohol?", ......it all depends on the type of alcohol AND what you mix it with. Check out our alcohol calorie chart.

Concerning Signs from Drinking Alcohol

Alcohol is among the most widely-used psychoactive substances in the world. It could have powerful effects on a person’s mental state and mood. It is important to note the concerning signs for alcohol use. If you consume alcoholic drinks, do so responsible and in moderation. Individuals who drink alcohol regularly or consume larger quantities, are at a higher risk for developing health concerns and an addiction to alcohol.

Signs to be aware of would be:

  • Drinking more than you initially intended
  • Drinking more frequently than in the past
  • Missing important family and social events
  • Your drinking has a negative impact on your career
  • Your drinking has a negative impact on your relationships
  • Experiencing hangovers frequently
  • Blacking out

If you, or someone you know, can identify with any of the above points, take time to do your research. These do not mean that an individual is an alcoholic, or will become an alcoholic. However, if you are experiencing negative consequences from your drinking it is worth exploring.

Talking to someone you trust could be a place to start. Some choose to talk about their concerns with their Primary Care Physician and hear their feedback. Others feel that attending therapy is a positive choice as this can help address other concerns that they may be facing.

There are other resources for those wishing to quit drinking; these can be used in conjunction with hypnosis or as stand-alone treatments, please consult our alcohol calorie chart.
