Many of us enjoy a tipple or two and if you are like me a lot of the time I don’t consider the calorie content of these drinks however when you do actually look into the quantity in more detail you could be staggered at what the calorie counts actually are. We will not only look at what is the low calorie alcoholic drinks but also will list some other key attributes such as gluten free or vegan brands.

What Are Some Calorie Contents of Drinks

The following are generalizations of expected calorie content per drink:

Beer light 355ml 103 calories, regular beer 153 calories and craft beer or higher ABV is up to 350 calories.

Spirits / liquor 45ml on average 97 calories without the mixers.

Wine 155ml generally around 120 – 130 calories with the dessert wines coming up to 165 calories for 90ml.

The higher the ABV or sweetness drinks have a higher calorie count based on the fact that these drinks have more sugar which converts into alcohol by volume.

The following are some recommendations of alcoholic beverage brands that can be ordered to enjoy in the comfort of your own home, just click of the photo of the product.
