Different alcoholic beverages have drastically different amounts of calories. The stronger the drink, the more calories it contains. The number of calories in any beverage depends on the percentage of sugar and alcohol.

 

  • 1 g of alcohol = 7 calories.
  • 1 g sugar = 4 calories.

 

A glass of wine (~ 120 ml) contains the same number of calories as 30 g of vodka with ice, or a glass of gin and tonic. If you are worried about your weight, do not choose sweet cocktails. Many alcoholic cocktails with added syrups are very rich in calories, which is why a better choice is a drink with lower alcohol content and ice. It will stay cool longer, and the ice will dilute the alcohol while melting. The time needed to consume the drink will lengthen, resulting in a lower urge to get the next drink
