Alcoholic Drinks & Beverages Calories

Calories Alcoholic Drinks, Beverages

The calories in alcohol, including beer and wine, are called empty calories because they do not contain a significant amount of the three macronutrients: protein, fat, and carbohydrates. Alcoholic mixed drinks often have added elements like cola, tonic water, or milk, which can contain macronutrients as well as nutritional value from vitamins and minerals, particularly in the case of juice. However, most cocktails are made using mixers that are high in sugar, which is reflected in the calorie chart as a greater amount of total calories per serving. Nutrition labels reveal that many mixed drinks are also loaded with sugar from syrups. To keep a drink lower in calories, stick to liquor, also called spirits, which are almost pure alcohol due to the distilling process. Alcoholic drinks with a lower percentage of alcohol per volume, such as beer and wine, also have calories from carbohydrates like the wheat in beer and the natural sugar from grapes used to make wine. In general, it is best to avoid all alcoholic beverages on a weight-loss diet and ensure calories come from whole food sources with quality nutrition facts.
